i can understand both sides
but coming from such a tightknit family, there is no well in hell that i'd let my MOTHER die in a hospice...uh uh...i won't even allow my mother to go into a nursing home
As a FAMILY UNIT we have nursed grandparents, aunts and uncles at either their homes or our homes until their death
i've seen 'hospice life' its not pretty, i went through it with my best friend, they just don't receive the quality of care that would come from a CARING family member
i just couldn't do it...but again, my family is very, very close...
its a lot of work, but my heart wouldn't allow me to do otherwise
