Normative (those that happen generally and are expected) and non-normative (those that are unexpected and unplanned) life events impact older adults and their abilities to cope in dealing with significant change in health or a loss of a spouse. One such event, the end of life, can be considered normative or non-normative depending on the circumstances. The end of life can present difficult issues for family members. It’s a matter of perspective. Some people view death as a natural part of life, but for others, it can be a very controversial issue. Each family member has his or her own view regarding how end-of-life issues should be dealt with, and sometimes society doesn’t agree with those views

  • Explain from a comparative standpoint how coping strategies may differ between older and younger adults. Research the coping strategies that older adults employ. How are these strategies used to deal with such stressors as the loss of a spouse or a significant change in health? Compare and contrast the coping strategies of older and younger adults.
  • Briefly describe the differences between hospice and death with dignity laws. Explain how these different perspectives on end-of-life issues might impact an end-of-life scenario. Consider the perspectives of the individual who is dying, as well as the various family members. Include the Kübler-Ross model in your explanation.
