End of Life Care: Direct Care Staff

Recorded On: 02/13/2020

As the population ages, medical advances are keeping Americans alive longer. In 1950 the average American was only expected to live to be about 68! Today the average life expectancy is 82! This educational session was developed to assist you, the caregiver, in helping a dying resident transition through the dying process and ease them to a peaceful death by understanding the dying process and the importance of respecting each resident’s individual wishes. Always remember, although it is difficult,  it is a privilege to provide care to residents at their end of life and you are their source of care and comfort. This 30 minute program was developed to assist you, the direct caregiver, in ensuring your residents are provided with appropriate end-of-life care
