You will be strengthened and encouraged as you learn to be there for another in the last few days of life. I will give you ideas to help a loved one to feel safe, comforted and valued even when hope is gone. When the body is no longer able to support life, you will have resources to guide through a safe and gentle release. As we are able to be there for another we gain a deep appreciation for the dignity and nobility of life.

This is how I come to the bedside
To comfort and care in last hours of life
I know exactly how to walk into the room when it is closed
when nurses say, “Nothing more to do, she is dying.
