Synopsis by Alice Day
This program is a valuable resource for those who want an explanation of what a hospice offers. When a loved one is terminally ill, and cannot be cared for at home, the answer can be a facility that specializes in such care. The Heart of the New Age Hospice interviews staff members of a hospice, which include a doctor, a nurse, a chaplain, and a home health aide. Through their collective efforts, the individual is kept as comfortable as possible during their stay. Volunteer workers who provide extra support and families who have utilized hospice services also offer their commentary.
