This past week our speaker was Sue Dale from The Care Team. The Care Teams’ main focus is helping people provide hospice care for terminally ill patients so they can transition from this world with dignity. She mentioned that hospice care is available to those with less than six months to live and the cost of hospice care can often be absorbed by Medicare. The main determinant for receiving hospice care is whether a disease or condition the patient has been diagnosed with is curable. This is not an easy subject to discuss, but one that should probably be addressed before we or a loved one are confronted with a terminal illness. Sue spoke passionately about her work and did a terrific job discussing a difficult subject.
