good life, good death, good grief

What actually happens when someone is dying?

People who have survived a near-death experience tell very different stories about their experience of being ‘dead’. Although many describe moving towards a bright light and a welcoming environment which they find hard to resist, others describe sinking or floating into nothingness.

In a person’s last weeks of life, changes occur in their body. It is possible to learn about these changes and grow an understanding of the process of dying and what to expect.

The changes that occur within someone’s body will depend on the type of illness they have and which parts of the body it affects. When death is due to a terminal illness, it is common for people to get gradually weaker and more tired over several weeks or months.
