    Another area that I believe needs to be examined and looked at is the role of Hospice personnel who take advantage of the people who are dieing by getting into their finances and assets—-while living and even after the person dies.

    All of us are vulnerable to trusting people that we should not trust with our personal finances, if we have any in these bad economic times.

    Medicare fraud is being looked at now——that should include hospice providers who take advantage of the dieing person and their families—–even extending to owning the properties of the dieing.
