When a person is dying, spiritual concerns often become increasingly important.
Questions arise related to life’s purpose and the impact of one’s life on others and the community. People may ask, “why is this happening to me” or “what does it mean to the world that I have lived." Some people focus on what comes after death. Spirituality is the essence of our inner being and hospice and palliative care consider spiritual care to be among the most important aspects of total care at the end of life.
February's speaker is Executive Director of the Josie Harper House, Gary George.
