There is something scary about dying. We'd rather not talk about it. Our focus is on living, not? Health trends flourish by wanting to stay young forever, and medicine must keep people alive. You can see death as the failure of medicine. In recent decades, dying has therefore become a hidden, lonely and even sterile event. It takes place more often in the clinical environment of a hospital or retirement home than in the warmth of a family circle. Dying is normal, but "dying well" is not.
