It Is What It IsBook - 2014
This is the book to provide to nurses, caregivers, volunteers, patients, patients' friends and families, and donors to help them better understand thehospice experience.It Is What It Is gives us an inside look at hospicecare through the eyes of a volunteer who hasworked for the last seven years at a Canadian hospice house."We all know that we have to go one day andleave everything we love and treasure behind. It is not easy to accept that the world will go on and we will no longer be part of it. But remember. . .we areresponsible for how we want to live our lives and it is also up to us to determine how we want to die. I believe that we live a much happier and more meaningful life when we make death our friend."The stories and poems I have collected provide comfort as we prepare for our last journey, thegreatest adventure, and perhaps the only really new thing that will happen to us. The stories in this book are real. Every death is unique. There can be so much beauty in dying, we only need to be open to seeing and feeling it."--Ute Freitag
