death end of life preparation attitudes at late late age
Death & End of Life PreparationAttitudes at Late Late Age
  • Know the psycho-social aspects of Death among the elderly
    • Elder death touches everyone at some time
    • Counselors often serve as
      • Containers of difficult or awkward feelings
      • The neutral party who can raise important topics
  • Theorists and researchers consider
    • Awareness (insight)
    • Increasing certainty in a culture that denies it
    • Temporal nearness (salience)
    • Qualitative nature of preparedness (developmental tasks)
      • Cultural definitions of a “good death”

Beth Lee

death end of life preparation talking about death
Death & End of Life PreparationTalking about Death
  • Elderly people think and talk readily about death
    • Non-institutionalized more frequently
    • Institutionalized, less opportunity
      • “the belief that discussing death creates a negative mental framework and self-image that may interfere with the best possible client care” (Leif, 1982)
  • More thinking and talking than preparedness
    • 74% have a will, but only 53% & 65% spoke to family & friends about end of life wishes

Schrader, Nelson, & Eidsness (2009)

Beth Lee

death end of life preparation death anxiety
Death & End of Life Preparation Death Anxiety
  • Existential Definition
    • Although the physicality of death destroys us, it is the idea of death that saves us (Yalom, 1980)
    • Death is the condition that makes it possible for us to live in an authentic fashion (Heidegger, 1926)
      • By allowing us to embrace our possibilities and limits
      • Boundary pressure drives choices towards authenticity
      • This is the death driven developmental task of late late age

It's not that I'm afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens. Woody Allen

Beth Lee

death end of life preparation death anxiety1
Death & End of Life Preparation Death Anxiety
  • Geriatric care providers (medical, behavioral, pragmatic) encounter DA daily in clients and their families
    • May impair the ability to make unbiased decisions
    • May prevent the flow of information, sometimes against the law (Sinoff, et al, 2008)
    • DA on the part of care givers may obstruct an elderly person’s right to die naturally
      • 4 out of 5 people would prefer to die at home (Hine, 1979)
  • DA is functionally two constructs:
    • Fear of death
    • Fear of the dying process
  • DA as a function of age
    • Peaks in middle- age
    • All but disappears in elderly (Twelker, 2006)

Death Anxiety as a Function of Age

death end of life preparation cultural issues of preparing
Death & End of Life Preparation Cultural Issues of Preparing
  • Cultural Sensitivity about Death rituals requires investigation
    • In the US, preparedness for death has a legal and psycho-social component
    • Excellent resource on emerging ritual:

death end of life preparation cultural issues of preparing1
Death & End of Life Preparation Cultural Issues of Preparing
  • Emerging EOL Traditions
    • There’s an app for that….
      • Kaddish, the Jewish Mourner's prayer, is recited publicly every day for 11 months after a parent's death as a reaffirmation of faith. This requirement can be difficult for many to fulfill properly though, as the prayer is in Aramaic. Now there is help in the form of an iPhone app to tutor mourners in the pronunciation of this important prayer.
      • Bosan, which in Japanese means grave honoring, is a newly released iPhone app from KnowledgEx which allows you to register information about and carry photos of a loved one’s grave, as well as photos of the deceased. Whenever you want and where ever you are in your busy schedule, you can virtually honor the grave of your loved one with a prayer, along with offerings of incense, flowers, food and water.

Age is an issue of mind over matter.

If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

Mark Twain

1855, aprox 20 yrs old

Much older:

Be good, and you will be lonesome.
