This article is very similar to the one above, however, this is from the perspective of a Mortuary owner, Brian Simmons.
"He understands all too well why people are choosing to die at home: His own 49-year-old daughter succumbed to the coronavirus just before Christmas at a Springfield hospital, where the family only got phone updates as her condition deteriorated".
“The separation part is really rough, rough rough,” said Simmons. “My daughter went to the hospital and we saw her once through the glass when they put her on the ventilator, and then we never saw her again until after she died.”
"Before the pandemic, hospice workers cared for patients dying of heart disease, cancer, dementia and other terminal illnesses in long-term care facilities and, to a lesser extent, home settings. Many families hesitated to go the die-at-home route because of the many logistical challenges, including work schedules and complicated medical needs".
The article makes the very valid point, that regardless if you want to die at home, or in a facility/hospital, these wishes needs to be written and discussed with loved ones and the Health Care Agent.
