Not all hospice organizations are created equal. It's true that in many communities there is only one choice for palliative care, the kind of care people who are dying get that keeps them comfortable but doesn't aim to cure. Some hospitals have a palliative care unit. Many - probably most - hospices are non-profit organizations that are heaven sent to suffering people and their grateful families. However, there are some hospice organizations where better training for the caregivers is needed, and there are a few hospice organizations that are not well run or well informed.
