Maine Voices: Calling hospice doesn’t mean giving up; it means taking charge – The Portland Press Herald / Maine Sunday Telegram

Hospice care helps patients live a life that is as enjoyable as possible while controlling pain and managing symptoms. Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.pressherald.com A strong message that calling hospice does not mean giving up.  Taking charge of one’s final days to entrust dignity and comfort is key.  This does not mean the person has resigned to defeat regarding death but it does mean if he does die he will go out on his own terms.  If you would like to learn more about pastoral thanatology training then please review the program. #pastoralthanatologytraining

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.thehoopsnews.com Great article about the differences of end of life care at home versus the hospital. Obviously at home deaths are more peaceful if the proper care is available.
