Grief is a natural reaction to loss and loss is an inevitable part of being human. Many older people must deal with the cumulative effect of losses created by lifelong inequities as a result of their age, race, social class, sexual orientation, gender, or ability. In addition, ageist assumptions may mean that family members and health care providers presume that loss in old age is not a big deal, and devalue older adults grief. As individuals proceed with their aging journey, they are more likely to experience multiple layers of loss some from positive life changes and others with negative impacts that the individual has no control over. Loss and grief faced by older adults can involve the death of partners, family members and friends but the inevitable loss is approaching ones own death and the dying process. Understanding resources and choices available can have a definitive impact on this process. It is often that as we age, we look to a good death. What is a good death? Describe the aging journey of an older adult including direct and secondary losses and how they impact the dying process. Is end-of-life care an appropriate personal selection and what is the impact of that choice on you and those you care for? You can use on one or more of these topics. Its up to you which one you want to focus on: 1. Differentiate the types of losses that older adults may experience 1b. List common non-death related losses in old age 2. Enumerate how the death of loved ones affects the well-being of older adults 3. Identify different end-of-life care options 3b. Discuss palliative care, hospice, and the “right to die” legislation Use APA latest format for your cited data(in-text and as reference!). In your data you will refer to 2 outside sources. One of these outside resources must be a personal communication with an older adult. (Please, make up a story of a conversation with an older adult).
