Ten facts you may not know about hospice

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization has released a new video series that aims to teach more people what hospice is and how to plan for hospice care. The videos are a great resource for people who are new to hospice, as well as for hospice professionals and caregivers who want to help others understand the mission of hospice.


One video in the series offers ten facts about hospice that can help family members and others understand what hospice means, how hospice is managed, and the core values of hospice. 

The videos are a part of the NHPCO’s Moments of Life – Made Possible by Hospice campaign that shares some of the real stories of individuals who are among the 1.6 million terminally ill people who are served by hospices in the United States every year. 

If you are looking for a way to explain what hospice truly means, and the amount of hope and support it can bring to patients and their families, these videos could be a great way to start the conversation.
