Thank you, Dr Gawande, for writing this profoundly moving book. you have found the words that express my thoughts and feelings on the subject of dying, and have given me hope. I am in contact with many residents in Aged Care homes and it is heartbreaking more than anything else to see them being regimented and deprived of even the basic care needed because of lack of staff, let alone observing the tragedy of them losing their personhood.
Special thanks indeed for sharing the deeply moving experience of your father’s journey in the latter part of his life. I am eager to share your book with as many people as possible.
