Hospice patients search for deceased loved ones who pay them a visit as they die away.
INTERESTING stories of dying people having final visions imply they see loved ones such as a spouse, parents, or even a pet right before they die.
They are referred to as “end-of-life visions” or “visioning” and are only visible to the sufferer. Workers at the Western Reserve Hospice told Oklahoma’s News 4 station about some of their unique experiences caring for people on the verge of death. They talked about how many of the people in their care appeared to have had experiences with deceased loved ones before they died.
One guy was visited by his loving wife Becky minutes before he breathed his final breath, according to a caregiver.
“He really dragged himself over the side rail and performed an embracing motion before laying back down and dying within minutes,” she claimed.
“He’d been expecting her to come grab him.”
In another case, a woman named Margaret told hospice staff that her son Charles had paid her a visit the day before she died.
Charles had tragically passed away two weeks previously, but hospice workers decided to keep his death a secret from her due of her health.
Margaret, who had been bedridden for weeks, suddenly dressed up one day.
“Her sister Dorothy walked in,” her caretaker Dave explained.
“’Margaret, you look lovely,’ she said. ‘What the hell is going on?’
“‘Charles came to see me, and he says he’s coming back to take me with him,’ she added.
“And she had no idea that he had died two weeks ago, and she had died the next day as well.”
Many skeptics regard visioning as nothing more than drug or disease-induced hallucinations.
However, according to hospice doctor Kevin Dieter, not every patient has visions, and those that do aren’t always clear.
“People who are dying can still have hallucinations,” he told News 4, “but they are qualitatively and quantitatively different.”
