Inpatient Hospice

Postby NickM » Mon Apr 28, 2014 7:05 pm

Hi All,

Has anyone had experience with in-patient hospice [as opposed to home based hospice]? If so, what has been your experience and how did you determine it was time to go to with inpatient hospice?

Many of our local support group members have done in-patient hospice. I have heard only good things. In-patient hospice seems to be for those who are actively dying (and within perhaps 10 days of death - just a guess) or it's used as respite care for the family (if there is a hospice bed available).
