What would you bring to a friend who is in Hospice? PIOG

Posted by   + Show Post

Hi,

Two of my friends' mothers are in hospice.  I'm going to visit one of them this weekend.  What are some gift suggestions, or should I bring flowers?  Would you go empty-handed?  The one I'm going to see has had so many visitors, they have to schedule 2 at a time, 10 minutes each. 

Just wondering -- have never done this before.  She & used to be very close, years ago, before I moved away (I moved back recently) & I'm pretty sure it will be easy to talk to/pray with her.  She's "ready" spiritually....

Thanks!

Edited: thank you again for all the suggestions.  I will keep them in mind for the future.  I messaged her daughter on fb & she said "large Hershey bars -- both she & her gentleman companion love them" -- I find this funny, since Fae & I both used to work at M&M, where Snickers/Milky Way/Twix were the order of the day :)
