If I may interject a recommended documentary...called " an honest death". It follows a Palliative Doctor(masahiro tanaka) during his months prior to his final breath. It brought to the surface the reality of how when one who was once the healer.. be comes the afflicted. How very much I could identify. As my mother (an RN)for years 'tendered' to the afflicted...and many a tear did she shed when all was done. Then when it was her time to chose such care. .it was I that had to hold her hand...and be there. Anyways the documentary may be shot in a country with different life values...but ultimately (like most of us do...) his wife held on to hope far longer then his body could sustain. The staff at the care facility were so respectful of the families wishes....

My mother had in home hospice for over a month. It was not the same people every time. Some were wonderful, caring and helpful. Some did a good job but they were cold and distant. Some were rude. The worst was beyond rude, They were just a terrible person resentful, hated their job, hated us, we were afraid to leave her alone with mom because we thought she might hurt mom. We finally had to tell her to get out of the house or we were calling the police.


I think it is like pretty much everything. There are good people and bad people.
