Question description

According to Chapter 10 in your textbook, the process of dying has become increasingly bureaucratized in that hospitals and long-term care facilities have made the handling of death a routine. In addition, the preparation of the deceased’s body for burial has also been allotted to funeral directors rather than the family of the deceased.

After reading Chapter 10 in your textbook in preparation for this discussion, please address the following:

  1. Discuss how death has been bureaucratized and what that means in terms of the experience of dying for the elderly and their families.
  2. What are the sociological factors that have led to this bureaucratization of death?
  3. How has this bureaucratization impacted society?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references
