About the Presenter
Since becoming a hospice nurse in 1981, Maggie Callanan has studied, taught and written about death and dying. This includes the unique and symbolic communication of the dying, which is often labeled as “confused language” and consequently often ignored by professional and family caregivers. Addressing medical, personal, emotional and spiritual aspects of life’s final journey, Maggie delivers practical, no-nonsense answers to difficult questions tempered by humor, wisdom and compassion. She is the co-author of “Final Gifts: Understanding the Special Awareness Needs and Communication of the Dying” and author of “Final Journeys: A Practical Guide to Care and Comfort at the End of Life.”
