In this article the author brings together her perspective as a former hospice chaplain and now spiritual director to help others think about the place of spirituality in the care of the dying. She explores some of the spiritual needs of dying people and considers what supports caregivers need to perform this sacred work. Although much work with the dying is with elders, this article addresses the human experience of the dying process, at whatever age it may come.
