Any suggestions in the Hurst area?
And is it possible to stay with someone in hospice care in a residential treatment center?
He is in hospital now and we can’t be with him at all

My father receives hospice services at a residental care facility in south Fort Worth. Greg Lynch helped me find it. He usually finds places for seniors but he may have some advice. I'll message you his phone number.

I did home hospice for my late husband. He had a frequent visit (I think daily or every other day) from a traveling nurse; otherwise our doctor made sure we had enough meds to keep him comfortable. For our family, it was the best solution. At the time, my son and his wife stayed with us, so someone was usually awake at his side.

It may be difficult, with the medical crisis, to get a medical professional to conduct home visits. But possibly there are more senior healthcare personnel who take such assignments.

So, so very sorry to hear this. My heart goes out to you.

No advice but I just wanted to say I'm sorry.

Our son will be sedated enough not to have pain they promise—but they say hearing is the last sense to leave so we are hoping he will know we are there.

I hope no one else ever has to go through something so unnatural—

So very sorry. Did he get COVID or was it something else?

Whatever it is, I hope he can somehow pull through.
