GV hospice offers insight on services

As part of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month in November, Living Waters Hospice is offering education on hospice services to ensure people understand what is available to them during a life-limiting-illness.

"Coping with a serious or life-limiting illness is not easy - in fact, it might be the hardest work you'll ever do," said Community Services Representative Heather Burt. "Working with doctors and hospitals, navigating the maze of care needs, figuring out insurance coverage, all in addition to taking care of your family can be overwhelming.

"We want the community to know that there's help available that brings comfort, love and respect when they're most needed."

Hospice and palliative care are different than traditional health care services. Hospices provide pain management, symptom control, psychosocial support, and spiritual care to patients and their families when a cure is not possible. Palliative care makes these services available earlier in the course of an illness.

Together, hospice and palliative care combine the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that are so important for patients and family caregivers coping with serious and life-limiting illness.

"We're working hard all year round to make sure people know the full range of services that we provide in the community," Burt said. "Yet during November, we ramp up our efforts to raise awareness of the high-quality care that's available. In fact, that's the message behind this year's Hospice Month theme: Comfort, Love, Respect."

Every year, more than 1.6 million people living with a life-limiting illness receive care from the nation's hospice and palliative care providers reports the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

Information about hospice and palliative care is available from Living Waters Hospice or The National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization's Caring Connections website at www.Caringinfo.org.
