Abstract

In the current healthcare system, family caregiving usually is at the core of end-of-life care. The home health clinician can play an important role in easing the burdens often experienced by the caregiver. This relationship may provide some challenges and some opportunities. This article describes some potentially helpful interventions that home health clinicians can use to improve the experiences of patients and caregivers.
