What does it feel like to die?

Living in the dementia world you cannot escape thinking about death. Regularly, you read online about the end if life experience of people with dementia and their carers.  Similarly, people you meet at the various activities you attend disappear from time to time and months or sometimes weeks later we hear of their passing.

And everyone who cares for a person with dementia knows that they are likely to have to face the death of the person they are keeping alive, unless their own death comes first.

I came across this interesting article which seems to offer some comfort for those who believe in life after death but also to those who would find the inevitability of their own death easier to accept if there was a fair chance that it could be painless, peaceful and, even, uplifting.
