Death and dying

Have you ever had a family member that has died? Did you have to watch them get sicker and sicker until their death? Excuse my bluntness, but did you and your family have to watch them slowly die? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, think about some of the following things. What kind of effect did that have on your family? What kind of effect did that have on you?

A hospice team gets called in for patient when they have 6 or less months left to live. Many people worry about the patient on hospice care and how it will affect them because they are the one’s who are dying. What many people don’t think about is the effect this can have on the family. Having to sit by and watch their family member get sicker and sicker, knowing they are dying. This can certainly take its toll on families as I have witnessed it many times.

  1. Your topic really hits home for me. I recently went through my dad’s passing and hospice care and it was the hardest experience of my life. I really like that this is the topic you chose since its’ a bold one that so many of us go through, yet no one really talks about it. Im excited to see what you post in the future!
