The article discusses an outreach program Caminando Juntos initiated by Capital Hospice of Falls Church in Virginia, for the Latino community. It mentions that the program is trying to emphasize that hospice care is not intended to take the place of the family, but to serve along with the family in caring for the patient. It states that due to the entrenched belief that patients are better taken care by family, hospitals are often viewed with distaste and suspicion.
