Virginia L Seno of the Esse Institute here proposes three ways of addressing a person who is dying. Here they are in stark outline:
- Ask the question,“What is most important to you right now?”
- Do what needs doing
- Be quiet and open-minded. Be present. Be available. Be willing to ask and hear and do.
