Description

  • Most Americans say they prefer to die at home. However, 70% of deaths occur in a hospital, nursing home or long term care facility. Aging Matters: End of Life weaves personal stories of families alongside interviews with scholars, doctors, and medical ethicists to explore the complicated experience of dying, and why so few live the death they say they want. The program explores how the culture of death and dying in America has been radically transformed by medical science, how the medical system reinforces our culture-wide unwillingness to face death, as well as efforts to change how Americans understand and talk about dying.
