When asked, most people say they want to spend their last days at home. And while supports for home death are improving, sometimes a family finds they need help twenty-four hours a day. In that case, a hospice residence might be the best option. A hospice residence is a home away from home where people come to live their final days. When a person enters a hospice residence, it allows their family to hand over all the intricate details associated with pain and symptom management and focus on being a family member or friend. Learn more about receiving care in hospice residence in this week's podcast.
