Over the next few weeks I will be publishing an updated set of posts on how to choose a hospice. This is a series I posted first in March of 2005. The format will remain the same and much of the content will remain the same. My thoughts on some issues have changed over the past couple of years (I may have even been wrong about a few things.) and the industry has changed quite a bit. I think this series, out of all the rambling I have done, is probably the most important, so I wanted to try to keep the series updated to the current trends in hospice.
There are also many people reading this blog who didn’t read it in 2005, and I hope you will all feel free to give your thoughts and advice in the comments section. Argue with me when you think I’m wrong; Lord knows many of you probably know more and have more experience in hospice than I do! Most people who need to choose a hospice don’t even know what to ask. It is a HUGE decision that is often made quickly and with few facts. For those who do read these posts before making their decision, I want it to be as helpful as it can be. Post number one should be up soon.
