Caring with Confidence

Knowledge is power. It's easier to prepare for and accept the journey ahead when you know what to expect. Care Dimensions provides a comprehensive patient and family guide to hospice care to all patients recieving care at their home. The guide provides information about safety in the home, medication safety, how to provide daily care, and what to expect at end of life, as well as other tips. All home care patients receive a copy of the guide at admission or you can download a PDF here.

Families may also want to review our booklet, What to Expect at End of Life.
