Packed with extraordinarily helpful insights and inspiring true stories, The Art of Dying Well is about living as well as possible for as long as possible and adapting successfully to change. Award-winning journalist Katy Butler shows readers how to thrive in later life (even with a chronic medical condition), get the best from health care providers, and make their own "good deaths" more likely. Butler addresses topics such as:

• How to successfully age in place
• Why to pick a younger doctor and how to speak honestly with her
• When not to call 911
• How to make death a sacred rite of passage rather than a medical event

Based on Butler's experience caring for aging parents and that of hundreds of people who have successfully helped loved ones have good deaths, The Art of Dying Well draws on the expertise of national leaders in family medicine, palliative care, geriatrics, hospice, and oncology. This revised and updated handbook of preparations for a good end of life will help you make the most of your remaining time, be it decades, years, or months.
