I have dreaded this option but I know it's in my fathers best intrest to get hospice in the house ASAP once he is DC'ed from the hospital. I have been reading to many horror stories from some very reptiable media outlets on the money machine hospice has become over the past few years and could use some advice on what questions I need to ask.
Should I go with a larger corprate company or a smaller non for profit? What are the most important questions to ask and things to know when picking a hospice agency?
While I do have an older sister who helps out when she can and my mother who is in early 70's is finding this all very hard to accept so that leaves me doing most of the leg work in finding a hospice while also dealing with all his doctors and medical needs. Being the youngest I have quit my job and dipped into my savings to take on this roll to the best of my ablity not to be just a care giver but my fathers patent advocate as well. I feel it's an honnor to be able to be here for my father in this time of life and hope and pray G-d gives me many more years of caring for my father.
