Hospice Foundation of America Launches Hospice and Caregiving Blog
Washington, September 26, 2007 --- Hospice Foundation of America today launched the Hospice and Caregiving Blog, www.hospicefoundation.org/blog
, to provide information and resources to hospice and other medical professionals, as well as to caregivers who share in the end-of life experience.
“Our goals are to inform, offer support, and generate online discussion of important end-of life issues," said David Abrams, HFA's president and CEO. "As the population ages and knowledge of hospice care and end-of-life issues for all ages increases, HFA is well-positioned to gather, disseminate, and facilitate information sharing.
“The information on this blog, drawn from some of the best sources in the field with links to additional useful resources, can potentially benefit millions of people looking for the latest support materials about end-of-life care at a single Internet destination,” Abrams said.
HFA has always worked to find innovative ways to reach hospice professionals and caregivers where they do their work. Fifteen years ago HFA developed the National Bereavement Teleconference, which educates tens of thousands of professionals and caregivers each year, and now HFA is using the most current technology to continue its educational mission.
HFA's blog will cover a variety of subjects, including but not limited to aging, caregiving, grief, hospice and palliative care, and stories about patients and caregivers. Articles and stories are indexed for easy reference. Bloggers have the opportunity to post a comment, share ideas, or ask other bloggers for feedback.
Hospice Foundation of America is a non-profit organization that exists to help those who cope personally or professionally with terminal illness, death, and the process of grief and bereavement.
