Consider hospice services

Regarding your August Family Counselor response to the letter from a person dealing with a terminal illness: I regret it contained no mention of hospice services. Not only does hospice offer services directly to the patient, particularly pain management, but it also addresses the family’s concerns both during the illness and the grief process after the death. As a hospice volunteer, I often hear both patients and/or families say that they wished they had contacted the hospice organization earlier.
