Course Six: Understanding the Final Phase of Dying (HC006)

This course has been created to help you to answer some difficult questions that you may have about the dying process. It is important to remember that just as people are unique, so too is their death. It is almost impossible to tell you the exact time or manner in which a person will die. However, regardless of the illness, there are several similar physical symptoms and emotional changes likely to occur as death approaches.
