No one has to die alone by Dr. Lani Leary (Book Review #23)

Too tired to read? You can listen to Jeyran’s review below.

“Caring for a terminally ill loved one can be the single biggest challenge of your life. Drawing from her experience sitting with over 500 people as they died and caring for her own terminally ill father, Dr. Lani Leary gently guides caregivers, family, and friends through the difficult transitions of illness, death, and bereavement.

 

No One Has to Die Alone offers the practical skills, vocabulary, and insights needed to truly address the needs of a dying loved one while caring for yourself through the process. Dr. Leary shows both patient and caregiver how to rise above feelings of fear and isolation to find peace and meaning in each person’s unique end-of-life experience.” – by Lani Leary

Review

Dr. Leary shares some wise words in this book. Ever thought to yourself if how we die matters? Or if we can make a difference to anyone we know that is dying? In this book, we not only learn more about having a better perspective but we also come to terms with finding meaning in the loss we feel.

What I mostly loved about this book was that the Author’s journey starts with her personal experience of losing her own father. I felt sorrowful reading her story and once finished, I had to take a couple of minutes to pull myself together. From this experience, the Author then begins to give us a meaningful insight into how this feels and how we should act. You will be shocked to know that this book will change your perspective and will create a better ‘YOU’ for when it’s needed.

“Dying may be painful; death is not” Dr. Leary informs us. We can cope, and we can process ways to grief in our own ways, but she emphasizes that validation is the key to resolving pain.

Also, the Author discusses that children grieve differently than adults. This is a very sensitive topic, and very few have the right answer. I believe this book does give a very insightful idea on how it can be processed.

In summary, I recommend this book to people that are interested in the psychology of death and dying and anyone that is going through grief or has a loved one that is terminally ill.
