Hospice Care – Celebrate life

There are many myths and misconceptions about Hospice Care. The death of a loved one is a very traumatic experience, because it reminds us about our own mortality. Depending on the circumstances of someone’s death, this experience may cause fear, anxiety and guilt. But Hospice Care is different: it’s not about dying. Hospice Care is all about life, the quality of life and comfort care. Highly specialized staff like Physicians, nurses, social workers, spiritual care specialists, bereavement coordinator, and volunteers will do their utmost to provide passionate and excellent care for the patients and their families. Comfort Care, pain management, and compassionate care by highly experienced staff will guide this journey in the patient’s home. Hospice Care is available for almost everyone in the USA. This work shop will answer all of your questions and will remove most of the myths and misconceptions about Hospice Care.  Let’s have some time for those, who don’t have time anymore!
