I'm sorry to hear what you're going through, it's very difficult.

I don't know how to say this gently, but it needs to be said. Hospice care is generally focused only on comfort/pain management, and not recovery. Even to the point they will grant pain meds far beyond what would normally be considered a healthy/safe dose. It is considered end of life care. It is not a rehab facility where the goal is to recover and go home.

Again, I'm sorry, and I only point this out because when a friend's mother went into hospice, my friend was shocked when she came to the realization of what exactly that meant.
