Re: hospice

My Dad died at a Hospice House and several family friends have had Hospice services at home. My Mom is now a Hospice Volunteer. Personally I have no experience with any color coded nursing teams -
I've also done a search both on the main Hospice webpage and on the intertet and came up empty.

Can you share where it is than you ran across this? In print? or in person?
Very interesting question...

Re: hospice

Well, now I'm even more curious!
You'll have to tell them that you've heard such good things about hospice, but hadn't heard of the color team deal before - They probably would enjoy the interest!
How is your mom doing?
