Hospice care has been my professional life as a nurse for the past 18 years and offers comfort, dignity, and quality of life for individuals at the end of their life. Hospice care supported my Mom on ...her final journey 19 years ago so she was able to die at home in my Father's arms where she wanted to be. NHPCO supports hospice providers so they can provide the best care possible to patients anf familes at the end of life. See More

As my Mother was nearing the end we had Hospice care. They were so wonderful & gentle with her. Knowing they would be there for her was such a blessing to me - I loved her dearly but 5 yrs of solely c...aring for someone who is incapacitated is hard, so their presence also was break of sorts for me. When she passed, one phone call & they were so great to take care of everything (she was at home). They were there within minutes and absolutely knew what to do & did it. So sweet to my family. Also had Hospice care for my Father in law in another state at a hospital, thanks to them I knew how things worked when it came time to call them in for Mom. Takes VERY special people to dedicate themselves to this work. Thank you all for what you do in your calling. :) See More

Hospice is my Baby. It is what I became a nurse to do. Thank you to all the families that make it possible for us to love your loved one in their final Journey.

I was diagnosed with lung cancer in Dec of 2013 and was put on palliative care immediately and did great but in Feb of 2015 it metastasized to my other lung. At that time very hard conversations took as to what I wanted for end of life, what I found once my plan of care was in place, pain was relieved and my emotional and mental well being was in tack along with my family's all due to my palliative care team, the core of that team is my oncologist/Palliative care Doctor. I found strength,peace, comfort and the will to continue my battle that will be 3 years ago this December, I am still a palliative care patient who now volunteers at my cancer center doing hand massage for chemo patients, speaking with my Doctor at conferences about palliative care. What I have learned and believe is Palliative care is not about death, but everything about LIVING, chemo took care of cancer Palliative care saved me and gave me a life worth fighting for and living for everyday.

Thank you all who provide this amazing care�

Hospice/Palliative Care is legal Euthanasia whether you want it or not!

My comments are related to a personal experience of enrolling my 98 year old mother in a Hospice program in Southeastern Ohio. Adena Hospice based at Adena Hospital in Chillecothe, Ohio. My mother l...ives in her home with a full-time care giver and was recently diagnosed with CHF and has a history of severe aortic stenosis. Her mobility has been decreasing and her pain worsening over the past year or so.
We are not interested in heroics and aggressive intervention, but rather comfort and peace. It is so difficult to achieve that within traditional healthcare settings. Physician concern of over-prescribing pain meds and the logistics of getting scripts every 30 days, etc.
Two recent cardiac events have resulted in damage to her heart. After the most recent event, we were offered the opportunity to consider Hospice for Mother.
Every person we have met as part of the Hospice Team has been special and the interactions they have had with her and her caregivers have been supportive, kind, respectful, and gentle. The services available to her and the family are extensive and access is made easy.
Getting special equipment in the home was completed on the day we signed up. I had been trying to get a hospital bed through her physician for 6 weeks. The nurses visits began within 2 days. SW and chaplain visited the day after her return home from the hospital.
I am an RN, but hospice is a best-kept secret as it has evolved to what it is today. I keep feeling I need to pinch myself to be sure I am not just dreaming up the safety net that Hospice is providing to all of us. I could not be more thankful.

We are all heading here, the world is a better place to live when you are sure of what will happen to you when you can not support the self. many thanks to our brothers in western art of the world tha...t have earned this.
In many African countries, Ageing is still looked at as a curse because of the absence of elderly social amenities. Big hope, we will be there tomorrow.

My Mother went there 9 days before her death in Watertown N.Y.. The suites r their for the patient & family to stay. The staff there were absolutely wonderful. Took care of every need for not just Mo...m also Me. They came in and ask Mom if she wanted to eat. They would make her snything she wanted. There was a mini frig so I could put food in than go to kitchen & heat it up. They washed Moms dirty clothes. When they seen that I wasn't doing good they would talk to me. I was alone with no siblings & was very emotional. They r the best there. I got through the whole process till Mom took her last breath. God Bless everyone that works at Hospice. Especially the one Jefferson county in Watertown N Y called Ellis farm. See More

Are you people getting paid by the hospices around the country? I went on your google page and where it said contact us, I wrote you on May 29, 2016 and as of today Aug. 23, 2016, I have yet to hear ...from you. I tried to ask if it were a normal procedure for a chaplain of a hospice to take the widow to the bedroom while her husband lay in the living room where the husbands best friend sat with him. I would have thought if the chaplain was going to take a widow anywhere that maybe outdoors for fresh air would have been a better choice or any other room but the bedroom. Why is it okay for a hospice to handout all this information about what kind of bereavement counseling you will receive after your loved one dies and then not carry out not one single thing? When a hospice leaves you 3 weeks after the death and then sends you a survey where you respond with the worst review possible, so thick in pages it is hard to close the envelope, is it okay for that hospice to come back into your life, making life changing even altering changes in your life? I looked at all the paperwork that we were given and no where does it say that especially when they are not getting paid and walked out of your life. do they have the right to do things that resulted in more PTSD episodes and giving out false information to law authorities. Why is it acceptable behavior that when you contact the General Manager and the President of the company that they are afraid to answer your questions and dismiss you and it seems to be okay with you? Why is it that different companies within this profession try to keep you from giving a review about their services to protect others from making a wrong choice in the care they want for their loved ones and the family left behind? If there is no wrong doing on their part than why not let people give a honest review? I truly wish someone from your office would have taken the time to get in touch with someone who contacted you and has been waiting for an answer. I believe the truth needs to be told about exactly what is the proper behavior and what they promise to do will be done and in no way when they have absolutely no authority do things that they are not. #TRUTH #JUSTICE needs to be upheld somewhere.

I have hospice care for my mother here in Louisiana, and I am very satisfied. It's all about my mom. I just want her to be comfortable and at peace at home, so I know she can be with me, and wont suffer.

Julia was the inspiration for the ComfyLiftBed. Because of her mother's love, we were moved to find a way to help Julia with her lung disease issue. Julia's reflux was getting the best of her along the strong medicine they had her on.
Thank God, Julia progressively improved in 2004 with the ComfyLiftBed. She was able to stop the medicine for acid reflux, gained some weight & the special needs bed also helped with her breathing at night. Many more kids have benefited since Julia, and many more will. The ComfyLiftBed is the only medical bed/mattress that we know of that can keep a person elevated while they sleep and or many cases, while being feed on a g-tube/n-tube.

The family of a current Texas Children's cancer patient has set up a wonderful organization called "Kaylee's Kindness." Kaylee (the beautiful and generous patient) collects items and puts gift baskets... together to give to patients & families of those in the hospital. She loves to bring joy to those in times of need... They are a very inspirational family!

My dear friend put together an online Stella & Dot trunk show (with "Kaylee's Kindness" as the host). The show goes through the end of May, & 100% of proceeds go directly to Kaylee's organization.

I believe this is a great thing, now people with any illness can get help from professional people. They don't have to be in the hospital and it will make a difference in their lives.

One of the most informative sites, specifically facts and figures as of 2012 & 2013, I have read about these type of services, and how the affordable care act will reduce the payments over the next 10 years.
