Death is just a ‘Transition’
We are taught to avoid talking about it. If we push it away we will not have to deal with it.
Do we give our power away to the fear of dying?

I am currently writing a Caregiver version of the book "The Heart of Hospice: Core Competencies for Reclaiming the Mystery" published in 2015 for Hospice Professionals. After several lay persons read the book and I received several calls from families who wanted to care for their loved ones at home, a rewrite of the book by Brenda Clarkson and me was launched. Due to the questions I received about how to treat symptoms at the end of life, I decided to add a section devoted to possible symptoms and how to manage those at the end of life. This has taken longer than anticipated, however I am very excited to share this 'hopefully' by this summer.

Does Hospice give medications to 'kill' patients? Often when patients are able to go home and hospice attends to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs, the patient becomes calm and is able to die peacefully. This may be misunderstood as 'killing' them with medications. Most of the care I was involved in utilized minimal to no medications unless the pain was severe. Then we provided medications that the patient controlled to alleviate their symptoms.
Is it difficult to care for a loved one at the end of life? In my experience, once the loved one is in their home around family and in a familiar setting, the care becomes much easier. The caregiver no longer has to travel to see the loved on and others can visit just as they always have. Hospice is wonderful to facilitate care in the home.
