“My mom was only four foot seven. She was a giant in some ways even though she was short. She’s always helped me get back up when I’ve got down – giving me advice or whatever, you know. She was always a good cook, and, of course, the Sunday dinners were always spectacular. Mom was a Christian-minded person, and Dad was too and they emphasized it to us kids. When I think of Serenity Hospice, I think about the caring. They was going to be there with us. There’s more respect. Respect for the loved one, respect for the family. You can see it. I would highly recommend Serenity Hospice for any family. They care for their job, they care about the patients, they care for the family. It’s hard on a family – harder than what you think. Serenity HospiceCare has given my family the peace of mind when it matters the most.”
“Sweetheart of a man, David was. He just had this smile. It was kind of a little crooked smile. Very handsome. I had taken David in for a doctor’s appointment. His doctor told us that there was nothing else they could do. He talked with us about Serenity Hospice and asked if that would be something we would be interested in. We weren’t home probably an hour and we had already gotten a call from them setting up appointments for the next day and get his care started. It was just amazing how quick it all happened. They were all so very good to him. So professional, so loving. The minute you hear from your care provider that there’s nothing else they can do, that that’s the time that you need to pick up the phone. Call Serenity and let them know that you need their help because, trust me, you do not know what is ahead of you, and you are going to need their help. Not just for your loved one, for your patient, but for yourself. They are there for you and your family also. Everyone that came into my home, they became part of my family. Everything is taken care of. Your medicines are delivered to your door, you don’t have to worry about any of that because Serenity Hospice takes care of that for you. You know, you’re there to give your attention and your love and care to your family member, and they’re there for you and for your family member. They’re just wonderful people to work with.”
“The first experience with Serenity HospiceCare was with my mother. I think my father let us know that we need to involve Serenity because he had seen them with mom. My dad told Serenity HospiceCare all of his ailments and they listened and they helped him, along with her. And he liked that. It was very important for my father to stay at home. I worried a lot that may not be possible but Serenity HospiceCare taught us how to move him, how to lift him. We felt great for my dad because he had everything he needed. Socks, lotions, medication, even a certain pillow they brought dad, I think he was totally comfortable. What brought me the greatest peace was knowing if I did not know what to do, I could call. Serenity HospiceCare was as good for me as it was my father. Because none of us are medical people, we didn’t know what to do, and we would just call. You’ re just not alone; they’re there for you 24-7. Before I thought Hospice meant the end. It taught me it does not mean the end. It’s assistance, it’s encouragement, Serenity HospiceCare made a difference that we could not have done without them.”
