New Beacon Hospice was the providor for my mother for many years as she declined very gradually from lung cancer. Grief related questions as to how I was coping came twice by telephone during over 5+ years of service and once via letter after her death. There was, in my opinion, an incredible lack of professionalism. My mother, who was quite a humorist and interesting woman, often said she felt more like she was there for them than they were for her. They even told her she was good for their morale. Her long stay in hospice was unique so there may have been a different expereince in more traditional durations of care situations. In the end, at her side, there was a nurse who showed up and had only seen my mom a few times but was very professional, very spiritual very consoling. She was the most professional and true hospice nurse I had ever met and I regretted she had not been the prototype of care workers I met. After many years of service, I was overall quite unimpressed and felt hurt from the whole experience as did my other family members.

New Beacon was called in to care for my love one. They promished to take care of them & to be with me when he died. I intertview them and read their contract. But when it came to taking care of him they were no where to be found. I called and called only to have them tell me "we have others to care for too" They left no orders for drugs and he was in very bad pain for days. When the nurse did come she was on her phone half the time of the vist. She was very mean to him. I would never want any one to use New Beacon.
