Creator of US Hospice system dies

I get the premium edition of This Is True, so due to copyright concerns I can't reprint the "Honorary Unsubscribe", but I thought it might be of interest to Marcia (and others) so I'll link to it.

http://www.honoraryunsubscribe.com/ click on the Elisabeth Kubler-Ross link on the right.

An interesting life, indeed.

God rest her soul.

My Dad spent his last five days in a hospice in hopes of controlling his pain. They were wonderful to him and to the family. My hat goes off to all hospice workers/volunteers and certainly to Elisabeth Kubler-Ross.

Thanks for this Cindi

I just got around to checking some posts I had missed here in SE. Just a few days ago I included an article in the Hospice Newsletter that I edit (and write, and copy, and fold, and ..... Happy ) about this wonderful woman and her contributions. She will be missed by so many.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross was an extremely positive moving force in Hospice. Her works have been instrumental in many aspects of Hospice becoming a success in the U.S. I still use her model of grief (we use the abbreviation of DABDA - Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance) in my bereavement work.

For those of you interested in more information regarding the birth and growth of Hospice, here is the best website for such, IMO. The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. We utilize them a great deal as a resource:

Once again, Cindi, thank you,

Yes she helped create hospices throughout the country . However the concept predates the lady by at least a century. St Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx (NY) might very well be the first hospice in this country and it dates back to the post civil war years.
