Moments in Time
Memoirs of a Hospice Nurse

“Hospice is a program for patients who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and for their caregivers. Hospice never hastens or prolongs death. The goal of hospice care is to improve the quality of a person’s life by controlling their symptoms and keeping them as active in life as possible. In hindsight, families have told me that they would have known about hospice sooner. It would have eased the fear and burden they face. Find a hospice that makes patient care their number one priority.”Matthew E. Brauss, RN, CHPN
