End of care nurse reveals the VERY specific things people see before they die
It’s a wonder to most what we see when death is near.
But one hospice nurse claims to know.
In their final weeks, people are often visited by lost loved ones and pets that give them the encouragement to cross over, according to Julie McFadden.
Ms McFadden, from Los Angeles in California, is a hospice nurse — someone who cares for terminally-ill patients near their end-of-life, keeping them comfortable in the months leading up to their death.
The 39-year-old said most of her patients report apparitions of relatives who offer them comforting words such as, ‘We’re coming to get you soon,’ or, ‘Don’t worry, we’ll help you’.

Having worked in hospice care for more than five years, Ms McFadden now shares on TikTok what she claims to have learnt about death and dying.
She has gained more than 1.2 million followers and 12.4million likes.
She revealed that dying patients see family, friends and pets who have passed away so often it is noted in educational packets given to the patient and their relatives, ‘so they understand what’s going on’, according to The Mirror.
But Ms McFadden added that medical professionals don’t know why it happens and can’t explain it.
These apparitions usually appear a month before the patient dies, she claims, and can either present in dreams or the person being able to physically see them.
The former nurse says patients will ask: ‘Do you see what I’m seeing?’
Rather than being scared of what they’re seeing, Ms McFadden claims patients often find the visits ‘comforting’.
And she doesn’t think they are hallucinations – which she claims to have seen also – as she says the patients are normally ‘pretty alert and oriented, they’re usually lucid’.
‘It’s not like they’re saying a bunch of crazy things that don’t make any sense,’ Ms McFadden added.
‘They’re usually functional and logical and questioning me, “Why am I seeing my dead mom, do you see her?”‘
Ms McFadden, who also attended acting school, shares a range of content on her TikTok – such as reassuring ‘all you sinners out there’ that she has never seen any signs that people dying are ‘going to hell, demons, fire, anything like that’.
In one video, she claims that she once had ‘a crazy vision of what I would consider an angel’ standing over a dying patient’s bed.
