About Heart in Hand Books


Heart in Hand Books was established in 2016 to help those supporting someone through
their end of life journey. The first book, Someone I Love is Dying, provides practical advice
on what to think about and work through before and after the death of a loved one.

End of life journey

It can be overwhelming to find out that someone you love has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Someone I Love is Dying offers a roadmap for supporting a loved one through their end of life journey. Part I of the book focuses on the most important things in the time that remains after a loved one has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Part II of the book addresses what happens after a loved one dies.

Rich in examples and practical advice, Someone I Love is Dying provides:

  • Information on a wide range of topics such as talking with healthcare professionals, identifying sources of financial assistance, clarifying your loved one’s final wishes and directives, and taking the time to preserve memories;
  • Examples, checklists and forms to walk you through the decisions and tasks that need to be addressed including caring for the body, planning a funeral, dealing with grief and executing a will; and,
  • Practical suggestions for taking care of yourself to help you support and care for your loved one.
