Because We Care

Because We Care

 IN THE FINAL HOURS

Those of us who choose to stay by the sides of those who are dying should be alert for signs that death is approaching. In the weeks and days leading up to death, terminally ill patients are likely to sleep more, eat less, lose strength, become less social, become more confused, experience more pain, and exhibit dropping body temperature and other changes in their vital signs. During the final hours, it will become increasingly more evident that their heart rate will decrease, as their heart and other organs begin to shut down. At this time, it is important that the dying be made to feel as comfortable as possible. Conversation should be kept up until the last possible moment.

It’s important to take the time to acknowledge the uniqueness of the deceased. Not just for them, but for you. It affirms the relationship and leads to healing after loss. Honoring a life is truly an act of love, for the both of you. To learn more, please call 609-737-2900. Our experienced and professional staff is here to guide you through the creation of a service that reflects your values, your preferences, and your loved one’s individual life story. We are located at 21 North Main St. Continuous Family Service Since 1881.
