Caring for someone during the last few weeks and days of their life can be a worrying and difficult time for family and friends. Many different feelings and emotions will arise. However, the day to day matters of life still need to be managed and there are often many other things to consider and prepare for. Everybody knows that death is an inevitable part of life. Death, as the ultimate human mystery, is often feared but for most people it is the process of dying that they are more afraid of.
Those caring for the dying have similar fears and they often feel helpless and vulnerable in the face of death. For most carers, it may be their first time being close to a dying person. They may never have seen anyone go through the dying process before and are uncertain of what will happen. No one can accurately predict the precise time of death, and this leads to levels of uncertainty that can cause distress and difficulty for individuals and families. Being prepared for what may happen can make it a little easier to cope with the situation.
This workshop will help you answer the following questions:
1) What happens when someone is dying?
2) What can you do to help?
3) Where can you turn to for help if you are concerned about someone who is dying?
