Final gifts : understanding the special awareness, needs, and communications of the dying

by Callanan, Maggie|Kelley, Patricia

Bantam Books, Milsons Point, NSW, 1992

For more than a decade hospice nurses Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelley have tended the terminally ill. Now, in this moving and compassionate book, they share their intimate experiences with patients at the edge of life. Through these stories you'll come to appreciate the near-miraculous ways in which the dying communicate their needs, reveal their feelings, and even choreograph their own final moments; you'll gain new insight into the leave-taking process; and in the end you'll discover the gifts of wisdom, faith and love, that the dying leave for us to share.
