The Final Journey
The Final Journey–Complete Hospice Care for Departing Vaishnavas

(Torchlight Publishing) by Susan Pattinson, R.N., CHPN (Sangita Devi Dasi).


Increasingly, we hear about members of our Krishna consciousness movement needing end-of-life care when diagnosed with an incurable illness. Aged devotees will inevitably require this care.. Who among us will not eventually be in need of this service? Encouraging us to embrace this situation as an expanding opportunity to serve Vaishnavas, Sangita Dasi integrates the knowledge of hospice care for the dying with the spiritual wisdom of Krishna consciousness as taught by her spiritual teacher, His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada. Since its first edition was released almost two decades ago, The Final Journey–Complete Hospice Care for Departing Vaishnavas, has become the "End-of-Life handbook and guide” for Vaishnavas around the world.

In addition, it has long been “mandatory reading” for the nursing staff at a Catholic-based, in-patient hospice facility on the west coast of the United States. Over the years, The Final Journey has guided thousands of family caregivers and their terminally ill loved ones when faced with end-of-life decisions regarding treatment, medications, and comfort care options. No matter who you are caring for and what his or her spiritual beliefs may be, this Updated, 2nd Edition of The Final Journey will assist you in becoming an exemplary caregiver.
