When You Can't Be With A Dying Family Member

What do we do when we can’t be together physically? How can we feel connected? How do express care when can’t be in the same room, give a hug, or hold a hand?

Thank you Deer Creek Assisted Living for allowing Southwest Palliative to host your Valentine’s Day Party. It was an honor!


One of the conversations I enjoy most with the patients I visit is about the visions they see. The other day I was with a gentleman who shared that he has been seeing people in his room, mostly men. He is not afraid of them, they seem like they are there to help him feel less alone.

I asked if he talked to them; he told me he didn't know what to say, so we discussed things he could ask them. He asked me if this meant he was dying soon. My response was that while yes... he is dying, I did not believe they are representative of the time frame. I told him I thought that maybe being near death allowed him to be more receptive to their presence and they knew that, which is why they were there. This seemed an acceptable answer to him.

I saw him again the following day and he told me that he started to talk to them, they didn't say words, but he felt their answers, one of which was that he was safe and not to be afraid, which he welcomed. Then he proceeded to tell me that his two dogs who had passed away came to see him. A tear rolled down his cheek. He said they jumped on his bed and curled up next to him.

I would like to think that when I am near death, my dog Jack will curl up next to me...



What is South west Palliative Care?

The typical meaning of Southwest Palliative Care means end-of-life care. Making sure the person has less suffering and pain, where care focuses on the quality of life rather than its length. It provides humane and compassionate care for people in the last phases of incurable disease so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Southwest Palliative Care is a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers, hospice aides, RN Case Managers, Chaplains, bereavement counselors and volunteers work together to address the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of each patient and family. The Southwest Palliative Care team provides care to patients in their own home or a home-like setting regardless of patient’s age or ability to pay. There are many things to consider when making a decision about Southwest Palliative Care provides specialized care services (patient care including symptom management, emotional support, spiritual support and psychosocial intervention), addressing issues most important to the patient’s needs and wants at the end of their life focusing on improving the individual’s quality of life.



Every so often the process of getting the best care to the patients is delayed because their loved ones either overlooked or did not even realize what a Southwest Palliative Care and Hospice can do for them. The sooner the patient can be referred the faster we can get all the much-needed care to the patient and their loved ones.

At Southwest Palliative Care, we know the important role speedy referrals play in providing excellent care. We not only make the referral process faster and easier but also provide most efficient admissions for our patients so we can start caring for them right away. Here is the most convenient form to refer a patient online or the referral can be made through phone or email securely.
