Dr. Atul Guwande’s book “Being Mortal” rampantly became a best seller in 2014. Kathy Benson, LICSW at Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice, will lead a conversation about the book’s examination of the process of aging and dying.  Drawing on his own experiences observing terminally ill patients, Dr. Guwande offers a timely account of how modern Americans cope with decline and mortality.  The doctor writes abut the importance and value of physicians to honor their patients wishes and choices.  Please attempt to read or listen to the book before this discussion, but there is an audio visual portion as part of this discussion.  Whether you have a chance to read or finish the book, call the COA 978-318-3020 to sign up, refreshments will be provided by Nashoba Nursing & Hospice.
