Vermont Hospice Care in the News

VNAs of Vermont member agencies provide compassionate hospice care for Vermonters across the state, focused on promoting dignity and quality of life during a person’s last months.

WCAX’s Cat Viglienzoni recently spoke to VNAs of Vermont member agency hospice staff and a family caregiver about what hospice care is and the impact it can have on Vermonters and their family members.

Most Americans want to die at home; Vermont’s home health and hospice agencies can support anyone who is eligible who may wish to live their best lives until the end, in their home, surrounded by loved ones.

There is no wrong time to start talking about hospice care.

Conversations about death can be difficult for many but having these difficult conversations early helps ensure that we have a plan in place for when we’re no longer able to make medical decisions for ourselves.

Everyone’s end-of-life goals are different: the earlier an eligible person starts receiving hospice care, the longer they will receive the support they need to live their best lives with the time they have left.

The benefits of hospice care also extend to the patient’s family and caregivers, helping loved ones prepare, and breakdown fear of death and the end-of-life process.
