"Dear Odonata Care

Thank you for your excellent hospice resources in print and on video. They gave us the knowledge and confidence we needed to support our mom during her transition.

"This is excellent! It’s simple and easy to read and understand. It would be great to have for our families - they forget our instructions! This would be a great tool to have on hand. Having had personal hospice experience, I would have liked to have a resource like this!"


Founder and Chief Medical Officer Institute for Human Caring at Providence St. Joseph Health, Author of Dying Well and The Best Care Possible

“Hospice nurses, Heyerman and Kizzire, write from years of caring experience. A Path to Comfort is filled with practical wisdom. Down-to-earth and loving, this booklet is a gift to anyone caring for a person who is approaching the end of life.“ 


Dept. of Psychosocial Oncology and Palliative Care, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Professor of Psychiatry and Medicine, Harvard Medical School

"A Path to Comfort is a practical, compassionate, meticulous, and detailed guide to help families manage the day-to-day care of a loved one in hospice care, from the perspective of two nurses who have provided bedside care to hospice patients for decades. It provides step-by-step directions for such ‘simple’ processes as cleaning or turning a patient, which can often feel overwhelming to family members doing it for the first time. By providing this thoughtful guidance to the caregiver, it can make what sometimes feels impossible—providing superb care to a dying loved one—feel possible, thus boosting the morale of the caregiver and enhancing the care of the person who is ill. It is designed to supplement and synergize with the care offered in the home by a hospice program.”

As an Ordained Interfaith Minister and End-Of-Life Doula Specialist, I have found “The Hospice Care Plan” videos to be an essential resource in my practice and will be shared with my clients, fellow ministers, family and friends. Those of us who need visual instruction will find these videos to be beneficial in keeping our beloveds comfortable, clean, safe and nurtured. The videos created by two hospice nurses, cover various and important hospice topics such as breathing, medications, bed bound patients, anxiety and pain management to name a few. The Hospice Care Plan: A Path to Comfort booklet  is equally useful as you are navigating the day-to-day care and tasks of your patients, loved one or client. I highly recommend their website, booklet and videos while caregiving and giving care to those you love.
