"Hospice was very involved even though it was for only 10 days. The called me at home in the evening to give me emotional support. They stayed for many hours at the assisted living facility after Dad died to provide support. They attended the funeral. They provided equipment, hospital bed, and walker very quickly. They came out to meet the family within hours of the first phone call. They offered me assistance after dad died. They were wonderful!"
