Hospice Organization of Southern California is pleased to learn of the decision of Archbishop Roger Mahony and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to explore the possibility of a hospice for AIDS patients. Hospice care is available to anyone faced with life-threatening disease and is administered primarily in the home. Hospice offers symptom control, social, psychological and spiritual support to both the patient and their loved ones. Victims of AIDS are particularly in need because of their forced isolation and discrimination.

I, too, can attest to the fact that home hospice nurses are true angels of mercy ("Comfort and Caring," Oct. 14). Before my wife succumbed to cancer several months ago, she was given expert and loving care by a local home hospice organization. The nurse and the nurse's aide, who did everything to make the patient comfortable and relatively free of pain during her final days, were also towers of strength to the family members, preparing them for the inevitable and assuring them help will always be available when needed, night or day, seven days a week.

As immediate past president and executive director of the Hospice Organization of Southern California, I want to offer support to the commentary of Herman Kattlove ("AIDS Brings Urgency to Need for Hospices," Op-Ed Page, Aug. 16). Home care agencies with hospice programs have been in the forefront of offering care to those faced with life-threatening disease and were the first to respond to persons with AIDS. Hospice programs of care offer compassionate, loving care along with a support system for the family and loved ones as well as palliative symptom and pain control.

The article by Tia Gindick, "Last Months of Sandy Simon: A Film of Tears, Triumph" (July 9) was a fine example of one woman's courage and her legacy of hospice care to those left behind. We are grateful to The Times for offering the story of Sandy Simon in order for your readers to have a greater understanding of the support system that hospice offers. Hospice has become synonymous with loving care and dignity for those patients and families facing life-threatening disease.

In response to the article written by Archbishop Roger M. Mahony (Opinion, March 30), "An Archbishop's New Hospice: Hands-On, by Gospels Example," the hospice community is grateful for the archbishop's response to the need for care of the AIDS patient. We also recognize the remarkable work done by Mother Teresa of Calcutta offering desperately ill people comfort and solace in their last days. Hospice care has been provided in the United States for 11 years and has been bringing a quality of life and comfort to all who are faced with a life-threatening disease.

Alan Citron's article "Archdiocese Reveals Plans to Provide AIDS Hospices" (Metro, Feb. 18) reports the opening of "hospice-style shelters" by the Catholic Archdiocese. The need for care is acute and the report that the archdiocese is addressing this matter is very heartening. What are hospice-style shelters? Hospices provide care for those persons who are in the last days of life.
