How Conversations - and Policy - are Changing
The photo used in today's blog: Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil... is symbolic for difficult conversations that need to take place before making educated decisions. One such decision is how we want to be treated when faced with serious illness. Last week Medicare announced it will begin paying doctors in 2016 to have end-of-life care conversations with their patients. Here's a great video of experts talking about how this conversation begins and what comes next in terms of options, hospice, affordability and more. Please watch and look for more Niagara Hospice Blog posts in the future.
