Guest: Toni Miles, PhD, Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University of Georgia Death is a part of life in nursing homes and long-term care facilities. But that doesn’t make it any easier. The inclination among some caretakers is to keep the loss quiet, so as not to upset the other residents. But epidemiologist Toni Miles at the University of Georgia, disagrees. Her research in care facilities suggests that openly grieving a patient is healthier for that person’s friends and family, as well as the staff and other residents.
