Blog: Hospice & Palliative Care Insights - 2014
Hospice care can be a hot button issue. You’ve probably seen mixed reviews on the right hospice care, when to do it and the implications of a patient entering hospice care. It can be hard to tell the difference between accurate information and information that might be biased or poorly researched. In fact, Consumer Reports recently published an article, How to Find a Good Hospice Program, that featured six tips for finding the right hospice care that appear to be one-sided, and leaning toward a specific type of hospice: non-profit with inpatient care.
You might know someone who’s a caregiver. They gracefully fill every hour of every day with caring for a loved one, managing a household and juggling work, bills and childcare. They somehow squeeze it all in, leaving little time for themselves. If this sounds like someone you know, this holiday season, remind them that you're there to help and that self-care is essential. Give them a gift to help them care for themselves.
