Final Gifts

This important work by Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelley is a must-read for any hospice practitioner and/or family member of someone who is dying who would like to understand what your loved one is going through.  One of the most interesting things I learned from this book is that the dying often speak in symbolic language that their family or caregiver does not recognize.  When I worked as a hospice RN case manager, I would keep extra copies of this book on hand to give out to families.  I often refer to this book as the book Elisabeth Kubler-Ross would have written had her career in end-of-life issues lasted a bit longer.
