Living with Serious Illness
Living with Serious Illness, sponsored by Hospice of the Valley, is a family caregiver resource and e-library to help the seriously ill and their families learn how to live as comfortably as they can within the context of their disease. Not only are there materials for your clients, but we also provide you with evidence-based research findings, educational resources, and information about training opportunities. We even offer tips for professional self-care to help you avoid burnout and replenish your internal well.
