Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 97. Reviews the book, Last Touch: Preparing for a Parent's Death by Marilyn R. Becker (1992). Written in reaction to the author's experience of her father's death, this book guides readers through many of the journeys one makes as a parent becomes ill and receives a fatal diagnosis, and the process of death begins. Becker describes, among other topics, how to take care of yourself while you are caring for your ill parent who may need round-the-clock care, how to evaluate nursing homes, hospitals, and hospice programs, and how to proceed with funeral arrangements and other practical matters once death has occurred.
