In Their Own Words...

I couldn’t have done this without hospice assistance. Our nurse was extremely helpful and very caring. The chaplain went out of her way to help my mother and my family. She did an outstanding job, and is a true servant of God. Hospice, as a group, made my job easier. They educated me on what would be, which relieved me of my unknown fears. I highly recommend that all those in need contact hospice, and I campaign for people to donate and contribute to this wonderful organization.
