We are governed by the fact that death and dying is something we are all going to face

We are governed by the fact that death and dying is something we are all going to face. Be it the death of loved ones, or our own death. With that brings the fear and anxiety, the unknown territory. Leaving loved ones behind or losing loved ones gives panic to how do you cope emotions. So it’s just as important to value the lives of the dying during death and dying as it is to look after people at any age of stage in life. Hopefully I have managed to show that quality care and skilled communication can go a long way to providing a ‘good death’, showing that the need to respect and listen to those dying and their family members should be first and foremost on the care list. To do this communication needs to be effective, honest and open, and appropriate to the situation. The communication of understanding the person, having good listening skills and using professional crafts provide the effective communication needed. People need to be treated with respect and dignity and given choices, to allow them to maintain the control as much as possible during their death to help with the anxiety and fear that ultimately surrounds death and dying.
