Today, I want to chat about a philosophy and model of health care that offers tremendous hope to patients and families confronted by the daunting challenges of chronic and/or terminal illness—palliative care—an unfamiliar term for most folks. But you’ve probably heard of hospice care, right? Well, hospice is a specific type of palliative care. Now I realize the word “hospice” may have you reaching for the mute button. The idea of hospice – end of life care—is frightening to most people. But it’s vitally important for you and your family to understand what hospice has to offer. Then, you can make an informed decision instead of merely reacting out of fear. So find a cozy spot. Pour a cup of coffee. And RELAX. It’s time to chat!

    How to Tell if a Restaurant Sells 'Good Food'
    At a time when every other restaurant is touting "farm-to-table" and perhaps just as many restaurateurs are running from scandal, it can be hard to answer the question: Where to dine out this evening? Boulder-based Sara Brito hopes to help answer this seemingly small dilemma (at least the farm-to-table part) with her year-old program that tracks restaurant dollars spent in the "good food" economy.
