As a unique guide to coping with life-limiting illness, The Journey Home, Stories of Compassion and Inspiration from AseraCare Hospice is a book that provides a resource for patients, families and physicians who struggle with how and when to discuss the hospice option. The book was authored by K.T.
Anders and John Ross, and published by AseraCare Hospice. It offers a firsthand look at the benefits of hospice through more than 60 personal accounts of AseraCare patients.
The book guides patients and family members through the decision-making process, the roles of the care team and, ultimately, bereavement. The book provides examples of how to broach the hospice conversation and how to present it as a positive option. It reinforces the perspective of hospice as a valuable component of care delivered to a patient with terminal illness. Anders, the book’s author, knew hospice and its benefits well. Anders’ mother had undergone hospice, and unbeknownst to AseraCare, Anders herself was seeking treatment for a terminal illness that eventually brought her to hospice. Her husband wrote the final chapter dealing with bereavement after Anders passed away. With this book, Anders’ journey has created a lasting body of knowledge on which others can draw.
