Debunking misconceptions about hospice
- Hospice is not just for the last few days or weeks of life. You should ask your loved one’s doctor whether a curative treatment will work and what impact it will have.
- Hospice isn’t a “place” — it’s a type of care. Hospice care is typically delivered in the patient’s own home, in Assisted Living or in Skilled Nursing.
- The patient need not be homebound to receive hospice care — the goal is to remain as independent as possible.
- Hospice isn’t a financial burden — services are covered by Medicare Part A, Medicaid, and many private insurance providers.
- Hospice won’t shorten life — it seeks to improve the patient’s quality of life and allow dying to take place naturally and without pain.

“My name is Laura Campbell and my mother, Astry Campbell, was a resident at Fellowship Village for almost 5 years.”
“My name is Laura Campbell and my mother, Astry Campbell, was a resident at Fellowship Village for almost 5 years. My mother died January 24, 2018, surrounded by people who cared for her. Mom’s health started to significantly decline a year ago and she agreed to hospice care last October. The last 5 months, mom was bed-bound and her end of life would have been miserable had it not been for her exceptional healthcare team. I am writing this letter to sing the praises of the staff at Fellowship Village, her hospice team, and in particular, her round-the-clock aides, Blanca, Anna and Miriam. My mother had a special bond with each of her aides, and they provided above and beyond care to ensure she was as comfortable as possible. Mom could be difficult to please, but she never complained about these gals, always stating her care was exceptional. Her aides comforted her physically, emotionally and spiritually. Mom’s hospice nurse, Alaina Nemes, and social worker Michelle Cicala were second to none. They patiently listened to mom, supported her, revised her care plan as her needs changed, and kept her children well informed throughout the process. My sister Brenda and I are both RNs and my brother Scott is a physician. We understand how difficult it is to work in healthcare, but these professionals set the bar high. We developed a kindred sisterhood relationship with Alaina, she made us laugh during a difficult time. It provides great comfort knowing our mother was treated with dignity and respect. She died peacefully with two of her beloved aides, Blanca and Miriam, in addition to Alaina and Michelle, at her side. On a final note, my sister and I appreciate the unwavering time and kindness showed by Phylis Tranotti throughout mom’s stay at Fellowship. She cheerfully addressed every concern we had timely and professionally. Thank you all for putting love and kindness into healthcare.”
