Hospice CAHPS Honors is a prestigious annual review that recognizes agencies that continuously provide quality care as measured by the patients’ experiences and those of their caregivers. This award acknowledges the highest performing agencies by analyzing the performance of Hospice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) satisfaction measures.
“I’m starting to feel my feet are back on the ground, that I have a handle on navigating through this disease. I’ve gained positive energy by taking control of this, I need to be in control. I do feel empowered.”
“When they moved mom to comfort care at the nursing home, I thought that was the same as hospice. Little did I know how much more support
we could get not only for mom, but for us as a family, with having hospice services for her.”
"All of the staff members along the way were excellent! I really appreciate the fact that they could take time to help our children (patient's grandchildren) through the process as we needed to spend so much time with my Dad."
"I thank all of them. They were the best. They came right away, sat and talked to us, told us what to expect, what to give him. They were there at the end and helped us through the living and dying process."
"We were more than satisfied with the devotion of all Hospice staff. They made a tough time much easier for me."
"From the first meeting to the day we called to let the staff know my Mom had passed, we were extremely happy with the care and support we all received. You were a blessing when we really needed one."
