Article on Hospice Care


Recommended Posts

Given the recent experiences of some of our members with hospice, I found this article in today's Raleigh News and Observer interesting. It discusses the fact that there are now for-profit hospices in addition to the not-for-profit that many of us are familiar with. While it makes no claim whether one is better than the others, it does point out that in a for-profit organization the goal is to maximize profit for shareholders, which may affect some care decisions.
