How to best support family and patient in hospice?
Husbands cousins have admitted their mother into hospice. The mother has requested no visitors or phone calls. I want to honor their wishes, but also know because I have been there how rough of a time it is. I really don't know much. I want to drop off a care package. These are some of the things I have thought of, can you give me your thoughts on whats good or not and any other suggestions?
bought Snacks (chips, frito's, candy, trail mix)
homebaked goodies such as brownies
hand cream for the mother
DvD of comedy tv show...(friends, golden girls, example)
I wanted to take up a lasagna, rolls and dessert for the 2 daughters, but I called hospice where the mother is staying full time, and they don't really have the facilities to put the lasagna until the daughters are ready to go home.
I appreciate any thoughts and what would be good for me to add or to delete.
The two daughters and mother are all very close, and the 3 together have shared many fun, comical, memories together...that is why i am thinking the trashy tabloids on the latest zombie attack, or a comedy tv series would help bring some laughter
