Dignity at End of Life

During our lifetime we all do the best we can do and as we age and become fragile, we can use support. Our family members do the best they can for us and there are also professional organizations available in many Countries.

” With almost 5 million residents age 60 and older, Florida has the highest population percentage of seniors in the nation. At the Department of Elder Affairs, one of our goals is to honor and celebrate our elders. We do that not just through our services and by promoting positive views of aging overall, but also through special initiatives and events. We created this podcast to share the legacies of our elders as they discuss their amazing life experiences, contributions, and wisdom. ” This department of Elder Affairs is currently chaired by Susan Ponder-Stansel, who also chairs the Community Hospice of Northeast Florida.

” What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a specialized care designed to provide support to you and your loved ones during an advanced illness. Hospice care focuses on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure. The goal of hospice care is to enable you to have an alert, pain-free life … to live each day as fully as possible. Hospice care affirms life and views death as a natural process.

Community Hospice is there for you, providing compassionate care and knowledgeable guidance every step of the journey. Experienced physicians, nurses and other professional caregivers offer personalized choices for where you can receive care, up-to-date approaches to pain and symptom management, and peace of mind to help you live better with your illness. ”
