Did you feel the recent earthquakes in Orange County? Hospice Touch is joining the California Shake Out to ensure that we are prepared in the event of a natural disaster.

"The Great California Shake Out is an annual opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes: 'Drop, Cover and Hold On.' The ShakeOut has also been organized to encourage you, your community, your school, or your organization to review and update emergency preparedness plans and supplies, and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries" (Earthquake Country Alliance).

Benefits of Hospice on quality of life

It has been shown that hospice and palliative care patients live an average of one month longer than terminally ill patients who do not choose hospice care. A 2007 study that considered six disease categories showed that four of the six had longer lengths of survival.


A study in 2010 published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that lung cancer patients receiving early palliative care lived 23.3% longer than those who put off palliative care. The study theorized that the outcome of earlier referral to hospice may improve the management of symptoms resulting in lengthened survival.
