Life is an Adventure. So Is Death.

Immersion Caregiving: Love’s Last Measure

One year and four months before he died, Mike said, “I can’t identify what it is exactly, but something is happening inside my body. I have to pay attention now. I know I’m dying. Don’t know when, but things are really changing.”  After almost 30 years with Parkinson’s Disease, Mike’s  revelation marked the major transition of our lives, the moment of complete immersion in the ultimate, inevitable adventure.

In my session at the Aging in America Conference in San Diego (March 13, 2014), I will present, Immersion Caregiving: Strategies for keeping our loved ones at home and embracing the enlightening experience of dying.
