A book which explores natural death and dying in Ireland to-day.
Through the presence of loving family members and through the compassion and dedication of doctors , nurses and all lay and professional carers, the courage and dignity of both the dying and their carers is demonstrated.
Conversations on last moments are captured through dialogue with family members. A natural rhythm unfolds, where death is neither hastened nor postponed. The dying person takes their last breath knowing that they are surrounded by love and compassion.
Caring for the dying is rooted in Irish culture and tradition for centuries and, as this volume demonstrates, this tradition of community, involving families, religious and neighbours has evolved into the present-day system of hospice care.
