Final Gifts

This book was written by hospice nurses, Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelley.  In my mind, this is the book that Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, a member of my dream team and mentor, would have loved to have written.  It is interesting and informative--a must-read for all hospice professionals and for lay persons going through the dying process with a loved one.

In addition to 'Final Gifts', Maggie recently wrote another book, 'Final Journeys' (2009), that takes the reader through the weeks and months before a death, rather than days/hours. For anyone going through this difficult journey, it is a MUST READ. I've sent it to countless people and they are incredibly grateful, as I was, to have this gem of a book while working through a gut-wrenching time. Maggie is an inspiration. If you ever have the chance to hear her speak, go! It is a gift.
