Hospice Care Therapeutic for More than Patients

Posted on December 2, 2013

WFFA out of Dallas, Texas recently posted an article detailing some of the ‘other’ care that a hospice provides besides pain care, not only for the patient, but also for their family.

Sanchez said hospice isn’t limited to end-of-life pain care anymore.

Clients can receive a variety of therapies, including massage and acupuncture. Their families can also benefit from counseling during and after their loved one’s life.

“They minister to me while they’re taking care of her,” Paul said. “I didn’t realize that first, but then I did after a while.”

The full article can be read on the WFFA website.
