Andrew Martin's world was shattered when his life partner, Gil, was
diagnosed with AIDS. This eloquent memoir shares their love story,
unveiling the burdens and the joys of the caregiving journey. Andrew
chose to become Gil's caregiver. To prepare for what lay ahead, Andrew
enrolled in hospice volunteer training, learning lessons to guide him
through the medical, emotional, spiritual, and legal hazards of
caregiving. Now a registered nurse and leader in the field of hospice
and palliative care, Andrew has turned his personal experience into his
life's work, sharing with others the valuable lessons he learned. Andrew
shows us that when we are open to its possibilities, the loving and
selfless act of being a caregiver for someone who is at the end of life
can teach us just as much about living as about dying.
