Hospice Offers Quality End-of-Life Care for Alzheimer’s

Dear Carol: My dad has been in a local nursing home for several years. He has many health issues but advanced Alzheimer’s is his biggest problem. He cries out sometimes and seems to be in pain, but the doctor says they are doing all that they can. The doctor says that Alzheimer’s is a terminal disease and they can only do so much. I hear great things about hospice care for the end of life, but can hospice help keep people with Alzheimer’s comfortable? When can we ask hospice for care? Is it better to leave Dad in the nursing home for hospice care or bring him to our house? Does Medicare pay for hospice? Thanks for any help you can give us. - Jeff
