Pastoral Thanatology Program Video on Needs of the Dying

The dying have many needs that are sometimes neglected.  Physicians focus so many times on physical needs.  They see sometimes patients as success or failure only.  Dying is not failure but a process.  Properly dying is part of living.

The dying face many issues when confronted with death and beyond the basic issues of human dignity and physical comfort, they also need emotional, mental and spiritual support.  When these things are not met, then the entirety of the human person and his or her needs are neglected.  Important parts of one’s life are neglected when fear and death encompass the person and the family.  The video below explores the multiple needs of the dying.
