Blues legend BB King, who has been battling health problems, is in home hospice care.

Hospice care is a type of care and philosophy of care that focuses on making a disease less severe without actually curing it and attending to the patient’s emotional and spiritual needs.
The 89-year-old “The Thrill Is Gone” hitmaker’s website shared the news with his fans, said The Hollywood Reporter.

“I am in home hospice care at my residence in Las Vegas. Thanks to all for your well wishes and prayers,” read the message on his website, yesterday.

The singer was admitted to a Las Vegas hospital on Thursday afternoon because his daughter, Patty King, said he was not eating and was dehydrated.

Tests showed King may have had a minor heart attack, she said. He was released and went home. King spent several days in the hospital in early April for dehydration caused by his Type II diabetes.

King has toured for decades, but has no upcoming concert dates listed on his website.
