This is an important issue of Advances in Hospice.  Veterans make up a large proportion of the patients we serve.  And until recently, we did not realize the special medical and emotional issues they face.  Many hospices have enrolled in the We Honor Veterans program.  But there is so much more to do.  This issue attempts to cover some of the important issues all hospice staff and volunteers should understand.

Our readers want ideas they can put into action to serve hospice patients and their families better.  This issue provides such ideas.  Tim Lister has written an article on serving the developmentally disabled clients so many of you have asked us about.  And Sunday Conine tells us ~ step-by-step ~ how to host a golf tournament for hospice.  But your hearts will be touched by our Hospice Hero, Mike Denen, who wrote two stories of his own volunteer experiences.  He reminds us all why we are here!

This issue of Advances in Hospice focuses on a relatively new therapy that has implications for the life-review process most hospices foster.  Dignity Therapy was developed by Canadian researcher Harvey Max Chochinov.  His methods are explained and a review of his book by someone who has used his protocol is included.  We finish with another reprint of a delightful blog entry by Stan Goldberg called “Understanding Aging:  We're Not Children”.

Call us crazy but we don't shy away for difficult issues at Advances in Hospice.  The fact that hospices serve individuals of all religious traditions makes the position of Spiritual Coordinator a difficult one.  Rev. Tim Lister gives us guidance on how to serve such a variety of individuals with respect.  Then two articles look at the touchy issue of euthanasia from different perspectives.  Whew!

It's a problem found in all hospices.  Because we encourage personalized, tender care; boundaries are frequently getting trampled.  This fact makes “Boundaries in the Touchy-Feely World of Hospice” essential.  This packed issue also contains step by step instructions for a children's grief camp, how trauma affects children and some delightful out of the box fundraising ideas from Great Britain.

What a packed issue this is!  Children's Lighthouse of Minnesota shared with us the process of planning, funding and eventually opening a children's hospice.  Since there were previously only two in the entire United States, this is important information.  The issue also contains a useful article on “Taming Team Tensions” and our first Hospice Hero from Great Britain.

The inaugural issue of Advances in Hospice started off with a bang.  Internationally famous bereavement expert Dr. Alan Wolfelt wrote for us an important article concerning the need to companion our loved ones all the way to the grave.  He helps us all to understand why this is so important to a successful bereavement.  We also deal with the joyful task of bringing music to the dying.  This issue is a keeper!
