I’ve been observing for-profit-corporate hospice for a while, and have long believed it’s the single greatest threat to a patient and family’s opportunity to achieve a peaceful death Ava Kofman’s recent piece emphasized yet again the need to develop ways to help people negotiate the minefield that for-profit corps have made of hospice, and to help patients, families, caregivers, clinicians and the community understand the difference between good hospice and predatory crappy hospice There are so many rabbit holes in the space, as just one example: Curo Health Services didn’t exist until 2010 ..read more
