I am wondering, if one does not want a feeding tube, can he/she request to be transferred to hospice for palliative care when eating becomes very difficult ? This seems like a pieceful way out, as opposed to choking to death.

Hi ptich. I think the laws are different from state to state but the local Hospice would tell you if you called them.
