76. I'm so sorry...
While I can't imagine what you are going through, I talk to people in your same situation every day as I work for a hospice. My great uncle died on hospice and my mother was a hospice nurse, both being with who I now work for. The most important thing seems to be for people to know that you really care about them and their family. I know that those that I work closely with go above and beyond the call of duty, and those are the best people to work with hospice patients and families. What we do means so much to some families that they get involved after the death of their loved one by volunteering with us and doing what they can to improve the quality of life for others who are ill. There will be some bad apples out there, but I sincerely hope that whoever takes care of your dad does so with the care and compassion that hospice staff should.
