My father spent his last couple of weeks on this earth doing Hospice at home. I was his main caregiver for the first couple of weeks. It was a welcome relief because both my mother and I were lacking in sleep. They were all so compassionate and would answer any questions that we had. Even though the experience was difficult, it was bearable because of the fantastic staff. If you can do hospice at home, I highly recommend it. The units can be depressing. We wanted Dad at home and he was so happy to be going home.
