Welcome to Notre Dame Hospice’s Caregiver’s Blog

Welcome to our Caregiver’s Blog. We’re happy you’re visiting. We provide quality, compassionate health care and support services in a Christian environment. One which respects the uniqueness of each person, promotes and enhances the quality of life, and preserves dignity in life, illness and death. We created this site for all who are caring for someone facing a serious illness. Our goal is to give you a place you can turn to find information, resources, advice and support as you experience one of the most rewarding and challenging journeys of your life.

We’d like help bring faith, hope and love to those we serve. We believe that quality of life is tied to what matters most to each person. So we focus on giving our patients the important option of how to live with advancing illness in their own way. As a caregiver, we also focus on you, helping you have the support, tools, knowledge and resources you need to fulfill this important role you’ve embarked upon.

Through our Caregiver’s Blog, we’ll share insights and experiences from those who have been in your shoes. And provide you with information on options and choices in end of life care. Our main message to you, whether you’re caring for someone with advanced illness or are facing a serious illness yourself, is that you are not alone.

We’re here to bring comfort, choices and options. We want to empower you and your loved ones to live more fully, more completely and more in control. As you consider hospice, it will help to understand how hospice care can support the many needs of your loved ones and what support hospice can offer you and others in your family. To us it is about faith, hope and love.  It is when it becomes less about the illness and more about life.
