Publisher's Description

In this moving and compassionate classic—now updated with new material from the authors—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.

Through 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.

    This book gives you a clear understanding of the dying and their gifts to you. It helped me get through my dad's suffering and death, not only what I was to expect but how to deal with situations that come up, and many times what he was trying to communicate to us. This book will change how you view death and dying. Everyone in the health field should read it--especially nurses/doctors.
