MetadataShow full item record
In the past ten years, a new concept in health care, called hospice, has been sweeping our country. Having been long since established in Europe, the hospice movement was introduced to America in the mid-seventies. Since this time, numerous programs practicing the basic hospice philosophy have been formed, and the demand is increasing for the type of care offered by these programs. The DeKalb County Hospice is just one example of the hospice philosophy being put to excellent work by assisting the terminally ill in the DeKalb County area.
