I have waited some time to place some kind of review against this shamble of a company. I did this to properly grieve and not have this review become emotional or obsessed with what could have happened if we had hired someone who was competent.
If you are looking over this looking on who to call for your family member, please choose literally any other stay in Nurse or Hospice care for them.
My father was given very little care in the last days of his life. I cannot express the amount of pain or anguish this company has caused my family or the disrespect that they gave to my father in his last days.
They wanted us to administer the pills into my fathers rectum during the time that they should be there, but decidedly were not.
They embarrassed my father by administering the pills in front of his daughter in law while he was still conscious.
They neglected to actually be their during the hours that they said that they would be there, leaving my dying father alone with his children at home with very little or no clue on how to handle the situation.
When they were their, it seemed to make the situation worse entirely, either neglecting our father and complaining to us about the drive, or complaining to us about her personal life.
They began to look through every single cabinet and drawer despite not asking to what she was looking for and beginning to search our entire house without consent and had to be stopped on three separate occasions.
The issue and question in the companies competence comes into play by not only the alone time my father had without a nurse, but the amount of nurses we needed to go through to find one that wouldn't look through our things or talk about her personal shitty life was far too high.
If someone I knew today had a dying loved one and they asked my opinion of this shame of a company I would give them the same answer I have given all of you. Pay a little more to get someone who will be there with them, give them care, be tentative to their needs, and have some respect for the house they are in.
I waited 6 months to write something about this horrible company. I will paste this same response in every conceivable outcropping I can in hopes that someone somewhere does not have their loved one disrespected in such a manner that mitigates or downplays the feelings of those who have lost a loved one. Please take your loved ones somewhere else. Never let these people get close to the people that you care about. Thank you for reading this and hopefully this will allow for someone to not have more pain than they are already bearing in their loved ones last days.
The care provided by this hospice is amazing. Their staff is caring, compassionate and always available to answer questions. Regardless of when we needed help, our nurse was just a call away. They listened to our family and always made sure that we were comfortable and included in the plan of care for our family member. We can not recommend this hospice enough.
