Smallburg has a new business: Hosparus.
Really? Hospice R Us?
Where people go to blow bubbles before they die.
Their website says if you get admitted to Hospice R Us early enough, you can have a great time! Shucks, sounds like a good deal…
If they begin hospice care early, many patients with life-limiting illnesses can still enjoy their favorite pastimes. Hosparus helps people face end-of-life issues with as much care and thought as any other milestone in life – so they can enjoy quality of life as much as possible.
I’m ready to move in today. There are five quality of life indicators that would qualify me to move into a nursing home:
- ability to toilet myself independently
- ability to feed myself
- ability to get out of the recliner
- ability to balance
- I forget the last one
Hells bells, I can fake all of those and do quite regularly just to get out of chores.
Hospice R Us? Really? Really?
That’s not too cute a name?
Hosparus has just one hitch: you have to be dying of an incurable illness.
One of my favorite poets, Lord Byron was the subject of a painting of life before Hosparus came on the scene.
I think I want to die like Lord Byron. Wonder if Hospice R Us would give me a wreath of cigar leaves to wear? And a sword, I want a sword near my death-bed.
The harp? Not so much. I’ve spent my whole live harping.
