Read about hospice resources you can in Washington state.
Perhaps the most delicate of senior care issues is end of life care, which requires not only a positive attitude in hard times, but also an unfailingly gentle demeanor. While it is emotionally distressing to think of establishing such care, preparation will actually ease your mind when the care is needed and you have a plan in place.Hospice Care
Many terminally ill patients and their families rely on Hospice which emphasizes palliative care--care and attention not aimed at eliminating a disease, but instead focused on relieving pain and reducing symptoms during a patient's final days. Hospice staff members work to keep an individual comfortable and soothed, bringing a sense of much-needed peace for families.
The Washington State Hospice and Palliative Care Organization has done incredible work for in-state residents seeking and providing hospice care in-home, at nursing homes, or at other in-patient facilities. The University of Washington is also doing valuable work to improve the quality of care available for Washington patients, by funding and founding the End of Life Care Research Program.More Resources
