Regarding the issue of “aging”, there have been several theoretical perspectives that address the issue of the growing number of elderly in our society. Social gerontologists study aging and the elderly, and recently, this has grown in importance as the elderly have become the fastest growing segment of the population. Aging is the combination of biological, psychological, and social processes that affect people as they grow older, yet these biological, psychological, and social processes are not the same and may vary considerably within and across cultures. Beginning with functionalism, which was brought about in the 19th century by Comte and Durkheim, it emphasized large-scale social institutions and processes. It focused on understanding the role or contribution of some event, activity or institution to the working of society as a whole, not individuals.
In modern society we have something similar, but also different. Euthanasia can be used for people who are in an immense amount of pain, and decide to end their suffering. Doctors will peacefully kill them with an injection. This is also known as assisted suicide. The different is that the people in Jonas’s society often don’t have a choice to be released or not.
She says she does not want to hurt her mother’s feelings because that would break her hurt badly. She says its better she keeps her illness to herself because she don’t like it when people feel sorry for her. In this problem I will use the understanding stage of Egan counselling skills. Firstly as a counselor I will make the lady aware of her situation that she needs support from her family and friends. According to the Egan (2010) he says clients fear disorganization this means they fear to self-disclosure because they feel they cannot face what they might find out about themselves, Kate was sick for few months but refused to go to the hospital and find out what was wrong her.
The psychologist has to consider specific factors, which help people to go through the bereavement in the cultural environment his client comes from. The main cause of this diversity is in a variety of traditions of understandings of death and its consequences. Depending on customs, people may treat the death as another step in life development, which would bring

Teen suicide, a disease infecting all humanity, the last, and single solution is ‘The Program’. Very miniscule mistakes could get you or someone close to you flagged, they will be taken to a place of treatment, but when they come back their memories will all be gone. Those in charge of the program see this method as helpful, but all they are doing is putting empty people into society. Sloane thinks she is happy, that she will not be taken into The Program, but she’s not okay.
I also think it should be allowed because it’s that person’s choice to go through with it. As I see it the people who are trying to commit suicide should be allowed to because maybe they are tired of being ill and want to be relieved of the pain and or they just don’t want to live anymore. To my mind I don’t really get why it’s against the law for someone to kill themselves if they want to they should be allowed to. Personally , I think that most of the assisted suicide people’s reason for that is either because they are very sick or they just feel like they can’t live anymore. Many people say that killing themselves is a good way to relieve the pain but the bad thing about that is killing yourself is not the only way to relieve the pain.
In that situation, family members who are present at the time of attempted resuscitation are at high risk for emotional and physical burdens.1On the other hand, being family present during resuscitation may help the family members understand that everything possible to bring the patient back to life has been implemented.1 In addition to quelling suspicion about behind-closed-doors resuscitation efforts and unrealistic expectations of such efforts, the family member's presence may offer the opportunity for a last goodbye and help that person grasp the reality of death, with the hope that the bereavement process will not be prolonged or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Although, the benefits and drawbacks of family presence during resuscitation have been argued since 1987,1 the potential benefits must be weighed against the possibility of stress induced in health care providers and an increase in the emotional burden on family members, as well as the risk of legal claims
Some people who are very sick and won't live very much longer are given pills to peacefully die. Others who are destined to live the rest of their lives in a hospital bed unconscious have families who can pull their plug. There are some people that have bad lives, from bullying, abuse, depression, and such and they don't want to live anymore. So they commit suicide. It's the worst way out, but sometimes the only way as they see it.
Alzheimer’s disease and the effects on family members Diana Gonzalez Community College of Aurora PSY 101-112 General Psychology I: SP17 3/8/2017 Introduction There have been studies that examine the effects of family members who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease being good or bad. Some studies looked at how care givers are effected. They can be known to depress prior to or after death of the person diagnosed with the disease (Stroebe, Zech, Stroebe, & Abakoumkin, 2005).
19. What steps will you take as part of the termination process? (Does the group describe proper and complete steps to take as part of the occupational therapy termination process?) During the termination process, a discharge-planning meeting with the rehabilitation team will occur (Sames, 2013).
who can stay rest assured in a few states that if they want to end their suffering the patients will have the option. Peg Sandeen describes the reason why she supports the “Death with Dignity Act” her husband John had been diagnosed with HIV, his words were “ I don't want to die that way” at that moment Sandeen realized that a “Dying person” wants to “Decide how they die” (deathwithdignity.org). John only wanted to be in authority of his life until the day he perishes John's desire of being in control until the day he passes on only something the right to die can grant because clearly he has been suffering for many years from HIV and has realized he does not want to be consumed by the disease. John wants to live his life knowing the day
Terminally ill patients lose control over so many aspects of their lives, in many ways physician-assisted death gives them back some of the control they lost. Illness is not discriminatory. Therefore, people of all ages and backgrounds are diagnosed with things like cancer, kidney failure, and heart disease every day. Also, for anyone who is unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with any terminal illness, it can feel like their disease controls every aspect of their lives and they have no choice in the matter. Authors for the Journal of the American Society on Aging Lee Combs and Grube describe how persistent pain took control of a young woman named Brittany Maynard’s life, “Even after undergoing a sophisticated surgery and numerous cancer treatments,
