Environmental Events and the Timing of Death.
Marriott, Cindy
There is some evidence that the timing of death may not be random. Taking into consideration some of the variables which possibly affect death, this paper reviews intervention techniques with the possible goal of saving lives. Knowing that the elderly respond to the environment, society should accept as its responsibility the provision of support within that environment. The author sees this support as coming from community-based intervention which would hopefully delay death, allowing the elderly to remain as functional members of society, and returning the elderly to the mainstream of society. Part of this environmental intervention relates to changing society's attitudes toward aging. The other thrust of the paper is toward community intervention, where the importance of marriage and friends is emphasized. (Author/PC)
