Saving The Family – Advanced Care Planning
By Robert Lampkin with Vitas Hospice Care
Robert joined the staff of VITAS Innovative Hospice Care of Houston in 2013, but has been passionate about hospice for a long time.
As a community liaison working with faith communities, Robert educates parishioners and their leaders about the benefits of hospice, the myths about hospice and the services VITAS provides. “People who dread hospice don’t understand hospice,” he says. “Hospice is as much about the caregiver as it is about the patient. It’s as much about emotional pain as about physical pain near the end of life.”
Robert was formerly a licensed counselor and is a published author. Prior to joining VITAS, he worked with an organization that provided medical equipment and supplies to women and children in 80 developing countries.
