As the moment approaches, many of us have fear of dying alone. But there are forces in the current culture, through the Death Awareness Movement, that are addressing this concern. In addition to Sacred Dying Foundation, Hospice and the No One Dies Alone (NODA) program are examples of organizations and programs that believe in a continuum of care for the dying and for their survivors.
When a loved-one dies but you are unable to be there, grief bereavement counseling can help you heal. The above-referenced organizations know the true meaning of bereavement and understand that in addition to assisting the dying, their work helps bereaved survivors as well: through the knowledge that their loved-ones were compassionately accompanied in their journey.
