No one chooses old age and death voluntariliy. Hospice is there for them.

Unless they get it from a blood transfusion, people that get AIDS chose their demise by their behavior and their choices,

I don't think they need a special hospice program anymore, regular hospice is fine. Fortunately we no longer have droves of people dying of AIDS.
