How do elderly come to better terms with the finality of death?
Still gives me anxiety thinking about the thought of being gone from this earth forever.

Dementia makes them not care so much.

What choice do they/we have?

They don’t die in the same world they were born into. This place has turned to shit

Because they’re tired of feeling like crap all the time.

It would suck to be 80. Ain’t no future in growing old..

For Christians, death isn’t the end, only the beginning.

Having faith helps. If you believe in an afterlife, it makes the thought of death less final. And if you’re wrong, you’ll never know. Win-win.

Or you just reach a point where you’re in so much pain & miserable that you don’t really mind the thought of not going on any more.

I was a little more at peace with dying before having a kid. Now, the thought makes me really sad. I want to see him grow up.

In past generations they leaned on faith. Now that people believe we're no different than insects or rodents, I assume they freak out.

Their feelings are a choice. Lots of times they just don’t care and are ready. They lose the fear.

I really do think it’s a defense mechanism against the inevitable reality of death.

I’m 36 and already wondering WTF at the direction of the world. I imagine in 36 more years, I’ll be okay with checking out.

Most of us as we age get wiser, Bud.

Maybe it could happen for you…

Aging forces folks to accept limits and diminishing skilz.

And, there is no other alternative, nobody gets out alive.

re: How do elderly come to better terms with the finality of death?
My mom will be 74 soon, and she talks about death more than she used to. She says she’s ready bc she doesn’t want to learn anything new, and she’s not interested in anything anymore.

My grandma (her mom) lived until a month short of 91 - so I told her she has a while …

It helps to be a Christian and know that physical death is really just the beginning and not the end.

My Grandpa is 95
His mind is 100% but his body is not
He’s told us for the last few years he was ready, he said 95 is too long to live
He worked hard his entire life to provide for his family, he’s watched his kids, grandkids & great grandchild grow up & become productive adults
He’s buried a son & his wife
He said there’s nothing left here for him to do

It does me that as well. But, I worry about an early death mostly because I have younger children 10-17. As I've gotten older I can feel that it is getting to be less.of a concern.

Both of my parents were ok with dying years before they did. I suspect it will get easier to accept.
