A growing, curated collection of topics of interest
Resources for Caregivers
- Offering Care for the Caregiver
It has been shown that (office-based) doctors "listen" to their patients an average of 18 seconds, before interrupting. It's actually easier to listen to the patient and especially the caregiver, in the home environment. After all, a (wo)man's home is his or her castle. What fool would dare not listen intently to a King or a Queen?
End of Life topics
- Coverage for End-of-Life Talks Gaining Ground
In home medical care, end of life discussions are rarely just the Big One. Rather, the important stuff comes out little by little as trust is built over time. Nor need the practitioner necessarily always initiate these conversations. Ask for what you need! Please also see the book review of Being Mortal on this Website.
