Family Guide to Hospice and Palliative Care
When a loved-one is nearing death, either due to old age or a terminal illness, hospice care is needed.
This compassionate way to care for the dying is practiced throughout the United States and is given by trained professionals to help make your loved-one more comfortable during this natural stage of life.
If you have never experienced a loved-one going through hospice, you probably have some questions about what it is, what it offers, and how you can get hospice care for a loved-one who is facing death.
