 Full Description: 
End-of-life Care: Bridging Disability And Aging With Person Centered Care is about end of life care. The book is centered around two introductory papers, one of which was written by a well known and respected advocate for people with disabilities and concerns his son who had a cognitive disability. The other was written by a well known theologian coming from the perspective of having a father with Alzheimer's disease.

The book also contains chapters that are responses to these two papers from experts in the field. Other chapters have other personal stories and describe issues regarding end of life issues for people with disabilities.

Both of the two central papers are also in journals, and the papers can be purchased separately through those journals.
