How to Engage in the Hospice Conversation: A Guide for Post-Acute Caregivers

May 22, 2015

While we all realize how important the end-of-life conversation is, it’s difficult—even for caregivers who may confront death frequently.

To help facilitate an effective and compassionate conversation about hospice care, Medalogix’s in-house clinician, who has 20 years of palliative care experience, assembled this hospice conversation guide.

While this document is helpful to anyone interested in engaging in a compassionate end-of-life care conversation, it’s specifically designed with the post-acute caregiver in mind. Home Health, Skilled Nursing and Long Term Care clinicians are uniquely positioned to facilitate an effective end-of life-conversation. While there are many elements that must come together to truly improve the way we die—like advanced directives and general end-of-life awareness—post-acute caregivers may have the biggest opportunity to help patients truly live the final days of their lives.
