"I want to do the right thing. She was a wonderful mother, and deserves only that." This common refrain comes from children of aged, ill parents. Families struggle with decisions, confronting the inevitable while providing parents with love and care. Modern medicine often offers endless treatments-but illnesses eventually progress and the focus must ultimately shift to end-of-life care. Moments that Matter: Cases in Ethical Eldercare reflects Dr. Gordon's extensive experience with families struggling with poignant and difficult decisions. "Caring effectively and lovingly for the elders in our families can present daunting dilemmas. Moments that Matter: Cases in Ethical Eldercare provides invaluable information and insights for all concerned. Dr. Michael Gordon has given us a timely and timeless gift with this book." -Steven R. Sabat, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Georgetown University "Dr. Gordon has written a thoughtful and indispensible guide to aid families facing difficult choices in caring for aging family members. There is no other single resource that so deftly and expertly draws together the necessary elements to navigate this phase of the life course." -Ross Upshur, M.D., Director, Joint Centre for Bioethics, University of Toronto "Drawing on a rich supply of vignettes from his vast clinical experience, Dr. Michael Gordon brings good advice and trenchant analysis to families caring for older relatives. Moments that Matter: Cases in Ethical Eldercare is informative, practical, and compassionate-everything that struggling caregivers need." -Muriel R. Gillick, M.D., Professor of Population Medicine, Harvard Medical School
