When asked the following question, Adrian Allotey, Owner of You Are Not Alone Elder Care LLC and Certified End of Life Doula, responded as such.
Q: What’s the difference between a “good” passing and a “bad” passing?
A: I have never personally witnessed a bad passing. I believe the universe gives attention to each passing and what is supposed to happen happens. I spend time supporting individuals in articulating what they would like for the passing to be. Whether they articulate it in their mind, on paper or vocally, I believe words have power and the universe responds to their requests.
I do believe that a good passing is one in which people honor that a person is still living until their last breath by respecting their end of life requests and who they are in that moment.
