Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Interviews with one hundred elderly people at Selwyn Village in Auckland showed that 98 did not fear death although 42 feared how they might die. Two-thirds expressed a belief in life after death, although details of this finding varied considerably. The pre-death period was investigated and it was concluded that the concept of categorising elderly people in a pre-death period is not of scientific value.
