For those of you who don’t know, Hospice offer a free service to the terminally ill. They do home visits, dispense medication to deal with symptoms and pain, provide invaluable advice as people become incapable of doing anything for themselves. They are a very worthy organization to support as they help anyone who is in a similar situation. Please be sure to support your local Hospice.
