Hospice and Palliative Care: A Good Goodbye 12.18.13

What People Don’t Know About Hospice Can Kill Them

Changing the Way We Die coverMention the word “hospice” and many people think it means a patient is “giving up the fight.” It’s actually all about making the most of the time a seriously-ill patient has, leading to a better quality, and sometimes a greater quantity, of life.

Hospice and palliative care are the topic on A Good Goodbye Radio Wednesday, December 18 at 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. PT. Three special guests will talk about what hospice is (and isn’t); why it’s beneficial to the family as well as the patient; who can access these services; and how hospice and palliative care have changed since these services first appeared in the 1970s.

The guest in the first half hour is Anita Brikman, Senior Vice President for Strategic Communications at NHPCO, the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. Her personal commitment to raising public awareness of hospice and palliative care stems from her own life-changing experiences. Her father’s death due to colon cancer in 1998 marked her family’s first encounter with hospice.

In the second half of the program, the guests are Fran Smith and Sheila Himmel, co-authors of the new book, Changing the Way We Die: Compassionate End-of-Life Care and the Hospice Movement. They both encountered good deaths and bad deaths in their families, which spurred them to turn their journalistic talents to the topic of hospice. Together, they write the Psychology Today blog, Changing The Way We Die.

Listeners are invited to call in with their questions and stories during the second half of the program. The toll-free number is 866-404-6519.

Upcoming programs feature The Conversation Project with Martha Hayward (Dec. 25 – rebroadcast of an earlier show); Estate planning issues with attorney Jim Plitz (Jan. 1 – a rebroadcast to help start your New Year’s resolution to get your affairs in order); Allison Copening with Seasons Funeral Planning Services (Jan. 4); Pet hospice with Kathryn Marocchino, Ph.D., FT (Jan. 22); and the Frozen Dead Guy Days festival with Amanda MacDonald (Jan. 29).

A Good Goodbye is an entertaining and educational weekly 60-minute online radio show on “everything you need to know before you go.” A Good Goodbye program podcasts can be downloaded from iTunes, from Toginet Radio and from AGoodGoodbye.com.

You can also download a free checklist of what your loved ones need to know before you go at Gail Rubin's website, AGoodGoodbye.com.

    Calmness oakley pas cher came back to me after I had made this decision. toms outlet And coach outlet when I michael kors outlet went up on lacoste pas cher deck I knew that I had been right. They had not nike air max seen the nike air max Dweller. They were still discussing the darkening of the ship, talking of dynamos burned out, wires nike roshe run short new balance pas cher circuited, a half dozen true religion outlet explanations of the extinguishment. Not prada outlet until noon lululemon outlet was north face jackets Throckmartin’s absence discovered. I told the jordan shoes captain that I had left him early in nike roshe the air jordan evening; true religion jeans that, iphone 6 case indeed, I knew supra shoes him but slightly, after all. It occurred to none to michael kors outlet online doubt me, or to question me minutely. Why polo ralph lauren outlet should insanity workout it have? abercrombie and fitch His hollister strangeness had louboutin been noted, commented upon; all who nike air max had met him had thought him half mad. louis vuitton pas cher I did little to ray ban sunglasses discourage the impression. tory burch outlet online And so it michael kors outlet store came herve leger naturally that on the ray ban log it was entered tn pas cher that he had nike air max fallen or leaped from the vessel some time during the night.

    A report to this effect was made when we entered tiffany jewelry Melbourne. I slipped quietly nike free pas cher ashore and cheap oakley sunglasses in the new balance outlet press of the christian louboutin shoes war news Throckmartin’s supposed fate soccer jerseys won only celine handbags a few reebok shoes lines in the newspapers; my own presence ray ban uk on the ship longchamp pas cher and coach outlet store online in the city passed unnoticed.

    I louis vuitton outlet was fortunate in ferragamo shoes securing at Melbourne everything I needed except a louis vuitton set of Becquerel ray condensers air max — but these sac michael kors were the very hollister canada keystone of gucci my equipment. Pursuing my search to burberry outlet online Sydney I was doubly fortunate in finding a jimmy choo shoes firm who scarpe hogan were expecting these very articles in a consignment due them from vans outlet the michael kors handbags States within a fortnight. lululemon outlet online I kate spade outlet online settled ralph lauren down in strictest seclusion to north face await pandora uk their lancel arrival.

    And longchamp handbags now michael kors canada it will occur to you louis vuitton outlet to ask montre femme why I did pandora jewelry not cable, during this period of timberland shoes waiting, ray ban pas cher to the Association; demand sac vanessa bruno aid from it. Or air max why wedding dresses I did not call upon members mont blanc pens of the nike free University staffs hollister of louis vuitton handbags either Melbourne converse or Sydney for assistance. At the abercrombie and fitch least, guess pas cher why I did instyler ionic styler not gather, as Throckmartin had hoped longchamp outlet online to louis vuitton do, asics shoes a coach purses little chi flat iron force baseball bats of strong air max pas cher men to go longchamp outlet with me to the Nan–Matal.

    That fortnight and the greater part of another passed longchamp before the ship nike air max I kate spade outlet awaited steamed into port. nike air force By that soccer shoes time, between nike blazer pas cher my straining anxiety vans to be vans pas cher after Throckmartin, the despairing thought nike roshe that every replica watches moment of delay might be vital to him and his, and my chanel handbags intensely eager desire to chaussure louboutin know whether nike outlet that p90x workout shining, swarovski jewelry glorious horror hollister clothing on mac cosmetics the moon path christian louboutin outlet did exist or red bottom shoes had been hallucination, karen millen I oakley sunglasses was louis vuitton canada worn almost to nike trainers the edge of madness.

    At last the condensers were in my nfl jerseys hands. It was true religion outlet more than a week later, louis vuitton outlet online however, before I could secure passage back to Port oakley vault Moresby and it ghd was another week still before oakley I true religion started north on swarovski uk the nike free Suwarna, a swift little sloop with a fifty-horsepower auxiliary, heading straight for Ponape and the timberland Nan–Matal.

    We hollister sighted the Brunhilda some christian louboutin five hundred miles south of the Carolines. polo ralph lauren The bottega veneta wind michael kors uk had fallen soon after Papua had dropped astern. The Suwarna’s ability to make her north face pas cher twelve knots gucci handbags an hour sac louis vuitton without it ralph lauren pas cher had giuseppe zanotti made me wedding dress very fully forgive links of london uk her for coach outlet not babyliss being as beats headphones fragrant as the Javan michael kors outlet online sale flower ralph lauren for which she was named. Da louis vuitton uk Costa, her captain, was juicy couture outlet a garrulous hermes pas cher Portuguese; his mate michael kors outlet online was a Canton mulberry uk man with all the marks of long and able service replica watches on some pirate junk; his engineer was tiffany and co jewelry a longchamp half-breed nike huarache China–Malay burberry pas cher who converse shoes had birkin bag picked prada handbags up his knowledge of power plants, Heaven alone knew where, mcm handbags and, I pandora charms had ray ban outlet reason to believe, had hollister transferred all valentino shoes his religious impulses to the north face jackets American built deity coach outlet of burberry outlet online mechanism he so faithfully served. juicy couture outlet The crew thomas sabo uk was made up of six huge, converse pas cher chattering Tonga boys.
