Natural Death

Some people feel strongly that they only want a death that occurs as a natural part of life, meaning no hastening or prolonging of the dying process in any way.  This is common in many cultures and as one more valid choice at the end of life, we support that as we can.

As one cultural example, here is a quote from, an Insight Meditation practitioner of the Buddhist tradition:

“… of the main goals in dying is to die with as much awareness as possible and in a wholesome state of mind. Maintaining mindfulness while dying is considered a wholesome activity of mind, so one should continue one’s mindfulness practice as long as possible while dying.”  

In any such situation, hospice care is still a good idea for comfort care.  But supporting people and their families and specific cultural or religious foundations  is something EOLCCA Volunteers can do

“Thank you for your help through this process. We found comfort in our phone call with you and were able to connect with a hospice company who will honor my mom's wishes to exercise MAID if need be. My mom feels a sense of relief knowing that she has options and control over her treatment. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and thank you from my parents.” SC
