Several times, with an earnest, musing air, Maman repeated, ‘She said to me, “I do it out of affection. These can help you decide if you should draw up your own will and also help you decide if any of the pre-printed will forms available from stationers and charities are suitable.

an assistant, looked in: there was no point in operating; the femur had not shifted, and with three months of rest it would re-knit.

You might have access to legal advice through an addition to an insurance policy that covers the costs of a solicitor preparing or checking a will. Magda, Lachs’ mother, finally did pass in the “subterfuge” way that hospice workers sometimes quietly administer: a nurse offered a morphine solution that depressed Magda’s lung function and finally accelerated her death. In this beautifully written book, de Beauvoir reflects on the emotional and physical pain of watching her mother suffer and ultimately pass away. She records everything around her with a keen eye, from the small kindnesses of some nurses to the lack of concern for her mother’s dignity by others. A stark reminder that the worst can happen to anyone and that illness affects not just the patient, but all those that love them.

Maybe they do have family, but for whatever reason, the loved ones needed to leave, or live far away, or just cannot bear to be present. Executors are the people who will be responsible for carrying out your wishes and for sorting out the estate. For the wizards, Gunnie Rose has already acquired a fearsome reputation and they’re at a desperate crossroad, even if they won’t admit it. Floating on an iceberg in the Arctic Ocean, the frigid air sweeping over your body as you look at the nighttime sky.His favorite answer comes from a medical colleague of his, but it’s an old yarn: being shot to death at 90 years old by an irate husband while biking away from sleeping with the gun-toting man’s wife.

There are “death cafes,” informal coffee hours where friends and strangers get together, eat cake, and talk about dying.But when taken as prescribed, most people who choose to end their life this way will, like Maynard, pass with tranquility. Many surveys suggest that about three-quarters of Americans want to die at home, though the reality is that most Americans, upwards of 68 percent, will die in a hospital or other medicalized environment. Surely hospice workers, physicians, oncologists, “right-to-die” advocates, cancer-cell biologists, bioethicists, and the like have a special view on dying. In his work with American cancer patients, he’s careful not to suggest that dying will be comfortable. Here de Beauvoir almost effortlessly captures the ambivalence that can exist between mothers and daughters, the awkward mix of intimacy and distance, years of difficult visits and strained conversations disrupted by sudden flashes of unanticipated tenderness.

if you die without a will, there are certain rules which dictate how the money, property or possessions should be allocated. Similar to how birth doulas help pregnant women bring new life to the world, end-of-life doulas help people on their way out.This is a stunning memoir and, whilst definitely a difficult read, is an important work of literature and I am very glad to have had the pleasure of reading it. Long considered one of Simone de Beauvoir’s masterpieces, A Very Easy Death is a profoundly affecting, day-by-day recounting of her mother’s final days after she is hospitalized following a fall.
