Patients in hospice care tend to sleep a lot – and those periods of blissful rest can lead to a new way of dreaming. Dr. Christopher Kerr, CEO and chief medical officer at Hospice Buffalo, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about observing end-of-life patients and how their dreams and visions provide moments of beauty and affirmation. His new book is called “Death is But a Dream: Finding Hope and Meaning at Life’s End.”
