Facing a severe illness or medical condition takes an emotional and physical toll on the entire family. The diagnosis alters the way that an individual feels about his or her lifestyle. It also raises concerns about maintaining a high quality of life during treatment. In a new segment of "Voices In America", professionals within the Hospice field and family members of Hospice patients will be featured to shed light on this important healthcare sector.
Hospice care refers to a type of medical treatment facility that focuses on helping individuals with severe or terminal conditions. It focuses on improving the individual's quality of life through medical services, emotional support and spiritual support. Since it specifically focuses on individuals with terminal or severe illnesses, it also helps individuals cope with the possibility of dying and making arrangements for loved ones.
When individuals enter hospice care programs, they work on improving the quality of their life rather than giving up on their future. Since the program places a strong focus on living a quality lifestyle, it provides a variety of options that help individuals accomplish their goals. For example, some programs offer in-home services or care to assist with basic necessities and healthcare needs.
"Voices in America" with host James Earl Jones will discuss hospice care and the way that it differs from traditional medical treatments. Viewers will learn about the benefits and the possible concerns associated with the program. Consumers can also discover the misconceptions and myths associated with hospice care.
"Voices in America" is a publicly broadcast program for Public Television stations, but it is not affiliated with PBS or APT.
