WHAT DO OUR FAMILIES SAY ABOUT HOSPICE?

family-largeHospice made the loss of our father an easier transition due to the educational material and the support of everyone who helped.”
Daughter of Hospice patient

“My Dad passed away in January. Without the support of VNA Hospice I don’t know how we would have managed. Our Hospice team was terrific. They were like family to all of us. Words cannot express our thanks for all their help. You “guys” are the best!”
Son of Hospice patient

“Although we only had Hospice care for four days, their support and help got me through the most difficult time of my life. Our VNA Hospice Nurse was there for me when I needed her the most. I will always be grateful for her care and understanding.”
Wife of Hospice patient

“I know I have said thank you before, but I just can’t say it enough. VNA is a wonderful organization. We could not have taken care of my mother without all of your help. You are very special people.”
Daughter of Hospice patient

“The Hospice team was very helpful during the last stage of our father’s life by explaining what we were seeing. They were also helpful in contacting individuals after his death (i.e., church, funeral home). Thank you for caring for our father and family!”
