Is your Mom still competent to discuss the possibility of Hospice? It sounds like she has decided to accept the end of life. Hospice is usually ordered by the treating doc if it appears there is 6 months or less of life expectancy. This should be discussed with your mother and her doc to see if it's appropriate for her at this time.
