About the Author:

Kim West has a PhD in Clinical Pastoral Counseling and an M.Div in Counseling and Family.






My thoughts: My grandma passed away a couple of years ago.  She was living in a nursing home, so we didn’t have the worries of a decision of either home-care or hospice.

If I were to have a family member who needed hospice care, Peaceful Passage would definitely be the go-to resource book I would read and follow.  It had everything laid out in an easy to follow format.

I liked the workbook and journal being integrated into each chapter.  One of the best parts of the book were excerpts from her journal.  It was helpful to learn about her experiences, so I have an idea of what I may experience in the future.

This book is an excellent resource for those with elderly people in their family.  I highly recommend this book.  I am going to pass on this book to a local church where I hope some members can use it.
