Category change to 'Hospice'
Will someone please explain to me why my husband's doctors are so anxious to change my husband's status to "hospice." He does not have a terminal disease and is not in pain. He is just deteriorating slowly but steadily, and I am caring for him at home. They keep bringing up the subject of hospice but I don't understand what benefits it will provide for us. I can feed him and give him his medication and take his blood pressure. Why are they so anxious to label him Hospice ? ?
