This week I am talking to Martha J Atkins PHD about her book Sign Posts of Dying.
Sign Posts of Dying tells about the unique language and behaviors of the dying. Brief so as not to overwhelm yet thorough enough to get the information needed, each Signpost shines a light on often ignored or unrecognized aspects of the dying process. Is your beloved hearing people in the hallway? Are they talking about ‘other rooms’ or friendly visitors who aren’t family members? This book can help you recognize the language of dying. Useful for caregivers, mental health pros, and hospice volunteers, Signposts will help you understand some of what you may experience as you walk with a person who is leaving this world. One reader says, “Very intimate and makes what is a difficult topic for lots of people very safe.”
