By Terrible last memory of loved one

I am a past client of this provider

Unfortunately the hospital did not send the correct pharmacy script when the patient was transported. We were told at Sacred Journey a doctor would be in shortly to update her medication but it took 22 hours for him to see her. The patient had COPD and after the oxygen was removed, it took an hour to replace the oxygen. Since she had great trouble breathing, she was in great distress during that time. We felt that at times, the care needed took much longer to come than expected. We were disappointed in the care given to our loved one.

The nurses and aides from Sacred Journey were wonderful. They were so very kind and helpful during my husband's illness and his death. They told me exactly what to expect and they were right. Our RN was just a phone call away. I would recommend this facility to anyone.

My father was placed at Sacred Journey after an extensive hospital stay and they've been nothing but caring and compassionate. This has been a very difficult time for my family and they've helped carry the burden..from the social workers to the nurses, respiratory therapists, CNA's , Chaplain and receptionist. The staff here truly have the heart for their patients and families. God bless, Heather

The staff took excellent care of my mother during her stay there. They offered wonderful family support during her stay and after as well. It meant so much to have the personal care and encouragement given by the staff. I highly recommend this caring provider..

I visited this facility along with one other when my love one needed this type of care. I discussed with him before about the two places and I was happy when he said he was leaning towards going to Sacred Journey. I liked the idea of them preparing the meals on site and that they had cameras in the rooms so they could see the patient at all times. The whole staff were very caring, sufficient, friendly, and helpful answering all our questions. They gave very good care for my love one and I would recommend them to anyone. They also have an excellent grief support group that helps you through the aftermath.

Sacred Journey is exactly what the name says: a Sacred Journey that your loved one, family and the staff all take together. It's a journey that even though there are other clients there, the staff make you feel like it is just you and your loved one. This journey for us began with fear, uncertainty and lots of questions, but ended with the most peaceful amazing experience we could ask for. Every single person during our entire stay was patient, gentle and kind. The staff was there to help dry my tears during the emotional times, and most importantly listen to my fathers old war stories, and laugh at his jokes and defend his Dallas Cowboys. If you are ever faced with the decision of hospice for yourself or a loved one, please consider Sacred Journey. Life is a journey filled with all kinds of ups and downs, but we were blessed that my fathers final journey on earth was with the wonderful people at Sacred Journey.

I cannot find the words to describe how wonderful all the employees at scared journey staff were to my mother Evelyn, she passed away at dreamcatchers, in Jackson, we were able to get her home to dreamcatchers,with the help of sacred journey, the admit nurse was wonderful, the aide was so gentle with her, the social worker and Chaplin were angels to her and to her family.the only negative thing i need to say is her comfort kit did not arrive for 6 hours, she was agitated and in pain, and me, being her daughter was heartbroken, that i had nothing to help relieve her symptoms, the medication delivery certainally needs a overhaul, i hope they take a look at the system and fix it, i would not want to see another family endure that, the whole experience was awesome other that the medication delay,mayby there needs to be comfort kits in different locations, or a skeleton kit with the admitting nurse to allow the client to receive comfort , until the entire kit can arrive? I think if this issue can be resolved, you have a stellar operation and top notch employees.

All of the people my husband and I was I in contact with were Angels on earth. They are the kindest, most caring people in the world!! I thank God for the staff that helped us. I would highly recommend Sacred Journey Hospice to anyone who needs help during the hardest time of your life. My husband has since went home to be with Jesus but Sacred Journey is still in my life helping me learn to cope. They don't leave you alone to deal with things on your own. They are awesome people. They treated us like family.

I visited a friend at Sacred Journey years ago and was impressed with the way that he was treated. I was my mother's caretaker for nearly five years after she was diagnosed with renal disease. She suffered a fall early in September of 2016 and this accelerated her dementia. She was in the hospital and a rehab facility for weeks and became bedridden. Once her physicians determined nothing else could be offered, they recommended hospice. The very word itself was heartbreaking. This was the most difficult decision that I had ever made in my life. I am grateful that she was nearby enabling me to visit as often as I liked to. The staff was incredible and saw to her every need. They thoroughly explained each step of the process and answered all my questions and concerns. Once she transitioned, Chaplain Don and the staff were there to render help and support. Thanks to them all for caring for my mother during her last days with us..

In January of 2016 my grandmother was admitted on to Scared Journey Hospice care for terminal cancer. My awesome step mother was able to care for her mother at home with the help of dear family and friends and the great , wonderful, and faithful care Scared Journey Hospice provided and equipment we so needed. On 02-11-2016 my grandmother told her daughter in the wee hours of the morning in her home that today was the day and she was ready to meet her maker and how wonderful her one and only child had been and the blessing she was to her. That day she became increasingly weaker by the moment and just six hours before her death Scared Journey brought our sweet lady to the in-patient unit to make sure her earthly passing and internal birth went well and boy did it! We as family were all there my sister , father, and my grandmothers best friend for over 45 years it was a bittersweet precious moment. Her passing was comfortable and peaceful everything her family and her daughter could ask for truly. On a more personal note I have a close professional relationship with Scared journey because I am the Executive Director for a local Assisted Living and we work hand in hand caring for my residents as a team. It would have been very easy to expect me or ask me to help in her care but they did not they allowed me to be a family member to my loved one but also caring for me and my family's emotions they were wonderful and myself and I know my whole family is so thankful. We will never forget the care ,the love, and understanding. THE HESTER AND CHEATWOOD FAMILY!

My mom went into Sacred Journey Hospice back in July 2014. Our experience from the time we entered until the time we departed in March 2016 has been an amazing time. Everyone and I do mean everyone that came into contact with our family has been very compassionate, caring, professional, loving, and amazing. If I had to rate Sacred Journey I would give them 110% because they went beyond the call of duties. They made sure that any and everything that we needed was provided. My mom was in-home hospice but on occasions she would go into the facility. The facility was always very clean!! I LOVE Sacred Journey Hospice and i would definitely refer my friends and family to them! I can go on and on about how wonderful this place is!!!!!!!

My 94 year old, father who was a WWII Veteran, received care from Sacred Journey Hospice prior to his death in 2014. The care and Chaplin Services provided by Sacred Journey Hospice, assisted our family in keeping my father at home. The aftercare provided guidance through the grief process for a year following my father's death. Our family benefited from verbal as well as written correspondences, A Memorial Service and a day long grief Camp for our 7 year old grandson, provided an opportunity for our family to bring closure. Thank you Sacred Journey Hospice and may God continue to Bless each of you who bring comfort through a difficult experience.

Times of grief and sadness pull our hearts toward God as we look for comfort and relief. I would like to thank the staff at Sacred Journey Hospice, from the nurses to the social worker for the care that was provided to my husband during his time of illness .They were very professional and knowledgeable in caring for him .As he was going through his transitional stages I knew what to expect because they taught me the different stages of transition. Because of their teaching I was able to cope with my husband death. I would highly recommend Sacred Journey Hospice, to provide care for your love ones. Deloris J. Hicks

When you hear the word Hospice - you panic - because you don't know what it really is. My husband was referred to Sacred Journey Hospice by VA because of his terminal condition. They were angels sent to us by God to assist us in our every day lives to cope with his illness. They have given us any help we needed and always available to assist at any time. The nurses and nurses aides that come to us are all very caring and compassionate and concerned about his health and what can they do to make it better. Sacred Journey has been able to provide more than we could have ever imagined to make this transition easier. I would highly recommend Sacred Journey.

I took it upon myself to read the book, Being Mortal by Gawande, before my mother was at the end of her life. She told me what was important to her through an advance directive as she could not speak about this without being very emotional. I am thankful for that document, as it allows me to understand that she wants comfort at the end of her life, not trying to cure her from inevitable death. Sacred Journey is our partner on this journey. When the nurse came to her assisted living home to meet with all of us, mother was concerned that she was not actively dying- the nurse explained that if you meet the criteria because of your terminal disease, it's better to get to know your providers before you are on that final few weeks, so there is trust and understanding. We agreed, and mother was admitted. She needed extra care from a fall the next day, and her injury was handled swiftly and professionally, with a minimum of pain and fear. Sacred Journey staff has continued to walk with us every step of the way on this journey to the other side, and are compassionate. Going on service before the last month is such an advantage as the family understands more of the dying process and are is left with unresolved anger. Sacred Journey has made this a time of peace instead of struggle. Thank you all!

I am a past client of this provider. I cared for my father at home. He was admitted to Sacred Journey's care under the VA. because of his medical condition. As his primary care taker it was a challenge but with the help of Sacred Journey staff and nurses it made it easy for me to cope and maintain. It was like they were part of the family very professional. I would recommend their service to anyone that was in search of Hospice care.

My late husband was a patient of Sacred Journey for about 6 months, the majority of his care was given at home but on a few occasions he went into the unit for care. The entire staff was wonderful to us and both of our families that would visit him there. In November of 2014 we (I say we because I was allowed to stay with him) went into the unit and stayed until he passed away in December. We were treated with love, care and respect his entire stay. I still receive phone calls and letters from the staff there checking to see how I am doing. I am proud to call them my friends.

I came to visit a friend who was in her final days. I only came 2 times as she was only there 3 days. Each time I was there I was greeted warmly, and asked how I was doing. My friend was shown respect and treated with tender care. I have nothing but good things to say!

My family member has been fortunate enough to be in the care of Sacred Journey for almost 2 years and still counting. I have had pleasurable encounters with several of their RN's, LPN's, CNA's, case managers, their Chaplan and several other staff members. Everyone has always been very caring, polite, courteous, and respectful. My family has never had an issue with Sacred Journey's Hospice care in general. I would 1,000% recommend Sacred Journey to anyone seeking great, hospice care for their loved one.

I cared for my Mother at home. She was admitted to Sacred Journey's care on the advice of her primary care doctor. While Mother remained in my home, Sacred Journey sent nurses weekly to check on her. Mother was never examined by a Sacred Journey doctor. As her daughter and responsible for her care, I found the Sacred Journey staff to be arrogant and condescending. They talked to me as if I were mentally deficient, which I am not. The nurses often contradicted each other when making recommendations for Mother's medications, etc. I believe this place is all about money and the patients are merely the means to get said money. I will avoid them like the plague should I ever need hospice services again and I advise you to do so also. Would rate them minus 5 stars if it were possible.

I interviewed this provider

Like Used Car Salesmen!!! The called me at 8 pm, talked for 22 min. --Oh yah, you can bring pets, family can spend the night, everything wonderful!! The "reserved" a bed for the next morning. I called at 8 am, ready to go- no one knew what the heck I was talking about. They SCREWED US UP. I have a fragile senior and they sold me on their place. Turned out they only take people in their last 4-5 days of life. They wasted my time, the owner called and was hardly concerned about her employee mis-representing. I think this company used telemarketers?? STEER CLEAR OF THEM. Minus five stars.
