Info on hospice home care

Started by

My father, turning 86 is in tha last stages of emphazima(sp) He also has had pneumonia for several months, in and out of the hospital. He can't hardly stand up because his legs are so weak. He came out of the hospital to a nursing home for rehab on his legs. Someone needs to be there all the time because of, what we, the family, feel
is not good care. I wanted to find out how I can get hospice care in his home. My step mom is able to help some, but I need to know how to facilitate this home care.
Appreciate any info that would help,
