Am just now starting to look into a future hospice scenario for my 92 year old mother. Way back when it seemed there were just a few publicized ones out there. Here in Arizona I was familiar with the names and had a pretty good idea which way to go. Now it seems like every home health agency has one and they have just popped out all over like weeds - many of the names I don't even recognize. Anyway, I am familiar with the hospice concept generally and what it does and does not offer. So, knowing this...is it worthwhile to research them? Does it really matter in the end which one to choose when the services are so similar?
