I haven’t written about Hospice care for awhile, so I thought I’d post this article on the benefits of palliative and hospice care, at the end of life, which applies to everyone, because none of us get out of this alive.
The last 10 years of my career in healthcare was in hospice care and it was the most fulfilling work I have ever done in my life. It was privilege to be allowed into community folks homes to support the patient and family as they prepare for the inevitable loss of their loved one.

If you have a loved one challenged with a chronic disease, talk to their doctor about hospice care before there is a medical crisis. Hospice care is covered under Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances also cover it. https://medicare.com/coverage/medicare-cover-hospice-care/
My two sisters-in-law, Marcia & Cindy, we’re patients on the hospice program that employed me.
We Can Never Lose Hope……..
