I have a right to my opinion. I have a right to voice what i experienced and what i saw happened to my mother and my family. We trusted hospice. DON'T! Don't fall for this crap. I would say morphine is the way to go if it works for you. The other drugs are horrible.My mother was euthanized at this facility using psychotic drugs that come to find out had horrid side affects. Patients families should be told ALLL the side affects of the psychotic drugs they use before making a decision to allow euthanasia. . It is a rough last two weeks for patients. My mother was miserable. YES unfortunately government controls what drugs hospice administer. My dog was euthanized more kindly at my vet than my mother in hospice. I thought human life was more valuable than an animal. Apparently according to our government it is not. Another example of our government at work saving money on the elderly drugs. My dog had a more gentle dying process.
Heritage Hospice is such a wonderful place. The staff there are the most wonderful and loving people we have ever met and they took great care of my loved one. I do not agree with the above review as it has nothing to do with Heritage Hospice, and is just a open attack on all hospice organizations. I highly recommend Heritage Hospice as they treated my entire family with nothing but love and compassion.
parent in hospice I disagree with psychotic drugs used in the dying process.
