A Social Workers Role in Hospice

Each and every day social workers throughout the world work tirelessly to make our society a better place to live. Lending their expertise, talent, and tenacity to those who need it most. In March, we celebrate National Social Worker’s Month, and this lends as an opportunity to shine the spotlight on those who work in hospice care.

When we witness a loved one in their last few months of life it can be difficult on many levels, but a hospice social worker strives to help both patients and their families through the end-of-life process. The hospice team, which includes a licensed social worker, treats each patient as a whole, addressing their needs-physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The social worker, who’s assigned a patient upon admission, also helps loved-ones and caregivers navigate the practical and emotional issues that arise throug

At CompassionCare Hospice patient and family care are top priority. “Family” can mean a lot of different things too many people, and isn’t always blood related. Family can include a close friend, loved-one, caregiver, or even a pet. When a patient passes with CompassionCare Hospice and there is no one to look after their furry friend anymore, our staff continue the role as caregiver to these beloved animals.

Ladies, Get Heart Healthy!

CompassionCare Hospice

Original Post URL: http://cchlv.com/ladies-get-heart-healthy/

February marks National Heart Health Month and there are some important facts to know.

More fatal then all the different types of cancer combined, heart disease effects more women than men, surprising to most. While one in 31 American women dies from breast cancer each year, heart disease is the cause of one out of every three deaths. And it effects women of all ages too, according to the American Heart Association.

For those younger, smoking cigarettes and taking birth control ups the risk of heart disease by 20 percent. Of course with age our risk automatically goes up, but not taking care of ourselves physically and over indulging can lead to clogged arteries later in life. Being born with an underlying heart condition also puts those at a high risk for the disease.

Just because you may show no symptoms, doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. Sixty-four percent

Holiday Table Talk

CompassionCare Hospice

Original Post URL: http://cchlv.com/holiday-table-talk/

The holiday season always brings families together and can serve as a prime opportunity to have a conversation about what you and your loved ones want at the end of life. Some of the considerations you may discuss can include: the use of a breathing machine, starting dialysis, if you want to be resuscitated if you stop breathing, feeding tubes, or whether or not you wish to donate your organs someday.

Every year, some 12 million Americans need home services due to illness, disability, or end-of-life care. Seventy percent of Americans say they would prefer to die at home, but nearly 70 percent pass away in hospital and institutions. Ninety percent of Americans know they should have conversations about end-of-life care, yet only 30 have actually done so.

Having a plan and making concrete decisions not only relieves your loved-0nes of these tough calls, but it also ensures that d
