Full “Last Rites” is Confession, Anointing of the Sick, and Communion. And the Plenary Indulgence for the Dying is not to be sneezed at!

It used to be called Extreme Unction and “Last Rites” in English.
Now it’s “Anointing of the Sick”. In my parish, there is no distinction between what used to be “Extreme Unction” and “Anointing of the Sick” now.
Confession and Communion are also administered whether a person is dying or sick, so the Plenary Indulgence holds for a sick OR dying person.
Sins are forgiven in the Annointing of the Sick. That’s why it must be administered by a priest. Have you ever received it or stood by someone who received it to support them in their illness or scheduled surgery.
I have. It is very moving.
