It's rare to find resources that translate the critical clinical information your patients and their loved ones need into materials that intuitively soothe even as they inform.

Client EOL resources don't have to sound distant and medical to communicate the insight your clients need.  It's time our resources matched the empathy of our mission.

We can't expect clients in crisis to raise their level of attention and focus to understand information on our terms.  Rather we need to meet them where they are and provide materials that calm, connect and guide as much as they inform and educate.

Wings of Change Publications offers  beautifully-designed, intuitively-developed EOL materials rooted in science and communicated with unparalleled compassion. 

We are here to make your job easier so you can serve your clients well.

Words that Heal, Resources that Guide, Products that Help You Serve Your Clients Well  

At Wings of Change Publications, we craft healing words rooted in careful intention, grounded creativity, and evidence-based practice because aching hearts don't have to journey alone.  And neither do the dedicated professionals who serve them every day.  We're here for you so you can be there for them.

When brains are in crisis mode it is next to impossible to process and comprehend logical, detailed volumes of information.

As EOL professionals, we work with clients in crisis every day.

Our materials at Wings of Change Publications are empathetically, and strategically designed to meet your clients right where they are at.   

We communicate using metaphor to help give them the tools they need to  walk through what may be some of the hardest circumstances of their lives.

We are committed to serving you  by creating the resources you need to communicate to your clients about the things that matter most.

Why We Use Nature Metaphors to Connect & Communicate

When families and caregivers face some of the hardest crisis moments caring for their loved ones as the end nears, Nature Gave Us Butterflies uses beautifully written and illustrated images of the transformation cycle of the butterfly to help them understand the different stages and phases of their own journey.

It gives them crucial information carefully communicated in ways to help them retain the key insights needed to care for their loved one, and themselves.

We firmly believe that EOL materials that present important clinical information don't need to be "clinical" in their method of communicating those points in order to be effective.  

In order to truly be effective, they need to merge clinical information with compassionate insight and clear communication.  See more of how we help you care for your patients.

How Our Materials Help EOL Professionals

End-of-life care is like a symphony with each person playing their part.  And every phase is different.  Our products are thoughtfully-designed to speak to specific needs that emerge during each step along the way.   Our products are also crafted to help your organization have tools that lighten the load for your team at the same time as  calming and supporting your clients through the entirety of their journey with you.

Pre-Admission Nurse/Social Worker

Use to comfort the family as they learn about the benefits of hospice and how hospice works. Provide them with the booklet to comfort and educate. Listen to their concerns and refer to the appropriate section to reinforce the information you are teaching.


Admission Packet

Include
Nature Gave Us Butterflies in the initial information the family receives upon admission to hospice or in the "considering hospice phase." As we know, families integrate information in pieces and at their own pace. Provide them with end-of-life materials that represent your hospice agency in a gentle, compassionate manner.

Understanding the Difference Between Hospice & Palliative Care

RN Case Manager

Quality teaching is the goal of every hospice nurse, and yet we still struggle to get all of the information into the visit, along with other important nursing duties. Teaching from our booklets and showing the family where to read about the specific symptoms creates a visual where the family can turn for further information. Teaching from one end-of-life care booklet provides continuity of care among staff and decreases the caregiver anxiety, resulting in an overall better experience of hospice care.

Social Work Services

Social workers have an ability to create a level of trust with patients and families, placing them in a unique position to educate and support the patient and family. Giving them the permission needed to voice their feelings and concerns creates a sense of security and comfort with the hospice care they are receiving. Our materials are used by social workers to reinforce the normalcy of grief reactions, grief as an individual process, and many other psychosocial topics.

Chaplain Services

Chaplains are an important source of comfort and knowledge for the patient and family. As spiritual care providers, many of our publications can augment the existential questions that chaplains address daily while patient and families come to terms with their end-of-life issues.

On-Call Services

Studies show that the number of after-hour calls decrease when you provide quality teaching to patients and families. In addition to inservicing your staff on the use of our teaching materials, be sure your on-call staf refers to and teaches from the relevant pages in the booklets as well. Once the family knows what to expect, anxiety decreases and calls lessen. Being consistent and having the entire staff teach from one booklet provides continuity of care and decreases mixed messages given by staff.

The Active Dying Process

Bereavement Counseling

Bereavement counselors know that when a client is grieving, there is a limit to the amount of information a person can truly comprehend in session. Providing grief materials to read in between sessions can be comforting to the client. Our materials use the soft, inviting approach of nature metaphors to relate to their experiences and help them understand and make sense of their emotional pain. Use materials for individuals, groups, memorial service readings and newsletter topics.


Bereavement Groups

Groups by nature are comprised of those attendees who speak often, and those who would rather listen. Each person mourns and processes grief individually. However, providing grief materials for group members to take home in between group sessions may keep them invested and engages in attending he group on a regular basis.

One of the best ways to demonstrate your care and level of professionalism to physicians, long term care facilities, hospitals, and other referral sources is to share your patient education materials with them. Not only will they be able to see your agency's level of professionalism, but they will also have valuable, reliable, and sensitive education materials to learn from when they are informing and educating their patients.

Community Inservices and Education

As hospice providers, we have a commitment to educate our communities about the valuable services hospice can provide. We are end-of-life experts. Our mission continues: provide evidence-based, factual information addressing the fears and myths that arise when the word "terminal" is presented. Our booklets deliver this information in a gentle, factual, and beautiful manner, using nature metaphors to help them understand this phase of life. Use the booklets to distribute in community inservices to deepen the understanding of end-of-life care.

Volunteer/Employee Training

Many hospices train their entire staff on using
Nature Gave Us Butterflies, creating a synchronized approach to the use of the booklet in the patient's home. When all of your staff are referring to the same booklet for education, the family will sense and benefit from the continuity of the message. Volunteer Coordinators also use the materials to educate volunteers in new volunteer orientation or ongoing volunteer inservicing.
