Here are some places on the Internet that we would like to share with you:
Hospice Hospice is not a place, but a philosophy of care. The goal is to help people live out their last days with dignity and love. Hospice provides nurses, social workers and others who work as a team with a patient’s physician, pastor, and the patient and family to provide support, pain management and other quality of life components. Hospice is not about how you die — it’s about how you live. It’s about living life to its fullest, up to the final moment. It’s about receiving comfort and care, when a cure is no longer possible. It’s about surrounding yourself and your loved ones with medical, emotional, and spiritual support. For additional information visit www.hospiceinfo.org.
