Hospices are businesses. There are good hospices and bad ones. Some just give morphine to the point a person stops breathing, some give just what's needed, also have home care like help bathing, dressing, etc. You have to talk to your doctor about
what you want. Learn the language. Being made comfortable can mean more morphine. You have to insist on not just more pain meds, but being COMFORTABLE, as my mom put it.
My mother was on hospice for about
3 years. Everyone did expect her to die in a few weeks, but she was a tough old bird. Her care was monitored closely by my brother and I, and mom was aware enough to say what she needed. She had very little in the way of pain meds, but needed loads of heart meds. The care followed her from her home to assisted living and she had daily care later when she needed it.
