Thank you for the care you provided for our mom and for the support that you have shown our family. Our mom dearly loved Raelyn and Lori, and we found comfort in the words of Deb, Darci, Brenda, and Beth. You are all very special people.

I would like to thank your staff on every shift at Care Initiatives - State Center for looking after my friend and neighbor. I would appreciate very much if you could let the evening and night shifts know how she is a kind and loving person and has been throughout her life. I'm thankful that she has a place to turn to in the time of her life where she needs more assistance.

I think so often of you all and hope you are doing OK, staying safe and well. I look forward to when it becomes safer for me to travel again and I can come by for a visit and to thank you in person for your care of R.

I love how all you Hospice caregivers are so involved with your patients and families. Caring for our loved ones, keeping us updated and explaining what is going on. I feel so much better for Dad that you are there for him. Supporting him, answering his questions, giving him someone to talk to that is knowledgeable about what is going on with Mom.

Thank you for all your (Care Initiatives Hospice - Greenfield) help with our mom. She enjoyed everyone that came and helped take care of her and just ...talked to her. She was always smiling when Ashley came. So with everything that you guys helped with, even help(ed) Dad out, we send this donation in mom's name to help with whatever needed. Mom would (have) wanted us to do this. So again, thank you very much.

My mother was in the memory unit. The staff took such good care of her. She felt loved by all the staff. Everyone always greets you with a warm smile and hello. I knew my mom's care was great and they always would take time to listen to your concerns and address them right away. I highly recommend Heritage for the care they give. I knew I could leave and felt comfortable in knowing my mom was in a good place.
