Topic:

Most Americans wish to die at home. However only 25 percent actually do so. Most are referred to palliative care and hospice too late to affect quality of life and to better prepare for death, which leaves families confused and unprepared. Judy Barbiero is joined by a patient's wife,Grace Sorrell along with her hospice nurse, Flora Sklar. She gives families and caregivers practical advice on how palliative and hospice care can assist their dying loved ones.
