Hospice Cares For Terminally Ill During Final Stage Of Life

LAKEWOOD, CO - AUGUST 20: Chaplain Larry Grimm sits with terminally ill hospice resident Chiu Ning Yuan, 89, in the chapel of the Hospice of Saint John on August 20, 2009 in Lakewood, Colorado. The non-profit hospice, the second oldest in the United States, accepts the terminally ill regardless of their ability to pay, although most residents are covered by Medicare. End of life care has become a contentious issue in the current national health care debate. Hospice administrators point out that their care costs about one third the price of hospital care, and that they concentrate on helping residents to enjoy the final stage of their lives.
