Maggie Callanan, R.N., has specialized in the care of the dying since 1981. She lectures widely to lay and professional audiences on death and dying, bereavement, and hospice care. Maggie is the author of Final Journeys and co-author of Final Gifts. She lives on the New England coast.

Patricia Kelley has worked in hospice care since 1978. She formerly held positions as Clinical Director of Montgomery Hospice in Maryland and as Director of Health Systems Leadership at the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. She now works as a national and international consultant providing education and training on issues relating to hospice and palliative care. Patricia is also the author of Companion to Grief: Finding Consolation When Someone You Love Has Died.
Five years after its first publication, with more than 150,000 copies in print, Final Gifts has become a classic. 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.

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.

  • Final Gifts Helps Immensely with Dying Friends

    A friend lent me this book after she lost her adult son to cancer. When I finally got over my reluctance to read it, I was amazed at how fascinating this collection of personal stories are. Written by two hospice nurses, their patients have taught them much about the many different ways that dying people want to communicate. The important lesson for me is that they want to talk about death as they experience what the authors call "nearing death awareness." Putting the dying person off with, "Oh, you'll outlive me," leaves them lonely and exerting effort to protect their caregivers' feelings. They need to talk, and we need to recognize their sometimes indirect ways of bringing up the subject. And we must never tell them that they are not visiting with loved ones who have already passed away. Two of the patients recognized loved ones visiting them "from the other side" who had died, unbeknownst to them. They had not been told for fear of upsetting them. The patient's response was, "What are you doing here?" This book has reassured me that death can be kind and serene, if the surrounding family and friends are loving and supportive.
