ABODE International Book Club and Study Group
Wine Tasting

ABODE’s Book Club and Study Group starts Tuesday, Jan. 23! Join us 6:30-7:30 pm Central, via Zoom. We’ll read and discuss the bestselling Final Gifts: Understanding the Special Awareness, Needs, and Communications of the Dying.

We’ll meet on Zoom for 4 Tuesdays. Interested in joining in? We’d love to have you with us! Please email info@abodehome.org and we’ll send you the Zoom link.

In this moving and compassionate classic – now updated with new material from the authors – hospice nurses Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelley share their intimate experiences with patients at the end of life, drawn from more than 20 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 those who are dying live fully to the very end.
