"The loss of my mother was painful in itself, but with the help of the hospice team I was able to understand each step and accept the final days of my mother’s life. Thank you for that emotional and financial support for my family. We are in debt to you for eternity. God bless hospice, and all who support this wonderful friend of my family."
"My dad always told us how wonderful all of his caretakers were and he looked forward to seeing every single person. We knew we could trust and count on you. No words can express how grateful we are for all of you."
"This was my first experience with hospice and it was incredible. Everyone we had contact with were professional, caring and willing to do whatever it takes to make us comfortable. They made us feel as though we were the only ones who needed attention at any moment. Thanks Hospice!"
"At Palliative CareCenter and Hospice of Catawba Valley, all my expectations were exceeded. Your staff, the quality of care, the setting, our volunteers – all gave my mother and our family a level of service that I wasn’t aware existed today."
"Thank you for making my father and I and our family feel welcome to NC, and feel as though we made good friends while my father was passing and when he passed. It wasn’t easy and still isn’t, but you did all you could to try and make it easier. We were truly blessed to be home at our time of need."
"Mother was hospitalized during the Christmas season and passed on Christmas Eve. I was still able to reach hospice workers during that time and they went to great lengths to find help for me. They showed great compassion and gave me professional, sound information regarding the issues we faced. God bless you for the work you do."
