For the Families of the Dying

Nyt_estrin

The New York Times has an article "For the Families of the Dying, Coaching as the Hours Wane".  They discuss the details of the hospice movement in the US and how it can help families deal with the impending loss of a loved one.  The article also talks about the final hours of  a death vigil and the different emotions and dynamics people go through. 

But I must admit, this article didn't really appeal to me.  It's not something I want to think about right now.  But perhaps others will benefit from it.

My Father was moved into Hospice Apr 19th of this year, the next morning he was gone. The atmosphere of the hospice, was something I knew nothing of before going and I must say that it takes the "institutional" feel out of being under care.

I thought it was a very good article. Thanks for sharing.
