Annie Brown

Author Annie Brownabout this book: Many times as a society we fail to make hard choices. We rather place hard choices in our subconscious and take the stance of--- if the choices do not bother me I will not bother them. However life choices have a way of slowly walking us down and many times it is too late for us to take an active part in the end of life decision making. So it is with a terminal illness. We never know who will receive devastating news that a person only has six month or less to live if the disease process follows the normal progression according to scientific evidence. "My Little People" was written to introduce people to a helping resource called hospice. The book is educational in nature and it tells the what, who, when, and where of services rendered to hospice appropriate individuals. The inspiration for the title came from a hospice patient who I had the pleasure of caring for. In hindsight, I would have loved for my mother to have spent her last days at home instead of a hospital but I did not know about hospice. The motivation for writing is to help educate others about the invaluable services that are provided to a patient and their families at one of the most critical times in their life after being diagnosed with a terminal illness. Working with hospice has brought me such a wealth of knowledge, understanding, and thankfulness and I desire to leave a legacy of the blessings that hospice can bring to a social worker while touching the lives of patients and families.
