All analyses were performed with the use of SAS software . A two-sided P value of significantly less than 0.05 was considered to indicate statistical significance. Results Disability Trajectories Five distinct trajectories in the last year of life were identified: no disability, catastrophic disability, accelerated disability, progressive disability, and persistently severe disability . The trajectories of the group with accelerated disability and the group with catastrophic disability diverged at about 10 and 3 months before death, respectively, from the trajectory of the group with no disability. The severe nature of disability in the progressive-disability group increased during the period of the year gradually.27), accelerated-disability group , and catastrophic-disability group and was significantly low in these three organizations than in the group with persistently severe disability , whose members remained severely disabled throughout the last year of life.
