Beyond the patients, home care and hospice scenarios can affect caregivers. Dealing with terminally ill patients or loved ones can prove traumatic and tumultuous for even the best-prepared caregivers. Though proper medical treatment is paramount for providing care, often the goal of palliative therapy focuses more on comfort than a cure. For people suffering from terminal illness, Reiki may be able to provide that comfort. Furthermore, Reiki can be an important self-practice for caregivers in palliative or hospice fields where grief can sidle up to negative feelings of burnout and fatigue.
Whether as an effective self-care tool or a new addition to medical treatments, Reiki benefits both patients and caregivers in hospice and home health care scenarios. Reiki is on an upward trend of gaining ever greater acceptance as an effective holistic therapy in complement to mainstream medical care. Coupled with its ease of training and plethora of uses at home and in the wider medical and lay communities, Reiki becomes especially viable as a comforting, stress-relieving solution for anyone in hospice or health home care situations.
Healing doesn't always mean a cure. Some view healing as becoming whole or returning to perfect health. Some believe the perfect state of health is when we transition and we become whole. When we have the opportunity to become in a peaceful state before we pass, it makes the journey much more gentle. Reiki helps to give that peace to people at the end of life care. It helps them ease some of the anxiety that they might be experiencing as they are making changes for their journey.

Reiki offers amazing gifts to people as they are nearing the end of their physical life.
