    I am going through this exact experience, down to the sickness and trembling. Where did I ever get the idea that hospice care meant a smooth morphine trip to the heavens, and that my Dad’s conscious mind would have checked out? So much went wrong with this hospital. They keep telling me he’s resting peacefully, and when I get there, he too is wailing. When it’s my time, I’d rather be pushed off a cliff.

    I brought hospice in after Dad fell almost 3 weeks ago. I am the only caregiver and I have a sister and stepbrother I have not heard from or seen in 20 + years. I thought hospice was help. What a joke! They want the caregiver to cater toward their solutions and they aren’t solving anything but making things worse instead. They are suppose to make comfort at the end of life..HA! Me and Dad have been living in hell ever since I signed up. Their antipsychotic drugs..what a joke. Drugs to make Dad sleep. I just spent 3 days and 3 nights with about 3 hours of sleep to the point of where I was experiencing heart palpitations and seeing things with profuse sweating because their joke drugs made Dad act crazy day and night. I was accused of making that up by the administrator. Everytime a nurse came out Dad was asleep.. but after they left..world war 3 started again with Dad’s craziness.

    Then they want to throw their authority around and tell me what to do in my house. No go! I will tell them in a minute what they can do with their witches brew drugs. No meds were given since 6 last night..Dad has never been so calm. Polypharmacy is a good way to murder people..This is sad and I am completely pissed off with hospice.
