George Bonanno’s book, The Other Side of Sadness: What the New Science of Bereavement Tells Us About Life After Loss, is thought-provoking and challenges many conventional views about bereavement. I have written about the aspects of this book which I found particularly interesting in Section 11 of Losing Elderly Parents.
‘End-of -life issues do not just end with death’ is an article which I wrote reflecting on my experiences as a daughter witnessing the final stages of my parents lives. It was published in the Irish Times yesterday. To read the article click on http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/health/2011/0322/1224292769725.html
This post, which draws on the work of Dr Phil Stafford, is in Section 6 on Losing Elderly Parents.
