Hospice Disease Education

Compassionate disease education helps you understand and respond to transitions your loved one passes through as he or she approaches the end of life. Indiana University Health staff members are compassionate experts in teaching caregivers and family members to recognize stages in a patient’s life-limiting illness. Understanding normal changes as they happen may help you, your family and your loved one feel less anxious about the hospice care.

IU Health offers hospice disease education in a variety of settings. Education for patients and families in the home or a care center allows them to learn what they need to know at appropriate times. In-service programs for caregivers provide valuable information about supporting their family through the end-of-life process as well as teach them how to take care of their own needs. We also make speakers available to educate the community about hospice care services.

Providing appropriate and timely disease education is part of our mission to surround patients and their families with comprehensive care.
