The end of life is a very difficult time for the dying person and their family. It can also be challenging for those who are caring for them. Here are 12 important considerations to help you care for your clients in their final days:
1) Understand that death is an inevitable part of life, but it is not something to fear.
2) Respect the client’s wishes and values about death.
3) Keep communication open with family members so they know what to expect as the end approaches (don’t assume that they know).
4) Assist with practical arrangements such as funeral planning, finances, etc., if possible.
5) Be mindful of how much social contact there will be during the final days and weeks.
Take good care of yourself so you can continue to take good care of your clients. “Caring for the Dying:
