Final Gifts


When my mom entered hospice, a dear friend recommended that I read Final Gifts.  Several of the stories proved spot-on with experiences we faced and brought hope and comfort as she approached the end of her life. I recommend it to family members and caregivers of the terminally ill.


From the back cover:

“In this moving and compassionate book hospice nurses Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelley share their intimate experiences with patients at the end of life, drawn from more than twenty years experience tending the terminally ill.

Throughout their stories, we come to appreciate the near-miraculous ways in which the dying communicate their needs, reveal their feelings, and even choreograph their own final moments; we also discover the gifts — of wisdom, faith, and love — that the dying leave for the living to share.

Filled with practical advice on responding to the requests of the dying and helping them prepare emotionally and spiritually for death, Final Gifts shows how we can help the dying person live fully to the very end.”
