With end of life care, you can't cure illness, just make the passing easier. Take pride in helping someone at the end, it's a true kindness.
Also take care of you, it can be overwhelming so make sure you monitor your own mental health!
Oh and one thing that helped me care was: even if a patient can't move or speak, still speak with them. Explain what you are doing, talk about your day. That kind of thing.
If your placement washes/dressed them after death then speaking to them like you normally would helps me. You will be supported through all of this.
