Staying Connected

Social distancing can be especially difficult when a loved one is in hospice care. Families can employ new ways to give love and support at the end of life when they cannot physically be with their loved one. 

Here are a few ways to stay in touch: 

Video chats: Today’s technology, especially the advent of video chatting, allows us to connect in ways previously not possible. This list of video chat apps provides a number of options for the tech savvy and not-so-tech-savvy alike. 

Phone calls: Take some time to call loved ones and let them know you are thinking about them. It’s also a good way to check in with caregivers to see how they are doing. 

Social media: Sending notes and photos through social media channels is another way to keep in touch. 

Cards and letters: Handwritten letters and cards are a tangible way to show love to a family member when you cannot be there in person.
