About the Alive Hospice Blog
Hospice has helped millions¬†of terminally ill patients and their families in the United States over the last few decades.¬†Still, though hospice is a word many people have heard, it’s not always understood.
What is hospice care?
Who¬†does it help, and how?
Who are the people who provide this care?
Why (and how) do they do what they do?
The purpose of the Alive Hospice Blog is to answer these questions and more. Our hope: to help others gain a better understanding of hospice care and grief support so that they might benefit from them.
What you‚Äôll find here: insights, thoughtful commentary and good information about end-of-life care and grief support. This blog examines the end-of-life journey from a variety of perspectives: the physiological, the emotional and the spiritual. New posts appear each week.
Founded in 1975, Alive Hospice provides loving care to people with life-threatening illnesses, support to their families and service to the community in a spirit of enriching lives. Alive Hospice, a nonprofit agency, serves 12 Middle Tennessee counties: Bedford, Cannon, Cheatham, Coffee, Davidson, DeKalb, Dickson, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson and Wilson. Alive Hospice, a nonprofit agency, was one of the nation’s earliest hospice programs. It was founded just one year after the first hospice in the United States was founded in Connecticut.
We hope you‚Äôll join in the conversation.
