Mary Thompson
Nature Gave Us Butterflies

This book is beautifully designed and written. It offers a soft visual, and it contains all the information that is needed for the patient or the family. I would highly recommend it for medical students, as they often do not receive the education that this book can provide. Additionally, it is essential for those facing end of life.

Mary, thank you so much for your detailed review. Taking the time to write the review will help others decide about what they need in end-of-life materials, and that helps us achieve our mission daily. Again, thank you so much!

Brief, but very helpful

The hospice my mom utilized gave us a copy of this booklet. I liked it so much, I got copies for my dad and aunt to read. It helped us navigate through our mom's last days and gave us a lot of comfort.

Also, my dad's not a big reader-this was the perfect length and level for engagement.

Thank you so much for sharing your positive experience with our booklet, and for letting others know what why it worked for you and your family. This will help others when they are searching for the right materials. I'm so glad it was helpful for you!

Affectionately known as the hospice "butterfly book," Nature Gave Us Butterflies helps the caregiver understand pain management, breathing changes, confusion, agitation, skin changes, changes in elimination, socialization, withdrawal, and other important topics. The author gently relates the patient’s changes to the metamorphosis of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly, using nature metaphors to support the retention of information during an overwhelming time.

Highlights and topics covered:

Part One covers Specific Symptoms and Issues:

  • Pain Management:  It’s Essential
  • Decreased Food and Fluid Intake:  Aren’t They Uncomfortable?
  • Breathing Changes
  • Confusion, Agitation, and Restlessness
  • Skin Changes and Skin Care
  • Changes in Elimination
  • Socialization, Resolution, and Withdrawal

Part Two offers a Chronological Timeline, providing a gentle guideline regarding “what to expect” as the patient’s health declines:

  • The Emotions of Goodbye
  • One to Three Months Before Death
  • One to Two Weeks Before Death
  • Two Days to a Few Hours Before Death
  • When Death Has Occurred
  • In tandem with the chronological timeline, we gently relate the patient’s physical, emotional, and spiritual changes to the metamorphosis of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.  Using nature metaphors allows the hospice professional gently educate and connect to all backgrounds, cultures, and religions.
