I have been told I need to go into a hospice because I'm deteriorating gradually. I need some advice.?
My cancer is deteriorating and the hospital have said I have to go into a hospice. What I need to know is is it scary and will I like it? I'm getting sicker and sicker every day and the thought of hospices make me scared. Help me.

(sigh) I'm so very sorry for this, but if your doctor has recommended a hospice, it is basically his way of telling you he does not believe you'll recover. It might be time for you to get your things in order, or seek a second opinion. Or both.

The hospice will give you the care you need until you pass away.

Hi Laura I've only just caught up with your other questions.
Firstly, if you decide to go into a hospice I hope you will still have access to the internet.
I don't know if you are up to reading books, but you could try 'Quantum Healing' by Deepak Chopra -it describes visualisation techniques for activating your immune system and some of what he describes works on cancer. It is available from www.amazon.co.uk Even if you can't get the internet you will still be able to take a book, surely?

I'll pray for your good health. I don't know much about a hospice care but I read your story and was touched so I felt inclined to send some words of encouragement. Don't give up on life, always remain strong because there are people out there who fight this disease everyday. I wish you a rapid and safe healing. God be with you.

Cancer patients have been brought back from the brink by using glyconutrients. They kill cancer cells without harming any other healthy cells. They are totally natural.
For testimonies you can visit www.Glyco.com/Glycosaurus

Good god you are a brave women. You have made my heart weep for you. You will be in my prayers tonight, we can all hope for a miracle. Good Luck- I truly mean that.
Gd bless Laura.

I only wish my father could have had the chance of going into a hospice. Usually, hospices are full of specially trained staff and the Macmillan nurse are very helpful in cases where a stay in a hospice isn't possible, because they depend heavily on charitable contributions. If the hospital you are visiting has the facilities of the Macmillan nurses,(I don't know where you are) they should be your first course of enquiry. In any event, you have my deepest condolences and I hope you recover fully.
Have a look at the link below and rest easy in the knowledge that they will make your stay as comfortable as possible.

When my mother was deteriorating from her cancer we had hospice come in to help my brother and i take care of my mother. They were wonderful! The most caring people i have ever met. To choose to work with patients that are not going to recover takes special type of people. The ladies that came to our house treated my mom with the most caring and compassion i have ever seen. She was comfortable and at peace. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. God Bless.

Hospice is one of the caring organization there is, you can have them at home as well as in there facilities. My husband had them and they were great, so don't be afraid, and God bless.

Hospices treat the whole person, not just the cancer. Is it only the thought of going to the hospice that scares you? If you would like to know about God's love and what He can do for you, go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/seeking_reality

You will be in my prayers Laura, and your willing to contact me if you wish.

My heart goes out in compassion to you - God Bless

My experience of hospices are that they are absolutely brilliant places to go to. You will recieve the best quality care possible, and there will be opportunities for activities like complementary therapies etc.

They are warm, loving places, and to be honest, never heard of a bad one yet.

Sorry to hear you are not dong so well,
You are in my thoughts.


suzy

My dad went into a hospice and passed away there last year. I am suprised that you have not been given any contact from the hospice you are about to go into...my dads consultant at the hospice he went into came to see him at home several occasions after he was told it was terminal and came to visit him the day before he was admitted. I can only speak from my own personal experience...my dad was admitted, it kinda looked much like a hospital with carpets but on a smaller more cosy level. He was only in for a few short hours before taking everyone by suprise and drawing his last breath...in that time he was cared for, made welcome and comfortable and even given a gin and tonic!!! Hospices have such a bad rep as they are places where people go to pass away but some go in for respite to... I am glad my dad was in the hospice when he passed because they were far more understanding, attentive and caring than hospital had the time to ever be. It makes me feel so sad to hear you are scared and I do hope you are not alone during this time...I hope your last days are filled with peace and inner strength and that you are comforted by these words. They will take care of you before and after you pass with love and understanding that years of experience has given them and they will also support any family or friends that are left behind. Bless you, with love xx

im so so sorry laura my thoughts are with you. i dont know what to say other than atleast you are in the best place at this time

What do you want to do? My mother in law was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer 3 years ago, this year they discovered a brain tumour and that was successfully removed in January but now she is too weak for the chemo and despite being an active lady who would do anything for anyone without complaint she is now reliant on others to help her with the basics - but even now she is still thinking of others rather than what she needs herself ie we wanted to get a chair to make it easier for her to get up and sleep but she refused because of the cost. She is worried about calling for her husband to help her get up to go to the loo because he has a bad back and she wouldn't be able to care for him if anything happened. We are all trying to do our best for her but it is very difficult to know what she really wants - does she want us to fight for more treatment or not? so my advice would be don't remain silent - now is the time to voice what you want and what your concerns are and stuff the consequences.

I am so sorry to hear you have cancer. I am also a cancer patient but in remission. I had breast cancer and masectomy. At the moment doing okay. It would depend how much you can do for yourself. Have you got family looking after you? Are you alone. Taking this all into consideration should be able to help you make a decision. People in the hospice are remarkable people and very caring. At least that way you would be taken care of properly and never be on your own. I think you would feel more secure. I wish I could help you. Look after yourself.


jonnyraven
I was sorry to read about your situation. You have gotten many good answers.
The treatment you will receive at a hospice will improve your comfort and ease your dying.


Kathy
The folks who work for hospice are God's angels here on earth. They will take good care of you. You may not have many more years on this earth, but the time you have will be quality time. Do everything you ever wanted to do, and get your affairs in order. My best friend told me that it was the only time in her life she did not have to worry. I am so sorry, but the angels will be there and help you through the rough times.

you dont have to go into a hospice. you can be at home and have a macmillon nurse. talk to your doctor.

Oh my, I am so sorry for you, my cousin also had cancer and needed a hospice, they take care of you until the end. I'm sorry to put it so blundtly, but it's the only way I can explain it. My cousin died at age 38 with her hospice at her side. She died peacefully in her sleep. I will pray for you.

I know ppl who have been n hospices... in all cases it has been a positive experience & has helped everyone involved. It's the best place to be. Take care & go well.

I hope to put your fears to rest. I think you will feel that hospice is the best thing that's ever happened to you. You will be cared for. All your needs will be attended to with respect, courtesy, sensitivity and compassion. Your pain will be alleviated. When you can no longer feed yourself, you will be fed. When you need help with toileting, it will be given. When you are no longer able to do for yourself, it will be done for you. You will be loved and treated as the valuable person that you are. You'll be cared for with cheer, good humor and hope. There will always be someone to sit with you, talk to you, listen to you and hold back the shadows when your fears encroach. You will not die alone. You will die with dignity, pain-free, clean and as comfortable as possible and you will die with people who love you, holding your hand. As you've been referred to hospice, I am aware of your prognosis...that is, how much time you've been given. I know. You couldn't spend that time in a better place. Don't be afraid. You have friends there waiting to meet you. God bless you always.

They are wonderful people and will do all they can to make you comfortable.
There really are Angels on this planet!

Please don't listen to all this rubbish about death being imminent. It is true that hospices do not offer treatment aimed at curing cancer or even at slowing its' progress, but it's not about putting you to bed and waiting until you die.

Hospices, and the palliative care teams who work there, specialise in treating the symptoms of terminal illness. This means that during your stay they will do everything they can to control your pain, nausea and other problems. They are usually very successful at this.
It may be that you will feel well enough to go home with an appropriate level of support.
It is true that if you wish some hospices will arrange for you to spend your final days of life as an inpatient, but many people choose to die at home. You can discuss this with your doctors and nurses.
As to your fear of the hospice itself, they are usually much more relaxing places than acute hospitals, and you should expect it to be a calming experience which will if anything only help to soothe your anxieties.
My thoughts go out to you at this difficult time.

What hospice will do is make it so that you can live comfortably... with out pain and as your body weakes they will help find some one to take care of you... they will help you choose to stay there or live at home I know it's scary but they are there to help you.
