I finally worked up the nerve to contact Hosparus today. It's been nearly a month that I've been wanting to call them but I just couldn't do it.

Their slogan is "Because the end of life is part of living". My stomach is churning thinking of it.

My dad, sister, myself, and even Mom are meeting with a Hosparus agent or nurse (not sure which she/he will be) this Sunday, May 6th, to begin in-home care for Mom.

Mom is continually going into congestive heart failure and it is wearing on her to keep having to go to the hospital. The hospital doesn't even admit her anylonger which, to me, means that there isn't really anything more they can do for her.
I've heard that Hosparus can come into her home to make her comfortable during her heart failure.

I'm experiencing all sorts of emotions about this meeting, including nausea. I am so nervous.

Dementia patients need a safe environment. When keeping my Mom safe it wasn't always easy to get her to "obey the safety rules." I found that prevention was easier than expecting her to do or not to do something.
