Hospice: When & How
Learn about hospice care and find out if it is right for you and your loved one.
This learning module was inspired by the Facebook Caregiver Connection Community Member Deb B. who had anxiety about calling hospice for her ailing husband:
“I don’t mind taking care of him, but I can’t handle sitting in house doing nothing but watch him waste away. I try to do things outside while it is summer. It’s hard for him that he can’t come outside and help me. I feel so guilty being outside instead of right with him, but I need it for me. When it gets to that time, I won’t leave his side. But I need to get things done here also. Am I being mean, or selfish, or uncaring? I just don’t know what to do.” – Deb B.
