Dying is a complex experience for the dying person and their family, friends, and carers, that involves all aspects of what it means to be human: physical, mental, and spiritual. The author describes different types of Nearing Death Awareness (NDA), including visions, dreams, and symbolic language, and offers practical guidance for family and carers of the dying about how to respond appropriately and supportively to NDA behavior.
