Answer

One option for learning about Hospice is the Hospice Education Institute, a non-profit organization that helps patients and their families find support services in their communities. They offer information about hospice and palliative care and can refer cancer patients and their families to local hospice and palliative care programs. 

Toll-free Hospicelink number: 800-331-1620 

Services offered include:

  • Referral to local hospices and palliative care programs in the U.S.
  • General info about the principles and practices of good hospice and palliative care and related end-of-life servcies.
  • "Sympathetic listening" and support for patients, family members and caregivers coping with the many difficult problems caused by advanced illness and bereavement.
