Highlights and topics covered:

Part One covers Specific Symptoms and Issues:

  • Pain Management:  It’s Essential
  • Decreased Food and Fluid Intake:  Aren’t They Uncomfortable?
  • Breathing Changes
  • Confusion, Agitation, and Restlessness
  • Skin Changes and Skin Care
  • Changes in Elimination
  • Socialization, Resolution, and Withdrawal

Part Two offers a Chronological Timeline, providing a gentle guideline regarding “what to expect” as the patient’s health declines:

  • The Emotions of Goodbye
  • One to Three Months Before Death
  • One to Two Weeks Before Death
  • Two Days to a Few Hours Before Death
  • When Death Has Occurred

In tandem with the chronological timeline, we gently relate the patient’s physical, emotional, and spiritual changes to the metamorphosis of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.  Using nature metaphors allows a gentle connection to all backgrounds, cultures, and religions.
