Hospice is a great resource when the time comes. They provide equipment, supplies and assistance at no charge. If you think you need hospice, I’d advice that you speak with your doctor about the manner. Hospice is usually called in with the decline of that patient from cancer, Alzheimer’s and other diseases. Your doctor or local hospice can give you more information.
Just remember to be thankful for all that the workers do and remember this is a free service.
Some of the assistance provided includes a nurse, social worker, aid to assist with bathing and other needs, religious adviser and prescriptions.
