youtube.com/watch?v=uzfcvptgJ2c - End of Life – Aging Matters 59min.Most Americans say they prefer to die at home. However, 70% of deaths occur in a hospital, nursing home or long term care facility. "NPT Reports: 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.
Produced and presented by Nashville Public Television (NPT), 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. Among the topics addressed in "Aging Matters" are the roles of advance directives, palliative care and hospice in an end-of-life strategy. Kathy Mattea, the Grammy® and CMA® Award-winning singer-songwriter and advocate for a number of causes, including AIDS awareness and research, global warming and Appalachian mining practices, hosts the show.
