Holistic Care 

Kelly Biermann is 91 years old. She is currently living in a long-term health community. Kelly has lived her life on a farm. She is very particular about eating everything natural and home grown. Her family researched nursing homes because they wanted to make sure that the facility they chose respected and followed Kelly’s life plan. Kelly has been declining in her health gradually.

What if…Kelly takes a sudden decline in health and is facing death soon? What steps can you, as the nurse, take to promote her life?
