The person may be feeling angry, scared, guilty or confused.
A chaplain or spiritual care co-ordinator is trained to help people who are experiencing such feelings. They can provide support for the person who is dying and those who are important to them, whether or not they hold a religious belief.
If the person does have religious beliefs, they can also receive a visit from their local faith leader.
A counsellor, social worker or psychologist, as well as a nurse, may also be able to offer support.
