Anniversary of loss of parent may trigger sudden death in middle-aged child
In a recent study of 102 people who died of sudden death, 13% of the deaths occurred on the date of one or both of the patient's parents' deaths. Seven of the patients died on the anniversary of their father's death, five on the anniversary of their mother's death, and one on the anniversary of the deaths of both parents.

About Hospice

Hospice care is sensitive, dignified and cost-effective health care that is a benefit of the Medicare program and is also covered by Medicaid in many states. Many private insurance companies, HMOs and managed care plans offer hospice care as a benefit.

Hospice responds to the unique needs of the terminally ill by providing physical and emotional care to dying persons and their families. The hospice philosophy seeks to allow the terminally ill person to be at home, close to family and friends, while still under professional medical supervision.

Hospice services include:

  • Medical and Nursing Care
  • Personal Care
  • Homemaker Services
  • Social Work Services
  • Grief and other Counseling Services
  • Volunteer Assistance
  • Spiritual care
  • Case Management
  • Family Training in Patient Care
