Hospice and Palliative Care Month

November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month!

I am a huge supporter of hospice and palliative care, but I think it’s underutilized in our health care system.

So to help inform and increase awareness, here are some of my favorite books and DVDs on the topic.


Disclosure: These links take you to Amazon for more information, but please save money and either check these books and DVDs out at your local library or buy them used and share with friends!

My father, before he passed away last summer, had the benefit of hospice care for a few weeks before his death. My husband’s family also received support from hospice when his father passed away two years ago.

I’ve found in my own experience that doctors often wait for the patient or the patient’s family to bring up the topic of hospice. That’s why it’s important for everyone to be more informed about what hospice is (or isn’t).
