Hospice

VITAS Hospice was wonderful….a friend said recently how she had never heard of any hospice not measuring up….actually I know two people who were critical of the care their family received;. I don’t know—sometimes there are ‘helicopter’ families-everyone wants the VERY best for their loved ones…and sometimes they expect no suffering, no disappointments, no disheartening and get cross and unreasonable. I don’t know and maybe there is insufficient care. I know they can’t make it go away. I am grateful to my nurse friend in the infusion center who told me about her grandmother’s hospice care. The earlier hospice can be involved the sooner they KNOW and CARE for the person. The nursing, equipment, medicine, and social work…..it was all so helpful.
