Bob Messer: Thank you to the Hospice of the Foothills

Now, as a client of Hospice of the Foothills, I have a whole new perspective and respect for the care and service they offer.

Their goal is to assist the client/caregivers from having the burden of leaving their home for doctor visits, etc. A weekly home visit by a case manager (or more often if needed) to check on clients vitals, etc. is part of their service.

A 24-hour, on-call phone number for any questions or concerns the client/caregivers may have regarding their health and or safety is provided. No, they do not prolong or hasten a client’s earthly departure, as is so often thought of by the public, as their goal. They leave that up to God. But they certainly do help with pain control and the understanding of each prescribed medicine’s function.

By the way the program is free for us old timers including the medicines prescribed by the hospice doctors.
