Message:  Ginny,

My mom followed down this road. She never went to a doctor, but I had to make the decision to send her to the hospital.

There, she was diagnosed and she was put on hospice care.

I want to say, that the hospice people were a GOD SEND. They cared, and they lifted our burden tremendously.

These were decisions I wish I didn't have to make, but I did.

I don't usually respond to Porch reqests, but this one hit close to home. (Rather than diagnose her with "Alzheimers", they put "senile demensia" on the certificate).

This was four years ago, this month.

Joey
