The More You Know
Dealing with an end-of-life illness tests emotional strength as well as personal beliefs but is a process that is made easier with knowledge and information. Whether you are a patient with a life-limiting illness, the loved one of a patient, a caregiver, a grieving family or a health care provider, it is important to become familiar with the resources within and beyond your own community.
Among many resources are:
- Support groups for patients and families
- Bereavement groups
- Community workshops
- Continuing education courses for professionals
- Printed publications
- Online articles
- Blogs and patient stories
- Websites specifically geared to issues death and dying
As leaders in the palliative and hospice movement since 1978, we at Care Dimensions value the dynamic flow of information. We welcome your questions, and recognize that these questions are steps in acquiring knowledge. We will provide you with answers and guide you in your search for those answers we might not have.
To face impending loss and ultimately grief is challenging and often overwhelming. But, for a patient or family member, going through this experience cushioned with knowledge brings balance to the process. For health care providers and caretakers, access to information and peer support surely has immeasurable benefits.
Let Care Dimensions be your wellspring of information – information that will light the path ahead, whichever way the road turns.
