THE CARE PLAN: A Path to Comfort, by Odonata Care LLC, at www.thecareplan.net has revolutionized the hospice experience around the country by improving the standard of care, alleviating anxiety with families and patients, and significantly reducing the number and urgency of after-hours calls.
The authors, Brenda Kizzire, RN BSN CHPN, and Nancy Heyerman, RN BSN CHPN have been caring for hospice patients and their families in Oregon for over 40 years. THE CARE PLAN was born out of the challenges they experienced in supporting and educating hospice clients – especially the distressed calls, day and night, from anxious caregivers, family members and patients asking questions many times over.
THE CARE PLAN effectively empowers patients and the care circle with valuable information that can be accessed anytime, along with HOW-TO VIDEOS demonstrating personal care. When used as the centerpiece for hospice care, THE CARE PLAN a) significantly improves CAPHS scores; b) meets upcoming and changing Medicare guidelines; decreases triage & after-hours calls; recruits and educates nurses new to hospice and end of life care. When used in all hospice settings, THE CARE PLAN has shown to provide a) an easy hands-on workbook for medication management; b) simple-to-follow instructions for addressing and alleviating common symptoms; c) resources and tools, including short videos, that guide and educate all involved through a compassionate end-of-life process. Please view this Webinar to learn more about how THE CARE PLAN works.

MedCure is a leading AATB accredited non-transplant tissue bank, devoted to the compassionate and ethical treatment of each of our donors. We act as a bridge between people wanting to donate their bodies to science with the medical communities that depend on them to improve the health and lives of others. Together, these donors and medical professionals make lasting impacts on the future of medicine.
Donation through MedCure is a no cost end-of-life option. Upon acceptance, MedCure covers all fees associated with the donation process, including transportation, one certified death certificate, cremation, and return of cremated remains to the family.
Our donation coordinators are available 24 hours a day to help guide your patients and families through the donation process, as well as answer any questions.
At Solace Cremation, we believe there is a better way: one that is simple, honest, transparent, and puts the needs of families first. Unlike most traditional funeral homes, Solace does not have a “starter price.” Our final price is always $895; we do not charge for delivery of remains, device removal, or weight over 300lbs. There are no trips to a funeral home; our simple system lets families make arrangements online with our mobile-friendly process or by phone, speaking with one of our compassionate Care Team members. Solace is available 24/7 to answer questions and help families. What started as being more convenient is now the safer way to make arrangements; families can complete paperwork and secure electronic signatures from their homes’ comfort.
