When you have a loved one under Hospice care, you never know what challenges will greet you with each day and how you’ll need to adapt. Having a supply of common and uncommon tools at your disposal for home hospice care makes a world of difference in how prepared and confident you feel. Read on for my go-to list of supplies I’ve discovered I needed along the way.

He was fairly independent until two months ago when his doctors diagnosed end-stage COPD and he was entered into a home hospice care program. We don’t have a terminal prognosis yet. There are still a lot of good days along with the bad but he needs continuous care. Prior to my brother’s illness, in 2012, a sister received a terminal three-month prognosis of lung cancer. My brother, another sister, and I flew to Wisconsin to care for her. This is my second round of caregiving and I’ve learned a lot along the way.
