Hospice is a service that we all may need someday – if not for ourselves, for our loved ones, or for our neighbors. Although none of us are exempt from death, we do have choices about the services we use at the end of life. Hospice is the best option in the last months of life, not only to those of us who are dying, but also to those we leave behind. Hospice services are a benefit to the patient and their family.
