When time's too short,
how do your teams teach hospice caregivers?
How can you equip them to do it better?

For Short Length of Stay (LOS)
Hospice Patients

  • Do caregivers instantly "get it" (what's going on and what to do) during your team members' expert, compassionate visits?

  • Do they adjust immediately to drastic end-of-life changes?

  • Do key family and friends get in synch with the person's shortened time?
Or, do they "get it" in many mini-moments after the visit, when caregivers and family members process information from your hospice team?

Individually and together, they ...

  • Replay it in their heads and hearts, trying to make sense of it all
  • Wade through floods of emotion
  • Make time-sensitive decisions
  • Tend needs
  • Talk with family and friends
  • Communicate with the hospice team about changes they see and what they might mean
As individuals and as a family, they are having to reshape what to hope and how to cope.
Does teaching matter, when time is so short?
Without teaching caregivers, patients' needs can go unnoticed and unmet.

With teaching, caregivers can learn how to give care, just in time.

With teaching, family members can learn "it's time" to gather, to remember the past and prepare for the future, while there's still time.

Still, time runs its course.

And, three months later ...
The CAHPS-Hospice Survey asks these caregivers about training they received for so many needs at such a short, brief time.

Yes, teaching matters.
Teaching is more than telling.
Learning is more than listening.
Yes, teaching caregivers is crucial during hospice team visits. There are no substitutes for your all-important team interactions of education and support.

And, yes! You can ignite many more "get it" learning moments for the caregiver and family's many mini-moments between hospice visits and calls.
