Yesterday, my sister Susan Mullins and I went to the local cable TV station for an interview about Hospice Care of the West. When faced with our Mom’s downward decline, hospice was a lifesaver. There is so much misunderstanding about hospice. Few know that you can literally interview a number of hospice organization to find one that resonates with you. Second, hospice is all about comfort and peace of mind for the family. It is not a signal that death is immediate. For us, Hospice Care of the West had a philosophy that mirrored ours: namely, life is to be celebrated all the way through. This hospice created a DVD for us of an interview with Mom about her life. They presented it to us as a gift. What a treasure.
