Terminally ill patients in Israel are given the option to die in their own homes rather than in a hospital. Those who choose this are eligible for a state-funded home hospice team- doctor, nurse and social worker.

Providing physical and mental support, the team assists the patients in parting from what is here and arriving there. 

Home hospice staff members are experienced with death, having witnessed it dozens of times. They choose confronting death as a way of life, and they have an established protocol for how one should die. Still, every home they enter is a new story and a new challenge.
