How Conversation Is Changing Hospice Care
There is power in conversation.
What families fear most right now is that they won’t know what’s going on once they move mom or dad onto hospice or into residential care. Giving family a direct line of communication with photos and videos and quick updates about their loved one changes everything.
As COVID-19 has taken its toll, hospice care has seen a surge. Having used hospice care for both of my parents in the last two years, I am a huge fan and I believe it can save family members a great deal of anxiety during an already difficult time.
Our hospice clients tell us that one of the ways they continually improve care is through the connection they create and grow by communicating with family and other providers via Serenity. Watch below to hear from Dignity Hospice how real-time asynchronous conversation has positively impacted their patients, family members and staff.
