is there any blogs on hospice? I have questions if they really make you comfortable in your finale days. Hopefully I won't have to get there, just wondering


  • You would need to do an internet search on hospice. That is a topic that is not found on Spine Health....palliative care would be another suggestion to look for.
  • systems in the uk .we have specialised nurses called macmillan they were amazing for my gran ,not just in controlling her pain but making sure she has a microwave {when microwaves were very expensive] and making sure she had a 24 hour professional phone number and a specialised call system .so of she felt ill all she had to do was press a pendant {around her neck and she could talk to a professional .they were excellent ,if your illness has taken you to locate a hospice they all tend to be very good but just use the net to find a good one I am sorry that things have come to this good luck my friend ,you will find support here too

    beneficial actions for both the patient and the family. I have known a few families that had to use this and there is nothing but praise for hospice. The care and love they can offer is great for the patient and takes a good amount of strain/stress from the family.

    Most hospital case workers can give you all the details you would ever need
