or, what do we need to know as a compassionate companion?
Many of the questions we have about caring for someone who is dying involve the signs and symptoms leading up to their actual death.What will we see? When will we know that death is close? What can we do to help?
Barbara Karnes popular booklet, Gone From my Sight, has helped thousands recognize and understand some of the common experiences of the dying. In this video of Barbara sponsored by the US Heartland Hospice, she shares her vast knowledge and practical wisdom as a hospice palliative care nurse.
The 2015 AHPCA Roadshow “The Final Journey:Becoming a Compassionate Companion” has been created to help professionals, volunteers, caregivers, and family members learn more about this rewarding yet challenging task – helping someone as they live the end of life.
