My feature on AfterlifeTV with Bob Olson

Late last month, I was featured on Bob Olson’s “AfterlifeTV” internet show. We spent the hour discussing Finding Peace and Meaning in Death and Bereavement. I’m flattered that the show already has nearly 3,000 views on YouTube, and I hope you might have time to take a look for yourself. As always, feel free to contact me with any questions that come up during the show!

Presentation at the Decatur Book Festival

I will be speaking about my book, No One Has To Die Alone: Preparing for a Meaningful Death, at the Decatur Book Festival on Saturday, Sept. 1 at 10 a.m.  The Decatur Book Festival is the largest independent book festival in the country. My goal is to bring hope and inspiration about care at the end of life, so we accept the great privilege of being present for our loved ones through illness, ageing, or decline. I plan to teach skills, attitudes, and perspectives so you know that you can make a difference, and you can intervene to lessen pain, anxiety, and fear for everyone.  Please join me in Decatur or online as I share tips, tools, and skills.  See more at www.decaturbookfestival.com

My new book “No One Has to Die Alone” is now available

No One Has to Die Alone by Dr. Lani Leary

The experience of caring for a loved one through terminal illness and eventual loss can be incredibly isolating and emotionally overwhelming. No One Has To Die Alone offers accessible insights, practical tools, and personal stories to provide a sense of community, profound relief, and deep meaning for both caregiver and patient through illness, death, and bereavement.

The first half of No One Has To Die Alone focuses on caregiving, while the second half focuses on the grieving process, including an entire chapter on how to compassionately support the unique needs of children through the grieving process. Each chapter is written to stand alone, allowing readers to reference any chapter and apply that information to their unique challenge.
