My father has been under the care of Hosparus for two weeks. The first day we brought him home we were told to call and someone would come out and assess him and the house and make sure we had what we needed. We called as soon as we arrived home, was asked if we needed anything, to which I responded "I don't think so" then was told if you do, give us a call. When we did call about something all the nurse on the phone would do was suggest morphine, I think these people get a kickback everytime someone administers morphine. We were also told we were going to get a bi-pap machine. This was on a Thursday. After several calls back and forth the following Tuesday we got one. Today the nurse tells my mother (over the phone) that he's been approved for the machine through Dec. 1 st due to the holidays and that this machine is the only thing keeping him alive. Now by only think keeping him alive, you mean he only uses it when he sleeps and the rest of the day he is up laughing and telling stories, completely coherent, and somewhat "back to normal" I'll take it. We will be discontinuing Hosparus care as soon as we can get the prescriptions filled from his other doctors for the bi-pap and oxygen

Those people at Hosparus, Inc. could not have been more accommodating and more helpful. They started working with me four or five weeks before my husband's doctor had put in an order for hospice care. Every one of them was accommodating and kind. They were informative and couldn't have been more caring. They have also offered grief counseling for the family for a year. I absolutely would recommend them to others. They are such a useful organization. It was also wonderful that that insurance paid for it. My experience with them between the transition from his care to end of life was seamless.

Our experience was absolutely awful. The nurse assigned to dad was friendly and smiling until dad had to be catheterized, then she stopped showing up. she called me and told me that dads assisted living facility wanted him to be moved to a nursing home. Spoke to the assisted living facility - story was not true. I called hosparus and told them about it. They agreed to give us a new nurse. dad went down hard three days later (with still no nurse). On Monday I called for emergency help (they were supposed to respond in an hour) - three and a half hours later a nurse pranced in the room. Dad lived three more days and every day they sent a different nurse with a different story about medications, etc. I was left completely on my own to make decisions on when to give meds, giving suppositories for fevers. I could've gone to a drug dealer and got the supplies I needed and would have had just as much info on what to do. It was really, really bad....
