Final Gifts by Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelley
Final Gifts: Understanding the Special Awareness, Needs, and Communications of the Dying, Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelley. New York: Simon & Schuster, 2012. e-book, 188 pps.
I know that at least some of the folks I knew when they were dying were aware that death was nearby. Final Gifts-- written by two hospice nurses-- addresses nearing death awareness [NDA], what a dying patient might need, and how the dying communicate with specific examples.
sapphoq reviews says: I highly recommend this book along with Maggie Callanan's earlier book Final Journeys to anyone who has a loved one who is dying.
