Description
Being Mortal: by Atul Gawande | A 15-minute Key Takeaways & Analysis Preview: Being Mortal, written by Atul Gawande, brings to light an array of concepts involving death, mortality, aging, and terminal illness. Gawande includes extensive research and chronicles the stories of his patients, other doctors' patients, and his own family members. The resulting book informs readers about many circumstances and scenarios that can help people find the best route through their or their family members' final days, months, or years... Key Takeaways Nursing homes were not created to assist the elderly with their dependency on others or provide a better option than poorhouses. They were created to clear out hospital beds. Assisted living arose from the need for an alternative to nursing homes that could give patients more independence and control over their lives. At the end of their lives, most people want more than to merely survive, which is where medical institutions, nursing homes, and assisted living can fall flat. People need to ask themselves what would make life worth living when they are ill, old, frail, or dependent on others for daily care. PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.
