Pain management is an essential aspect of a hospice patient’s care. To effectively manage our patients’ pain, I involve the entire hospice care team—including the patient and his or her family.
Thank you to everyone who has supported this challenge to date. We are so close to the goal; keep it up!

Earlier this year, my mother-in-law, Sandy, died of injuries she sustained in a traumatic fall. The simple task of transferring from her bed to her wheelchair, as she had done hundreds of times before, resulted in a fall causing a brain bleed early one May morning.
