Careful cleansing of the skin is the last point which needs to be mentioned in an article like the present. For those who wish to obtain hospice care at home, it is essential to have a caregiver — usually a spouse or other family member, or a partner or friend — who is willing and able to take primary responsibility for the patient, assisted by the hospice team. Descartes is said to have favored such opinions: he told Sir Kenelm Digby that, although he would not venture to promise immortality, he was certain that his life might be lengthened to the period of that enjoyed by the patriarchs. Buchwald was a living testimonial to the benefits of hospice care.

Nay, the Tragopogon luteum shuts itself up so early as nine in the morning; and this plant, therefore, gives us reason to compare it to certain night birds and beasts of the animal world, which are active only during night, and sleep in the daytime. Merely to enumerate the causes to which longevity has been attributed in attempting to account for individual cases would be a task of some magnitude; it will be sufficient to mention a few somewhat probable theories. Below, the cone-huts are to be found; above the rapids we have villages, long and straight, of detached square huts surrounded by tall logs, which form separate courts, and add materially to the strength of the village. Medicare also requires that the doctor referring someone for hospice care must certify that the patient is expected to die within six months. Buchwald — are notoriously poor at predicting life expectancy unless patients are within days or hours of death.

Public health efforts are impeded by this, as a lack of education can lead to poorer health outcomes. I felt oddly close to my own dead parents as I read along. Addison, in the "Spectator," after describing the valetudinarian who constantly weighed himself and his food, and yet became sick and languishing, aptly remarks, "A continual anxiety for life vitiates all the relishes of it, and casts a gloom over the whole face of nature, as it is impossible that we should take delight in anything that we are every moment afraid of losing.
