Anyone can go to Zen Hospice, which is a RCF (Residential Care
Facility) for the Chronically Ill.  I believe the model is like any
other residence:  patients pay room and board and hospice companies
visit patients there.  The other similar place is Coming Home
Hospice in the Castro, which I believe was an early response to the
Aids crisis and is now owned by CPMC.

Our patients are all in their homes.  For some, their home is the
same building they have lived in for decades.  For others, their
home is a skilled nursing facility they have just been moved to. 
And yes, I see lots people in of assisted living and independent
living sections of senior facilities too.

Thanks so much to <pspan>, <wickett>, <renshin> and all who
participated in this discussion. While discussions in Inkwell
formally last two weeks, the topic will remain open, and it's fine
to continue posting here.
