Your Health is Your Choice with Sara Troy and her guest Jeff Dawson, on air from September 25th
Being a caregiver for someone you love who is dying is a profound and emotionally challenging experience. It involves not only physical care but also a deep emotional and spiritual connection. Here, we’ll explore the gifts of memories, perceptions, and the connections of the soul and spirit when crossing over from those who are dying and the deceased.
- Memories and Shared Moments: As a caregiver, you have the unique opportunity to create and cherish lasting memories with your loved one. These memories become treasures that you can hold onto long after they have passed. The simple act of being present, listening, and sharing stories can bring comfort and joy to both you and the person you’re caring for.
- Perceptions of Life’s Meaning: When someone is nearing the end of their life, they often reflect on the meaning and purpose of their existence. As a caregiver, you can engage in deep conversations that allow your loved one to explore their life’s journey, accomplishments, regrets, and hopes. These discussions can bring clarity and a sense of closure.
- Spiritual Connections: Many people find solace in spirituality when facing the end of life. Caregivers can provide support by facilitating spiritual practices, whether through prayer, meditation, or connecting with religious or philosophical beliefs. This can help your loved one find peace and transcendence in their final days.
- Soulful Bond: Caregiving is an act of love that transcends the physical realm. The bond you share with your loved one deepens as you accompany them on their journey. You become witnesses to their vulnerability, strength, and courage. This soulful connection can bring immense comfort and reassurance to both you and your loved one.
- Crossing Over and Legacy: As your loved one approaches the end of life, there may be moments of transition and crossing over. These can be deeply spiritual experiences filled with profound insights and connections to the unknown. Caregivers often report feeling the presence of their loved ones even after they have passed, suggesting a continuation of the soul’s journey.
- Grief and Healing: After your loved one has passed away, the memories, perceptions, and spiritual connections you shared can be a source of healing. While grief is a natural part of the process, these gifts can provide solace and help you navigate the complex emotions that accompany loss.
Being a caregiver during the end-of-life journey is both a challenging and rewarding experience. It allows you to give the gift of love, compassion, and companionship to someone you care deeply about. The memories, perceptions, and spiritual connections forged during this time are precious and enduring, providing comfort and support as you and your loved one navigate the profound transition from life to whatever lies beyond.

Jeff says “I spent twenty-five years in the wonderful world of road construction. Back surgery in 2010 put the skids on that career. My body couldn’t handle the rigors of twelve to sixteen-hour days, six to seven days a week anymore. As I convalesced, licking my wounds, I wondered what to do next. Not being out in the sun getting baked, or dodging traffic, was going to be a hard act to follow. Seriously, what else did I know? An article in the Dallas Morning News caught my eye. It was about being a professional speaker. Hmm? That sounds interesting. Becoming mobile again, I took a seat in front of a blank monitor, pondering what to write”.
Let’s start with something I know: my life. The first work is titled “God’s Plan: A Glimpse Into One’s Life.” I re-titled it six months later to “Why Did Everything Happen?” This is a look back at the last twenty-five years of my life and how the death of my partner, father and true love affected my life. I was amazed at the revelations.
