Helping Families to be "Conversation Ready"
To help raise awareness around end-of-life care issues, Care New England has developed a wealth of information regarding palliative and hospice care, including videos Q&As with “conversation ready” clinicians and with Kim Hogg, who discussed the proactive approach that helped her family cope prior to her mother passing away earlier this year. We've also created a “Conversation” info graphic focused on how to start these difficult discussions.
At VNA of Care New England, we understand that many patients and families struggle with the decision about when to start hospice care. It is time for hospice care when a cure for an illness is not likely and your goal becomes comfort and support. Our hospice care emphasizes your quality of life and the relief of pain, whether it is physical, emotional or spiritual.
