dad went into hospice today. in the care centers language he is declining rapidly. he's not eating or drinking much and is refusing to take his medicine. we all met with hospice yesterday and they will start their care. this is just another layer of care that is geared to the alzheimer's disease. this is a horrible disease, in dad's case his physical body is still pretty good but his mind is not there. going to funeral home in the next couple of weeks to make his final arrangements. that is NOT going to be easy, but we would rather do it now then when we are grieving
