Book of the Month: October 2018

Hey all!

For this month’s book, I’m going to go with my gut that the rest of the book is as good as the first half.  Being Mortal by Atul Gawande has been a revelation for me.  The easy to understand, though at times uncomfortable conversations Gawande delves into are things my mind hasn’t readily jumped to. But the power and importance of this book has not been lost on me.  Whether you yourself are creeping into old age or have a loved one who is, the contents of this book can change your perspective on aging and elder care.

As Gawande details, our world and how the medical world treats and handles the elderly has changed drastically in the last 50 years, but even greater change must take place.

A #1 NY Times best seller, this book should absolutely be on your shelf if it isn’t already.
