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

Hi Todd, then yes, sorry I mis understoad, there is palliative care/hospice care for at home! Differant places use differant terms, but yes we have it, but one thing about nurses, they always think they can do it better, and for me, and my mother, I will do most of the care because it comes naturally to me, and also because of a trust factor with my mother.
