“It’s a complicated truth: we all fear dying, and we all fear it in different ways, according to our individual circumstances and life experiences.

“…so often, dying people and their families remain unprepared because our fear about death has become a fear about even mentioning dying.

My life in palliative care has shown me that the process of dying is made less frightening and more peaceful, the better prepared we are. Knowing what to expect, and knowing what our dear ones will see as we die, helps people to plan, to speak to each other openly and honestly, and to relax. It also helps people to enjoy each day as it arises, instead of fearing a sudden and unexpected onset of dying, because usually, death approaches us gradually.”
