Help for Families Facing a Tough Reality

The misconception is that hospice care means that death is imminent, but Mandy Merkel says that is not the case.

Merkel is a certified geriatric care manager in the Atlanta area. She helps guide families and advise them on their options when a loved one starts to decline. However, hospice does not have to be the end.

“I’ve had people come off of hospice because they’ve done so well. You don’t have to stay there until you die,” Merkel said.

She believes families start thinking about hospice when they have a specific answer to a question about their loved one’s care.
