Celebrate Moments of Life

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

Most people prefer not to think about death in their daily lives. It's understandable of course but it's also inevitable. For most people, all they want is to be physically comfortable, at peace in your own home, enjoying as many moments as possible with loved ones doing the things you love to do up until the very end. And now that is possible with hospice care.

Hospice is a team-oriented approach to providing specialized care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury. It includes expert medical care, pain management and emotional support for patients and their families. Hospice care supports living one’s life to the fullest with dignity regardless of how much time remains.

Seven in 10 Americans said they would prefer to die at home according to a Time/CNN Poll. Twenty-five percent actually do according to the Centers for Disease Control. In a recent national survey, respondents agreed that expertise in keeping a terminally-ill patient comfortable is the most important consideration at end of life. This is the essence of hospice care.

Although I've never had a terminally ill family member, I do agree that when my time comes, I would like to be at home with my loved ones up until the end.
