Family Stories

We are grateful when family and residents feel compelled to share their great care experiences. Click on “Family Stories” to read more.

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.

We want to thank each and every one of you for the love and care you had given to our mom. She always looked forward to your visits and made her feel better after you left. You also gave us the comfort to make us feel better and what to expect. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! (Sioux City)

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.

We can never thank (Sioux City Hospice volunteer Brian) enough for all the TLC you gave Betsy at the nursing home. If anyone has wings on this Earth, it’s definitely you. And now you have a special angel in Heaven watching over you, and that angel is Betsy!
