discussion question :Identify and explain any two (2) ways in which encounters with death are distinctive for older adult
with two replies for these two responeses:
They are “less fearful” of death and acceptance toward death. Which means they may accept death more easily than others because they have been able to live long full lives and of their own death as a result of a socialization process through which they repeatedly experience the death of others.
They may have come to view their lives as having Less value that the lives of younger persons and thus may not object so strenuously to giving them up. Death may seem to an older adult to represent less of threat to debility, isolation and dependence. Most adults want to die at home, without pain and without being a burden to their families.
I know as a middle age women I sometimes worry about all of the things older adults don’t let faze them like how am I going to die or will I be alone but this shows their uniqueness in preparing for death which we should do before we reach the age of having to do so.
