Learn What Hospice Can Do For You

Death is inevitable.
While normal day-to-day thinking and action doesn't have you thinking about your death, it should be something everyone thinks about and prepares for. Anything you can prepare for, makes it easier on your loved ones.

Did you know, 7 in 10 Americans would rather die at home? According to a TIME/CNN poll, this is a fact. Twenty-five percent actually do die at home according to the Centers for Disease Control. Recently a study was done, and expertise showed that keeping a terminally ill patient as comfortable as possible is the most important consideration at the end of life. This consideration is the essence of hospice care.


There are a ton of horror stories around regarding hospice care, like patients laying in bed all day and night, barely conscious. Hospice care can actually improve the quality of the last moments of life, and three-quarters of the families agree it is the best option for a terminally-ill person. Out of those families, 69% believed that hospice made a better impact on their family as well. Another myth is regarding families losing control over what happens with their loved ones care. The family can choose the hospice care provider or even be trained to serve as a primary caregiver for their loved one. A specialist is on-hand for support when needed. Families actually play a vital role in their loved ones care. 

It is never too soon or too late to explore your end-of-life options. It's the best thing you can do for your family, so they won't have to worry.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
