Preparing for the Death of a Loved One

Preparing for the death of a loved one – ROJoson’s notes

All persons will die one day.  Scientists have studied that the upper limit of longevity of human beings is at best 125 years, however, the odds is 1 in 10,000.  Age at death of the world’s oldest person has not increased since the 1990s.  The oldest human being on record is Jeanne Louise Calment,  who died at age 122 in 1997.

How to Prepare for the Death of a Loved One


How to Prepare for Death in Your Own Home

No one wants to face death, yet no one can escape it.  What we can do is hope our own death is comfortable, peaceful, and meaningful.

Preparing for death should start before you even receive a terminal diagnosis.

Review Your Life

One of the most important things you will do as you prepare for death is reviewed your life.  This is the step most people talk about when they discuss regrets, accomplishments, hopes, and dreams.  Doing a life review is a way to bring closure to a dying individual.  It can also serve as a legacy of life to the dying individual’s loved ones.

Whether you decide to do an internal life review or record your life story for loved ones, reviewing your life is an important step to take as you prepare for death

Since we have born, we have to die one day.

There are three things sure about death.

  1. One day we will die.
  2. No one knows the exact time of death.
  3. No one knows how we will die.

Death is something that we all have to face sooner or later.

The best way to prepare for death is to live every day as if it is the last. Have no regrets.
