Illness and the dying process are among the most painful things that people experience. Furthermore, our culture’s tremendous fear of death keeps people from accessing the profound and fulfilling aspects available in these experiences.Many caregivers wish to give those they are caring for hope and peace; they want to ask them questions that help them reflect on the meaning in their lives and the people that they love. Patients, too, want this. Yet the pressures of illness and the dying process make it extremely difficult to raise these topics. As a result, sick and dying people often contemplate their lives in isolation and never find the full peace and healing that they could have.
Patients and caregivers need a vehicle that helps them reflect on what matters most with greater ease. While the internet has proven somewhat useful for this by helping people connect online, current internet spaces do not provide the full potential of service that they could.
What Matters Now fills this gap.
