I have known abou Lower Cape Fear Hospice for a long time as I am a retired Nurse. I had a brief encounter with Hospice in 2007 when my brother was very ill and passed away in the hospital, then in 2008 my father became very ill and wanted to stay at home to die. Hospice was very helful in making that happen and have been very supporative to my entire family.
