I'm sorry if this is a duplicate. I thought I had already posted this info here but can't find it by searching. This is an email I sent the local support group about a year ago:


I'm on the National Institute on Aging's email alert list for new publications from the NIA.** This week, I received an alert about a new publication on "End of Life." Chapters include: Providing Comfort at the End of Life, Finding Care at the End of Life, Dementia at the End of Life, Understanding Health Care Decisions, What Happens When Someone Dies, Things to Do After Someone Dies, Getting Help for Your Grief, and Planning for End-of-Life Care Decisions. You can download the publication online, read it online, or order a (free) print copy. Here's the information I received:


NEW from the National Institute on Aging!
"End of Life: Helping with Comfort and Care"

Providing Comfort at the End of Life with Help from the National
Institute on Aging

When someone close to us is nearing the end of life, there may be
many questions. How can I offer comfort and support? Is there one
"best" place for caregiving? Are there some approaches to making
decisions that can be helpful? Do people with dementia have special
needs at the end of life? End of Life: Helping with Comfort and Care,
a new publication from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of
the National Institutes of Health (NIH), can help answer these
questions and others.

Older people need increasingly more care as they near the end of
life. Families and friends want to provide comfort, but may not know
what to do or say. This new publication can help. Written in a
compassionate tone, End of Life: Helping with Comfort and Care
features large print, helpful questions to ask, and resources for
those who want to learn more.

To preview, download or print End of Life: Helping with Comfort and
Care, go to:

You can also order a free print copy:
