WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization serves individuals and families who are facing serious illness, death, and grief and also represent hospice and palliative care programs and professionals in the United States. We are committed to improving end of life care and expanding access to hospice care with the goal of profoundly enhancing quality of life for people dying in America and their loved ones.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
Decisions about end-of-life care are deeply personal. Though it can be difficult to do, having conversations that focus on the patient's wishes and beliefs will ultimately relieve loved ones and healthcare providers of the need to guess what they would want.
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?
CaringInfo, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, provides free resources to help people make decisions about end-of-life care and services before a crisis.
We also offer many resources that help educate the public and health professionals about end-of-life care including conferences, webinars, webcasts, online courses, and learning modules.
