No family looks forward to facing the end of life with a loved one. Challenges for family caregivers run the gamut from physical and emotional strain to psychological stress. This webinar will provide resources and strategies for senior care professionals to share with families to educate them about hospice and palliative care, and help them better cope with the physical, emotional and psychological stress of dealing with end-of-life issues.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Explain the difference between hospice and palliative care;
  • Describe the most common medical conditions referred to in hospice; and,
  • Identify members of the hospice team.
