Savoured to the last crumb: A discussion of experienced individuals in advanced years

14 July 1987

Abstract

This paper discusses the belief that it is necessary for psychologists to consider all human beings individually, in a personal and caring way, thus placing the emphasis for care on a better quality of service and avoiding the formulation of decisions about whole groups of people which can depersonalize human existence. Case histories suggest a more experiential approach and suggestions are made to promote the idea of living to the last moment of life with as much vigor, enthusiasm and humor as is humanly possible to possess for any given individual regardless of age.
