This is a gentle guide for family caregivers during the vigil with a dying loved one. In it you will find suggestions for ways to be as present as possible physically, emotionally, and spiritually during the dying process. Very wholistic, it includes practical and medical information, as well as readings, prayers from several spiritual beliefs, songs and poems, tools for creating a sacred space, and suggestions for including children in the dying experience.
We think this booklet is a wonderful resource for professionals and families to help make the vigil experience more meaningful, and bring resolution, comfort, and peace to both the dying and their loved ones.
