Does dying after a long illness hurt? How do you take care of the dying in their last hours? What documents should everyone fill in for the sake of their relatives? In a humane, lively and relaxed style, Felix Hütten gives answers to countless questions on the topic of dying, which are much too rarely discussed. A book for anyone who is preparing to die - and the people around them.
In every relationship, family and circle of friends, someone approaches death at some point. In most cases, dying is a long process that often leaves the person and their relatives helpless. The young medical journalist, Felix Hütten, takes up this subject in an accessible and factual manner: from medical details to advice on how to deal with doctors, to the difficult question of turning off life-saving equipment and mourning. Without artificial taboos, this beautifully illustrated book examines the subject of dying that is part of everyone's life.
