While unpleasant to think about, it is a single universal truth that all our lives will one day come to an end. In honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month this November, we’ve compiled facts about the available options before you’re faced with the conflicting and overwhelming emotions of finding help for a loved one during this difficult time.
The Caregiver Action Network (CAN) designated November as National Family Caregivers Month as a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. In most cases, before patients need the help of a professional, they rely on the care provided by their own family members.
