Hospice aides come to work every day to provide the personal care and support needed by those in their last months and weeks of life. Does your agency do enough to honor their work?
"How do you answer a family member when they ask you how much longer their loved one has to live?" It's a tough question, but here's how hospice pioneer Barbara Karnes suggests handling it.

We are thrilled to announce that Barbara Karnes, RN, has graciously agreed to contribute a monthly guest blog just for In the Know readers! Barbara is an internationally recognized author, speaker, thought leader, and expert on end-of-life care and the dynamics of dying.
