Case work with dying patients

Case work with dying patients This is something which touches very tender places in all of us. It probably affects most closely those of us who work in Hospitals, but it does also enter the scope of all Social Workers at some time. Even if they are not spending as much time amongst dying people and their relatives Social Workers everywhere are attempting to give some sort of help to the bereaved members of a family, to those who are nursing a loved person in grave illness. We are all certainly working with old people whose age brings them close to death even if they are comparatively well. The closer one gets to people, the more and more people one sees, the more one wishes to be able to give help of the highest order in these circum- stances. There may be no conclusions we can draw in our present stage of development. The following thoughts are going to be my own wondering and rumblings put forward very humbly. I don't feel that I have yet found the finest and most delicate ways of helping.
