2520 - Coming To Terms With Illness, Aging and Death
Atul Gawande, a practicing surgeon and Harvard professor has written a deeply moving, insightful and personal story that is changing medicine and lives. Here is the book we all need to read, ponder and discuss—especially those who are of OLLI age. Being Mortal, Medicine and What Matters in the End, winner of numerous awards, is a New York Times bestseller offering clear-sighted, helpful solutions to caring for the elderly, what makes life worth living, and the tension between length and quality of life. Our mortality is a serious subject. One we all face. But we shy away from thinking and talking about it. Living a successful life all the way to the end is not so scary when we talk about it together. Using Being Mortal as our base for facilitated discussion, we will deal with aging, illness and death in life-affirming, supportive conversation with others. Facilitated Discussion
