Delf,

I was referring to "at home." While I think in this country they started out with such services at hospitals, nursing homes, etc., now the patient is in the home and they come directly to your home for palliative care, at least in these parts they do. Of course, I'm sure there are circumstances where the patient must be in the hospital. The individuals about whom I referred all passed away in their own homes.

Your mother is certainly fortunate to have someone such as you as both her daughter and one of her nurses.

Todd
