Synopsis:

For more than two decades, hospice nurse Maggie Callanan has tended to the terminally ill and been a cornerstone of support for their loved ones. Now the coauthor of the classic bestseller FINAL GIFTS passes along the lessons she has learned from the experts--her patients. Here is the guide we all need to understanding the special needs of the dying and those who care for them.In her work with thousands of families, Maggie Callanan has witnessed the tears, the love--and the confusion and conflict--this final passage can evoke. Now, with honesty, compassion, and even humor, she empowers patients and their families to write the last chapter of their lives with less fear, less pain, and more control--so that all involved can focus their energies on creating the best possible ending.From supporting a husband or wife faced with the loss of a spouse, to helping a dying mother prepare her children to carry on without her, Callanan's poignant stories illustrate new ways to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges of this difficult and precious time. She brings welcome clarity to medical and ethical concerns, explaining what to expect at every stage. Each brief chapter also conveys a home truth about making crucial treatment decisions, supporting the patient's dignity and individuality, and lightening the burden on caregivers.FINAL JOURNEYS is designed to be your companion, resource, and advocate. From diagnosis through the final hours, it will help you keep the lines of communication open, get the help you need, and create the peaceful end we all hope for.
