Taste of Carroll started as a modest idea, as many of the best ones do—a fundraiser featuring food from local establishments to raise money for hospice services.
Families often wonder if the time is right for hospice care for their seriously ill loved ones.
While each person’s situation is different, here are a few indicators that it is time to consider hospice for your loved one:
“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. I am not afraid, but the sensation is like being afraid. The same fluttering in the stomach, the same restlessness, the yawning. I keep on swallowing.”
—C. S. Lewis
After the loss of a loved one, grieving takes a toll on your heart. Memories may trigger outbursts of emotion, sometimes when you may least expect it. Intense emotions can come on unexpectedly and persist. These may include shock, numbness, disorientation, sadness, anger, despair, guilt and emptiness.
