    Terminal care. My CNA daughter works in an assisted care facility. From time to time she also doubles as an hospice worker.

    I do believe it is for those who are terminally ill.
    I have been told it provides caring with dignity.
    Seeing it at a few VA facilities has caused me some doubts as to the accuracy of that.

    Hospice was a god send when my husband was dying. They gave me support and much needed relief from the constant care.

    I believe in it. It takes a special person to be able to give care and comfort to a dying person.

    If I was at that stage of life, I would take it. All this talk of caring for our elderly in nursing homes is bunk. Even the best of them have short staffing and patients who can’t get out of bed, turn over etc., without two people helping them. They all smell like stale urine. My Mom’s choice when it came time,
    was to go out gracefully by withholding treatment as opposed to extending everyone’s misery (including her own). Mine will be too.

    Care with dignity, and a better end than rotting away in a con home.

    A way to spend your final days in dignity.
    A very good cause.

    Hospice is for when you have no chance of recovering from whatever condition you have (that is, you are terminal), and are then able to be given enough medication to keep you comfortable and no longer subjected to pointless poking, prodding and testing. It is an opportunity to truly live your life with dignity all the way to the end in a setting that makes sense for you (home, hospital or nursing home).

    Good luck with your research!
