Describe which of Kübler-Ross’s stages of grief are most applicable to Jackie’s situation. Explain your response. Depression is the most applicable to Jackie’s situation. She is having feelings despair about her lack of mobility and independence, and as she reflects on her life she has regret about not giving back to society. She also views life as short fleeting and precious something we should never take for granted. Kübler-Ross’s stages of grief describe the depression stage as “As the dying person becomes even more aware of the reality of the situation, depression, despair, and a sense of hopelessness become the predominant emotional responses” (Sigelman, & Rider, 2017). The depression stage matches her description of her feelings.

Explain how a person experiences Kübler-Ross’s stages of grief. Address the following in your response:oDoes a person move through the stages in a linear fashion?

oWhat have you read or experienced about grief to support your answer? A person does not experience Kübler-Ross’s stages of grief in a linear fashion. People experience stages of grief in many ways. Some experience all stages and some only experience one or two of the stages. The often go in and out of the same stage multiple times. My what I call my second mother who was really just a very close family friend who I spent a lot of time with and considered my second mother wasdiagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. When she was diagnosed, she was given six most at most to live. She only lived three. I spent a lot of time with her until the end even sat with her as she died holding her hand. The only two stages of grief I think she went through was anger that lasted for about two weeks and then acceptance. She accepted her death and seem to be a peace with it until the end. Her last week was very hard but even then, she seemed to be at peace with her death.

Explain why having a sense of cultural competence (empathy, respect, self-awareness, cultural awareness, communication) could help Jamie be a more effective caregiver.Because different cultures have different beliefs surrounding death and the afterlife it will be important for Jamie to have a good understanding of each culture to be able to better suite the needs of different people from different cultures. It will make it so she can connect easier with each patient and be able to suite each patients needs and wishes. It will also make it easier to work the families if you have a good understanding of their culture.

Given your unique needs, desires, and aspirations, describe some things that you feel will provide you with a sense of life satisfaction as you enter the later stages of the life span. One of my biggest needs to feel a sense of life satisfaction is knowing I have raised my three daughters with the right set of skills to be independent and successful in life. Knowing that I have equipped them to be self-sufficient and good caring people in this world would give me the biggest felling of life satisfaction. Another thing is the reason I am back in school. I want to know that I helped make a difference in people lives who really need the help. Therefore, I am back in school working to become a substance abuse counselor. I have lost two cousins to drugs and one uncle to alcohol. I am raising my cousin daughter as mine own because he couldn’t get clean. Because of this I want to help people who have substance abuse problems. I have been on the family side sitting 1 back watching feeling as though you can’t help them. Now I want to be on the side who is helping them. Making a difference.
