"We had supportive care for seven months and they were amazing and made me feel more relaxed. We transitioned to Hospice and they made that transition easy for us. I will always highly recommend Hospice & Community Care to everyone."

"The staff and nurses that cared for my mother were generous and kind. They alleviated her fears and were very nurturing. We couldn't have continued to take care of her at home, as she wanted their support and care. We greatly appreciate all they did for her."

Read More Testimonials

"My husband had three teams: Supportive, Home Hospice and Inpatient care. All teams were caring, supportive and amazing. The 24-hour phone line was so helpful for a person like me with no medical background. I have no words to express how grateful I am for the care my husband received."
