SUNRISE, Fla., Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Interim HealthCare®, the nation's first and finest home healthcare franchise company, today launched the fifth of its eight-part documentary series for 2011.

The video debuting today on Interim HealthCare's YouTube channel http://youtu.be/vn_cjxpM8a8 highlights Mary Burr's mother, an Interim HealthCare Hospice patient who was undergoing hospice care in her home.

"Although Hospice care has been available for over 30 years, many patients don't learn about this compassionate model of care until they are faced with making important decisions concerning a terminally ill family member. Our attentive and companionate hospice team is available to step in at any time and help and answer difficult questions in a more relaxed and comfortable environment."
Interim HealthCare Hospice provides medical and psychosocial care for terminally ill patients in their last several months of life.
