Deborah Duda was terrified of death , until she met Mother Teresa. While visiting Calcutta, Duda called Mother and visited her at the Sisters of Charity Convent in the hopes of overcoming her phobia of death. When she asked to stay and help her care for the dying, Mother Teresa replied, No my child go home there is sadness and suffering right around you at home. She did, a therapist for the terminally ill and their families for over 30 years, Duda provides an enlightening guide to caring for a terminally ill relative or friend in the fourth edition of her acclaimed book, "Coming Home: A Practical and Compassionate Guide to Caring for a Dying Loved One". A step-­by-­step guide to the physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of serving as a caregiver, previous editions of Coming Home have been endorsed by Mother Teresa herself. Duda grew up amidst the aftermath of World War II in Surrey, England. Inspired to help counsel the dying and their families after meeting Mother Teresa. Participating in the home deaths of her mother, father, two close friends and many others, Duda has traveled internationally giving lectures and workshops on caregiving and what dying can teach us about living joyfully, has been used to train hospice workers for decades.
