Dr. Gary McCarragher's
I'm Dr. Gary McCarragher.

I have the honor and privilege of being a hospice physician.  I created HOSPICE - CARE FOR LIFE as a one-stop, online information and support center for those dealing with advance care planning questions and decisions.

Click on one of the categories below and connect to a world of information for patients, families, doctors, nurses, caretakers, hospice volunteers, social workers, and spiritual advisers. You also can find support dealing with bereavement.

If you have any questions or would like to share a story or information, feel free to contact me.

 Cheers,  Dr. Mac
