Virtual outreach: Grief support and caring in a pandemic

CCH-1
Clockwise, April Coleman and Christa Motley are joined by Tina Maxson and Jeffrey Parsons of Capital Caring Health.

 

Losing a loved one is heartbreaking. 

However, during the end of a life’s journey oftentimes comfort may be found in the caring process.

Patients and their caregivers are not alone when healthcare professionals are at hand to help them through this transition — oftentimes extending encouraging words, hugs, hand holding and laughter.

But in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, finding closure in the normal sense has broken down and been redefined.

With social distancing and stay at home measures, healthcare providers must adjust their approach to outreach care by implementing precautions to protect their dedicated and compassionate staff while still delivering the highest quality care to people in need.

Capital Caring Health is the largest and leading non-profit provider of advanced illness, hospice, grief support and at-home care services.
