Hospice Services in Long-Term Care: Benefits for Family and Long-Term Care Staff
Who could not want extra hands, extra love, extra care – we want that on a day-to-day basis – so who would not want it at the end of their life?” – From the DVD
More and more long-term care facilities are offering the option of special end-of-live care to residents by establishing relationships which bring hospice staff and philosophy into the nursing home. This DVD gives a first-hand perspective from hospice team workers on the one-on-one care they provide, how residents, family, other staff members benefit directly, and how this collaboration can ease and provide a better understanding of the end-of-life process.
The DVD covers:
- The Role of the Hospice Team
- Comfort Care
- Understanding Advance Directives and Treatment Limitations
- Emotional and Spiritual Support
- Bereavement Counseling
An excellent introduction to the concept of hospice in long-term care for multiple audiences, including families, long-term care staff, and students training to work with the elderly.
