Rose Anderson Chooses Home Hospice Care

(posted 2/4/2006)- Pat's mother, Rose, has recently experienced severe kidney failure. Since she also has a chronic congestive heart condition she chose not to undergo extensive dialysis sessions in an attempt to squeeze a few more months out living in the hospital.

Rose has opted for paliative treatment (for pain only) using Medicare Hospice services at home. We give thanks for the safety-net of services our society currently provides to patients who would die with dignity.

Rose's daughters Pat and Rosie, and her grand-daughter Charlotte are currently spending time round the clock with her at her apartment. Rose has had an opportunity to say goodbye to her immediate family and friends and is at peace.

At some point in the future I plan to update our online picture gallery with a selection of photos capturing moments taken from Rose's Family Photos collection.
