My father-in-law begins Hospice next week. How long will Hospice come out? My understanding is it is 6 months or less. Is that correct? Does anyone know what happends if it goes past 6 months? Past a year?
I feel it is too soon for Hospice but his nurse practioner who comes to his house signed the form. I have helped care give for 3 other people and while he certainly sick, I feel he needs additional caregiving but that Hospice is extreme.
So what happends 6 months or a year from now if he does not pass? Does Hospice just keep coming and the perscription is renewed? Thanks.
