“It happens most of the time at the end of life, but don’t kid yourself. It’s called ‘visualization’ and it’s usually very comforting to the person. It’s never scary: if they’re scared, it’s probably delusions or paranoia, not visions.”asserts and spreads The Mirror.

Julie says that people don’t talk about it much, but it is very common and more than half of the people she cared for have experienced it.

Julie, who works with people of all ages with life-limiting conditions, said the visions usually occur around one month before the person dies.
However, he clarifies, if a person experiences it, it is not an indicator that they are experiencing psychosis or that they have low oxygen: “He is conscious and lucid.”
