Hospice care helps make the end of life the best it can be, yet the experience can be both rewarding and stressful to those involved. Karen Clayton’s stories address end-of-life choices, palliative care, mixed feelings about hospice, care for the caregivers, managing dramatic incidents and fear, social isolation, saying goodbye, and remembering.

Karen J. Clayton is a social worker and sociologist. Her writing interests focus currently on demystifying hospice to encourage patients, caregivers and other family members, educators, and administrators to better understand the practical workings of hospice and to use it in a timelier manner. Clayton is an active member of the Oak Harbor Writers Group, and the American Association of University Woman, Island County, Washington. She taught sociology and cross-cultural communication at the University of Texas, Tarrant County Junior College, Southwestern Adventist University, and La Sierra University, where she was also the Education Curator for the Stahl Center Museum of Culture (Riverside, CA).
