I work as a chaplain with people with intellectual disability in a church based agency which provides lifestyle support for people who have moved from institutions to community living. In my work I support people who are dying and their carers. This presentation is a reflection on the spiritual journey of a man dying from lung cancer and the new life that he discovered. As he explored the spiritual questions of identity and connectedness he discovered that, rather than being alone in the world, he had a family who cared about him. Implications for research with respect to informed decision making and appropriate support will be explored.
