When The Time Comes

Get prepared for “When the Time Comes”

One of the most important ways Hospice of the Panhandle surrounds you and your loved ones with support is by educating you on the end-of-life process so that you are confident in caring for your loved one. When the Time Comes is a booklet that shares information about the dying process, from what to expect to what you can do to help your loved one be most comfortable. While each person’s journey is unique, this booklet pulls together the most common steps along the way so that you can be best prepared to aid your loved one during this time.
