This collection of poetry explores one of the most difficult and painful subjects to make sense of in writing – what it is like to care for people who are dying. Drawing on the authors' own work in hospices, the poems explore the carers' experience of supporting those who are going through the physical changes and the complex emotions that accompany ill-health and death. Encompassing a wide range of perspectives on illness, care, loss, grieving and comfort, and highlighting the centrality of the human spirit, Attending to the Fact will be an invaluable source of guidance and inspiration to professionals working with the seriously ill and dying, as well as to patients and their families.
