Being Mortal

Author : Atul Gawande

Genre : Nonfiction

This book is a must-read for anyone caring for elderly parents or a terminally-ill loved one. I read this a few years ago when my family was caring for our elderly parents. A friend read it recently and it reminded me that this was an essential book to review. It’s not just about the issues with dying; it’s about living to the last with autonomy, dignity, and peace. It’s about asking better questions and creating a safe place for those answers to be heard:

1.”What do you understand about the situation and it’s possible outcomes?”

2. “What do you fear and most, and what do you hope for?”

3. “What trade-offs are you willing to make?”

4. “What is the course of action that best serves this understanding?”
