The book's greatest strengths are in raising awareness and stimulating debate rather than offering solutions ... It will be valuable for all those involved with care-homes in either a practice or a policy capacity. Ageing and Society, Vol 24, Issue 1 This book should be essential reading for all registered managers. I believe that, by giving much needed clarity to the subject, it could make a real difference to the care offered at the end of life. Community Care This book provides a clear picture of the benefits of introducing palliative care in residential and nursing homes, as well as the numerous steps that need to be taken to achieve it. It would be of value to any palliative care service that deals with residential care facilities and nursing homes, and should be required reading for anyone managing such a facility. IAHPC Website Edited by respected experts, this book is intended for carers who have contact with dying people. It is a welcome addition to the palliative care literature. Journal of Advanced Nursing, Vol 45, 2
