My aunt is 83 with CHF. She has a pacemaker/defibulator and has trouble with fluid build up. She gets out of breath very quickly. She is mobile with a cane, however, not able to bath without help. She needs blood work on a regular basis to help monitor the medications she is taking.

I agree with Pam above. Your Aunt isn't even close to be needing Hospice care. Plus, it would be up to her doctor to decide when that time is near.

Eligibility is a prognosis with less than 6 months life expectancy. It doesn't sound like she is near that yet, especially if she is able to get around with the walker.
