According to Google the Medical Definition of Hospice care. Hospice care: Care designed to give supportive care to people in the final phase of a terminal illness and focus on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure. The goal is to enable patients to be comfortable and free of pain, so that they live each day as complete as they possibly can.
Hospice Home Care is a In-home care where family or loved ones can spend their last days at home with those who are closes to them.
An In-home setting is far better than a public facility where many things tend to go lacking. Things such as precious time, a close watch over our dying loved one.
But the down side, would be not keeping a close eye on the amount of medications given. How many individuals are administering medication. The lack of sleep, and the worst moment, death.
To choose or not to choose weather or not to use Hospice, to use a in-home staff, or weather to send that dear family member to a site that can carry the weight of all the patient care.
The choice is yours, but one must be absolutely well with their decision. No matter what an outsider might feel or say, you are the one ultimately that has to deal with the heartbreaking task of the personal and strenuous workload. A job that can bombard your personal being, while completely consuming every fiber of your being.
If you should decide to use Hospice, and send a beloved family member there. Be firm in your decision, stand your ground, and unwavering. Do what is best for all involved, but by all means, be present. This is a sure sign that the nursing staff will know the family is supportive.
Providing less chance for negligence or abuse. While being supportive to the one who is ailing, after all, no one wants to be alone at a time like that. Remember to do your research before selecting a facility.
Encourage Yourself In The Lord: No one can say what is best for you. You must decide weather Hospice is best , or weather or not you will choose In-Home or a licensed facility.
Remember one must pray and never faint! Seek God in all you do and He will direct your path.
