A death is imminent

Accompanying a person at the end of life is a unique and demanding experience for the caregiver. Every moment of clarity is precious and it’s natural to want to preserve an atmosphere of peace around your loved one.

If the person did not make pre-arrangements, you can plan ahead for the next step. Or perhaps you simply need reassurance about what will happen afterwards? That's what we're here for.
