Care of the Dying: Making Decisions and Plans

This video will help caregivers to communicate openly with patients and their families about the terminal illness that the patient is facing, so the patient and family members can have the information they need to make appropriate decisions. The video documents the importance of being honest with the terminally ill person and their family members so they can:

  • understand, ask questions, and make critical choices together
  • experience acceptance and a sense of closure

The video reinforces the role of the caregiver as a supporter of the decisions that are made in regards to treatment or non-treatment options, and encourages caregivers to openly express their own emotions about losing patients that they have come to know and care for over an extended period of time.

This tape is part of a four tape series. The other tapes in the series are:

  • Care of the Dying: Learning About Dying: Death, the Final Stage of Life
