Hospice Care

Care Initiatives Hospice and their staff were incredibly comforting to our family, and took remarkable care of my mother during the final months of her battle with ALS. We are so thankful for their support and advocacy for her comfort. They took the time to help her with quality of life projects that were important to her, and an incredible surprise and treasure for her family. They went above and beyond to ensure that we created lasting memories that we would all cherish. It takes special people to be able to interact with families anticipating the loss of a loved one, all while focusing on the transition of the loved one to their new home. I recently recommended them to my mother-in-law for a family member. They also had an incredible experience.

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.
