A practical guide to understanding the dying process
Crossing the Creek is a book for the dying, caregivers, clinicians, family members and friends.
Crossing the Creek helps people understand the dying process i.e. what is happening, and why. We wonder about death; what it is and what it will do to us… In his book, Michael Holmes gives a general description of what we can expect to encounter during the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual processes that dying people undergo as they transition from life into death, in an understandable and helpful way.
Michael Holmes, formerly committed caregiver and hospice nurse, doesn’t pull punches about the dying process, but he still conveys a sense of acceptance, faith and compassion which has brought comfort to many people. In his words: “The dying process is about life…it teaches us how to live”. Many readers testify to the fact that the reading of this book has decreased anxiety and increased their understanding of the dying process. Read more
