Introduction

Caring connections, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), is a national consumer engagement initiative to improve care at the end of life, supported by a grant from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Caring Connections:
  • Provides free resources and information to help people make decisions about end-of-life care and services before a crisis.
  • Helps people connect with the resources they need, when they need them.
  • Brings together community, state, and national partners working to improve end-of-life care.
  • Spearheads a national consumer engagement campaign called It’s About How You LIVE.

Caring Connections has created the brochure Ask Tough Questions listing a series of questions to ask your doctor, health care agent, lawyer, a loved one, a spiritual caregiver, and your social worker about end of life care.  Please click here to read it.
