Are You a Caregiver?

Donate to HFAWhen a loved one is dying, family members and other loved ones are suddenly thrust into the role of caregiver with little preparation, and without knowing what to expect. Hospice can help.

The Caregiver's Section offers practical tools, reading suggestions, and tips on caregiving for persons near the end-of-life.  Most of this information is useful under other caregiving situations. 

So whether you are a paid caregiving professional or someone new to the caregiving experience, we at Hospice Foundation of America hope that the Caregiver's Section will serve as a helpful source of information for you.
