All about Madelyn
The Full Story
For more than fifteen years, hospice professional Madelyn Balitz has cared for people nearing their final days and been a cornerstone of support for their loved ones. She poured herself into All is Well: Understanding the End of Life, Caregiving, and Hospice Care with compassion, personal stories, and courage. Readers will come to understand the special needs of the dying and those who care for them.
Cicely Saunders, founder of the modern hospice movement in the 1960’s, said: “You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.” In All is Well, Balitz illustrates both what it means to live fully, and to die peacefully. You may have someone in mind for whom you are the primary caregiver, or someone you realize is not long for this world—but this book will cause you to also think about yourself, and to start making some of the most important choices you will ever have the opportunity to make. Then, and only then, do we have the freedom and peace to know, all is well.
