Registered nurses are educated to meet the needs of the terminally ill, including symptom control, through their honest and supportive approach. Social workers provide emotional support, psychological counseling and assistance with financial and legal matters. Spiritual counselors offer guidance and support throughout this challenging time. Should the patient need assistance with grooming or household tasks, home health aides are available. Volunteers provide companionship for the patient and respite for caregivers.
