BELOIT — Despite Mary Eneix's recent stroke, she and her husband, Lloyd, are intent on seeing her 91st birthday next month together.

Thanks to hospice, they are looking forward to spending what time they have together, and they take relief in knowing that their immediate needs will be met.

If you ask Lloyd, he'll tell you that he's been able to maintain a certain quality of life.

The Eneixes currently are receiving hospice care together as residents of the Riverside Terrace building, the Beloit Regional Hospice partnered facility.

Lloyd feels that thus far, his end-of-life journey has been made as comfortable as possible through the efforts of hospice care.

“Even though we are in assisted living, there are things they can't cover and hospice covers it,” Lloyd said. “Everything we need, they are there to supply us with and keep us comfortable. Right now that's the main purpose, to spend your last days and keep the quality of life up till the end.”

There is a gap, however, in the cost the services Beloit Regional Hospice provides, and reimbursement that comes in from public and private insurance.
