Hospice is the primary system to provide care for the terminally ill and their families.

  • Respite Services: to allow caregivers needed breaks
  • Bereavement Counseling: to provide support for surviving family members and significant others for as much as a full year after loss
    "The Hospice Choice"also addresses sensitive issues like methods of payment, issues of ethnicity, the special problems raised by sudden death, and the realities of caregiver exhaustion. It will give you the concrete information, support, and encouragement that will help you make wise, compassionate decisions for yourself and for your loved ones.

    Reviews - What do customers think about The Hospice Choice: In Pursuit of a Peaceful Death?

    necessary read  May 19, 2008
    Great book, and a necessary read- especially for those of us living in death-fearing cultures. Having been a hospice volunteer for 13 years, I've seen a dramatic difference in end-of-life care when patients, their families, and their medical caregivers are educated on the hospice philosophy. It's a beautiful stage of life, the dying process, when handled with the respect every other stage of life deserves.
    Great book  Aug 12, 2007
    I found this book educational and easy to read. It provides a very clear picture of hospice and palliative care to the layperson. I wish that more physicians and their staff would read books like this so they could better prepare patients and their families for hospice care. I also wish I had read it before my mother died because I would have known better questions to ask our hospice and perhaps would have received better care for mom, myself and the rest of the family.
