The Hospice Care Plan by Odanata Care

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

As I was going through my End-Of-Life Doula Training Specialist/Educator program, we were introduced to Brenda Kizzire, RN BSN CHPN, and Nancy Heyerman, RN BSN CHPN, Founders of "The Hospice Care Plan by Odanata Care."

Below is their mission, experiences and information on how to obtain the "Hospice Care Plan" booklet, Youtube videos and website. Please share this with all your beloveds, health team and friends who may need support in navigating end of life care.

"Our mission is to Transform the End-of-Life Experience through Education and Support. We do this by recognizing that Care is Treatment, which is our motto. The 4 C's of Calm, Comfortable, Clean, and Cared For, is the path to good end-of-life care. We are certified hospice and palliative nurses with over 50 years of combined hospice experience at the bedside.

Our booklet: The Hospice Care Plan: A Path to Comfort was born out of the recognition for the need of a hands-on / how-to-guide for the hospice patient. This easy-to-use, in-home booklet teaches the basics of symptom & medication management along with how to provide personal care for the hospice patient. Each section of the booklet offers a QR code to a corresponding YouTube playlist of over 200 videos demonstrating care and End-of-Life discussions.

Experience has taught us that we all find our way to death and we do this in the same way as we live. We hold deep compassion and respect for the patient facing end-of-life and for those who provide love and care for them. We hope this booklet and the accompanying videos help ease your way on this path.
