This post written by a care home doctor who works in a small Swedish town. In other words, he is responsible for the wellbeing of frail elderly people living in care homes. He has treated a lot of patients with covid-19. Since the situation may be different in some other countries, it is useful to know before reading the article that in Sweden, people stay in their own homes until they are very close to the end of their lives. 50% of people who move in to care homes are dead within six months.
The article was published in Svenska Dagbladet, one of the big Swedish daily newspapers, in October 2020. It has been translated for it to reach an international audience. Something the author agreed. The article clearly shows the difference between how the general public, and in particular younger people, think about death, and how doctors think about death.
