The Kubler-Ross model, is better known as, “The Five Stages of Grief”
Her five stages of grief have become widely accepted.
The five stages include:
Denial – “No, Not me, it cannot be true”
Anger- “Why me?”
Bargaining- “What if I …?”
Depression- “What is there to live for?”
Acceptance- “It’s okay to live again”
There is no defined sequence of these stages when a person is faced with a terminal illness or being the caregiver of a love one that is dying.
