Mishawaka, Indiana – March 18, 2016 – Unfortunately, lung disease and lung cancer are amongst the leading causes of deaths for Americans each year. It is a scary and anxious time for patients facing end-stage lung disease and their families. At a certain point, patients with a life-limiting illness may decide to forego certain invasive medical treatments in order to focus on obtaining a higher quality of life overall. Hospice for lung cancer patients focuses on alleviating uncomfortable physical and emotional symptoms of a terminal illness so that a patient may spend their remaining time in the peace and comfort of their own home.
In the United States, end-of-life is a topic that is often avoided. Discussing serious illness and death can be uncomfortable. But even though the topic is uncomfortable, having an understanding of end-of-life options such as hospice significantly benefits terminally ill lung cancer and lung disease patients. Harbor Light Hospice offers care in facilities such as a hospice in South Bend, IN in addition to 19 other locations across nine different states. The organization utilizes its national presence to bolster awareness of hospice and palliative care across the county.
Staff from the South Bend, IN hospice location and other locations assisted with the launch of newly released informational articles designed to help patients struggling with lung disease and lung cancer, specifically. Two installments that were widely shared online via social media include, Managing Symptoms and End-of-Life Planning for Lung Disease Patients and Benefits of Hospice for Lung Cancer Patients. Each article focuses on tackling a niche topic that can help to better inform patients and their families.
Harbor Light Hospice hopes that by continuing to create and disseminate useful and accurate information about lung disease, lung cancer, and end-of-life care that more patients and families will begin to utilize hospice care and palliative care nationally.
Patients and families that are interested in learning more about the benefits of hospice care and palliative care can communicate with any Harbor Light Hospice location via its website: https://www.harborlighthospice.com
