The launch of our blog has been a long process, built from conversations with co-workers about the types of questions caregivers—and the general public—often have about care giving, and ultimately about hospice care. We wanted to explore these issues and questions in a way that effectively reaches as many people as possible, in a comfortable environment. We hope this blog will be a tool to do just that.
The goal of our blog is twofold; first, to provide resources and information for care givers, healthcare professionals and the general public. Second, by giving a “sneak peek” into what goes on behind the scenes at a hospice organization, we hope readers will come to a better understanding of what hospice care is really about. It is our goal to open lines of communication, encourage dialogue, answer questions and break down the walls of fear and uncertainty that often surround the decision to begin hospice care.
The greatest advantage of a blog is the ability to interact and connect with readers. We encourage you to post your comments, questions and thoughts with us. What topics would you like us to address? Do you have a personal experience to share? We’d love to hear from you.
