Yes. However, it can be administered in danger of death or in a dangerous situation, even when someone is not dying, such a prior to an operation. And the father brings out that because people think the recipient of the sacrament has to be on the verge of death, they often wait too late to ask for the priest. This is a good article for anyone with aged or ill loved ones to read. And we should make sure our own families understand this so that we are not accidentally denied the grace of this sacrament.

I asked for the Anointing of the Sick twice. Each before a major surgery. My priest was very happy to do it. (We never know what can happen on the operating table!)
