The question is, why is he in hospice when he's obviously in such great shape? In his shoes, most people would choose to die at home.
He's probably in hospice because he's in such bad shape he needs more attention than he can get at home. Some hospices are so nice. My brother died in a hospice. It looked like a bedroom in a home, and it had an extra bed and couch so we could sleep there. My brother had lung cancer and he just needed extra attention he couldn't get being at home.
