If a person has lived to great age or has a terminal illness, we may anticipate and prepare ourselves for their death. In other cases, however, a person?s death may be sudden or unexpected. In either case, a grieving process takes place and people experience a range of emotions. There may be disbelief that the person had died; there may be sadness; anger or guilt depending on the circumstances may be very difficult to deal with. Bereavement can be especially traumatic when a person dies suddenly or dramatically because of accident, serious injury or suicide, for example. It is hard to change but adjustments have to take place as we learn to cope without that significant person in our life. Some changes are inevitable, some are not. Some will contribute positive outcomes in our lives, some will be negative. We all need to learn to cope and adjust our selves in different situations. If we can?t be prepared enough maybe we should learn how we can control things to be able to have a positive impact in our development.

Volunteers Hospice volunteers play an important role in planning and giving hospice care in the United States. Volunteers may be health professionals or lay people who provide services that range from hands-on care to working in the hospice office or fundraising. Staff support Hospice care staff members are kind and caring. They communicate well, are good listeners, and are interested in working with families who are coping with a life-threatening illness. They are usually specially trained in the unique issues surrounding death and dying. Yet, because the work can be emotionally draining, it is very important that support is available to help the staff with their own grief and stress. Ongoing education about the dying process is also an important part of staff support. Coordination of care The interdisciplinary team coordinates and supervises all care 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. This team is responsible for making sure that all involved services share information. This may include the inpatient facility, the home care agency, the doctor, and other community professionals, such as pharmacists, clergy, and funeral directors. You and your caregivers are encouraged to contact your hospice team if you are having a problem, any time of the day or night. There is always someone on call to help you with whatever may arise. Hospice care assures you and your family that you are not alone and help can be reached at any time. Finding a hospice care: Hospice and palliative care services support people who have a life-limiting or terminal illness, their family, carers and close friends. There are a number of other local and national organisations that can offer practical, emotional and financial information and support for people affected by life-limiting and terminal illnesses Conclusion: from the unit is have learned the nature of self-concept and its links with self-esteem and I learned how a self-concept affect individuals and I learned the potential impact on self-concept of major life changes. From M2 and D1 I have learned the role how the roles of the health and social care professional support individuals with transition and change. ...read more.
