Pathways Hospice Provides Hospice Basics in Seven Different Languages

Hospice Talks Begin with Common Language

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The holidays are a time when families gather and for some though, it may be a time when they are facing the loss of a loved one. Considering hospice and what it may mean for their loved one can be especially challenging at this time of year.

Hospice is never easy to discuss and can be more difficult when there is a language barrier. End-of-life care and customs vary as much as the languages in the multi-ethnic Bay Area.

Pathways Home Health, Hospice & Private Duty offers basic hospice information in seven different languages including English, Chinese, Spanish, Farsi, Tagalog, Russian and Vietnamese on their website. Individuals and families with general questions about hospice, how hospice care works, and what services are provided under hospice care will find answers in this basic brochure.

The Pathways Home Health & Hospice basic hospice brochure is downloadable in all seven languages and easy to understand. It provides patients and their families with information that will help them begin to discuss hospice as a care option. They will also be able to better understand the services provided under hospice care. These services include pain management, symptom control, emotional support and spiritual care to patients and their families as they come to grips with a life-limiting illness.
