How To Spend Time With Someone Who Is in Hospice Care

Having a loved one is in hospice care can be a difficult reality to handle. On one hand, them being in hospice care can make your loved one seem a bit removed from your life or family matters. However, they are still the same person with the same interests and hobbies, regardless of their stay in hospice. To better understand this, try considering how you might feel if you were in their position. If you were in hospice care, wouldn’t you want your friends and family to visit and have an enjoyable time with you? That’s why finding ways to make the most of your time spent with them is so rewarding. Taking some time to plan out a few activities prior to each visit can help strengthen the bond you have with your loved one and make them feel more comfortable with their overall experience in hospice care.

The next time you find yourself wondering how to spend time with someone who is in hospice care, consider the following activity examples and implement them into your visit accordingly.

What To Bring to Someone in Hospice Care

Figuring out how to spend time with someone who is in hospice care can sometimes include bringing them things that they otherwise wouldn’t have outright access to anymore. If they miss your cooking or baking, bring them a home-cooked meal or freshly baked goodies to warm their spirits. If they enjoy travel or a hobby that they can no longer participate in, bring some memorabilia or photographs to spark up a conversation about fond memories. You can also use the opportunity to bring in something unexpected that you think they might enjoy or that reminded you of them.


Activities To Do With Someone in Hospice Care

Sometimes, visiting doesn’t have to be about sitting and talking; instead, it can involve various fun activities. For something that involves active engagement for everyone, try playing bingo, painting, crafting, or putting a puzzle together. These activities are great for creating a fun environment and engaging everyone involved in the visit. For an activity that’s a bit more relaxing, try reading a book or watching a movie together. Laid-back activities are best for creating a calm and comforting environment.
