What does hospice mean to me?
Since I've been a hospice patient, I have experienced genuine peace of mind. I feel confident that I will be taken care of, in accordance with my wishes. There will be no more trips to the hospital, trips that, with few exceptions, accomplished very little. There will be no more needles or invasive procedures. My comfort is the center of hospice philosophy. This is totally in line with the model of the mental health system we've been promoting all these years, with very limited success.
