9 out of 10 adults would prefer to be cared for at home rather than in a hospital or nursing home if diagnosed with a terminal illness. 96% of hospice care is provided in the patient’s home or place they call home. #hospicemonth
Accepting a referral to hospice simply means you have chosen to focus on the quality of life for however much time you have left. The goal of Hospice care is to reduce physical pain, create emotional well-being and enhance spiritual peace. #nationalhospicemonth
BACK WHEN WE WERE GROWNUPS by Anne Tyler. I read Anne Tyler many years ago and enjoyed many of her titles, but this one didn't do much for me. Easy to read, the characters seemed locked in time and boundaries. I kept waiting for something to happen. 2 Stars.
