    COMPASSION EMPATHY AND SENSITIVITY-JIM BOUCHARD ON HOSPICE AND HOME CARE

    in Culture

    Our guest, Jim Bouchard, is the Director of Marketing & Development for Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice (AHCH). Your hosts, Burl and Merry, received compassionate support in caring for Burl’s mother, Mary Ann Hall, during the final months of her life from AHCH.  In gratitude, we wish to share the empatheic and responsive care Mary Ann and we, as caregivers, received with our listeners.


    AHCH “cares for the health, independence, and quality of life of Maine residents and their families in the comfort of their home and community.  When a person is ill or homebound, the power to heal involves more than medical treatment. It's also the touch of a hand or the warmth of a smile.”  The agency has a longstanding community service mission focused on building and sustaining a continuum of in-home services to address the acute, long-term and end-of-life care needs of individuals and their families. 


    Hospice emphasizes palliative rather than curative treatment; quality rather than quantity of life. The dying are comforted. Professional medical care is given, and sophisticated symptom relief provided. Hospice affirms life and regards dying as a normal process. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. 


    We are especially moved by the final days Mary Ann and we spent at Hospice House, thoughtfully designed to be sensitive to the needs of patients and their families, "allowing family members to be relieved of the role of caregiver and focus solely on gathering together to support their loved one.”

    Camille Adair, Hospice Nurse, Filmmaker & Visionary

    in Health

    Camille Adair is a registered nurse, filmmaker and entrepreneur.  After the 2008 premier of her documentary film, "Solace: Wisdom of the Dying", Camille completed the Solace Teachings, a documentary series with accompanying training materials focused on end of life, hospice and palliative care. 
    The Solace Teachings are an excellent tool for healthcare organizations, community groups and anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of death and dying.
    Based on her career in hospice and palliative care, Camille’s passion for creative healthcare solutions led her to create FairCare, a sustainable healthcare model based on the principles of the triple bottom line, where businesses consider their relationship to the planet, people and profit.
    Camille joins a growing number of like-hearted colleagues who are committed to positive change and a new healthcare paradigm based in environmental justice, social equity and the impacts of the aging population contrasted by the shrinking healthcare workforce.

    Hospice. When it's appropriate and how to choose an agency

    in Caregiving

    Tonights broadcast deals with a very emotional time for most everyone.  It's what I like to call, "The last great adventure." 
    I recently saw a quote the I felt was so appropriate to discuss what hospice is. "Hospice doesn't help you die as much as it helps you finish living." (author unknown)
    When the end of the life cycle is near, choosing a hospice is often uncharted territory for most of us.
    Tonight my guest is the owner of a local hospice agency.  Together we will take some of the guesswork away when it comes to hospice.
    We will be discussing when hospice is appropriate, the various things people should know when choosing a hospice agency, and what is reasonable to expect from your hospice agency.
