How do I find care for my visiting father who is on hospice?

Asked by

My father wants to travel here to visit us before he passes away. He is currently receiving hospice care in Missouri. I know it seems crazy to think he can fly here in his condition but it's been something he's been looking forward to for quite some time. Does anyone know if hospice will help care for him while he's here visiting?

Check with the hospice group that is caring for him now and get their opinion about him traveling like that. They may have different ideas about how safe it is for him to travel. They may also be able to direct you into getting local care.

To be on the safe side, I would also check with a hospice group in your area for info on caring for visiting patients.
