are they different in Virginia than other states? does all medical support and hospitalization end. Sister in law has brain cancer, the home health nurses have suggested hospice to "help" her husband, does this mean the nurse thinks they're going to do everyday things? But once hospice is in can he take her to hospital or seek medical help? They told my uncle no more medical help once they were there. Please advise where I can find info or does he need to call the local hospice in his area and meet with them? Do they all operate differently?
