Dying at home leads to ‘more peace and less grief’

Comment

Anonymous | 10-Oct-2015 8:48 pm 'M stone there are many different reasons for death and not all deaths are predictable and can be planned for!' Quite - that is the point ! Although if you understand that a death is inherently unpredictable, you can allow for that uncertainty within your planning: http://www.bmj.com/content/350/bmj.h3181/rr-2 Where I pointed out: ' at the moment behaviour sets for EoL home death seem to assume an 'idealised model' which is very different from the reality of many EoL home deaths. The guidance and protocols, should be based on the reality of EoL at home, accepting the many complications, and not on 'a guidance-writers' wish-list of how EoL at home should work in a 'perfect and much-simplified world''.' It is why I'm so angry, about contemporary behaviour for End-of-Life Home Death: http://www.dignityincare.org.uk/Discuss_and_debate/Discussion_forum/?obj=viewThread&threadID=785&forumID=45
