To all the workers from Care Initiatives Hospice - Greenfield from the bottom of my heart, I say thank you. Your calls seemed to come when I needed them most. You showed love with your ever visit. Thank you.

Thank you (Greenfield) so much for the beautiful candle. Everything happened so fast. Had you spent time with Mom you would have enjoyed her sparkling personality. We applaud you for all that you do. We are so fortunate to have such compassion at our fingertips. Thanks again!

I am writing this letter to express my gratitude and to recognize Mechanicsville Specialty Care in Mechanicsville, IA, one of your Care Initiative care centers. My mother has been a resident there for over 9-1/2 years. She has Alzheimer's and is currently on hospice care. 
The staff is not only professional and skilled, they are caring, patient and compassionate. They give their smiles freely and can calm and reassure my mother in her confusion and anxiety. When I have visited her through the window (since COVID) I have seen my mother look up at a staff member with the look of a child seeking guidance and direction and I am convinced they are her family. The staff has changed in those 9-1/2 years but I have come to know many of them very well and they are part of my family too. 
Everyone ... are to be highly commended for their dedication in the past and heroic efforts during the COVID 19 Pandemic! I also recognize and praise the entire Care Initiative Hospice team. How reassuring it is that I can trust they are caring for and protecting my mother in such a loving way. Isn't that what anyone would want for their loved one?

These people are wonderful. They moved quick when we needed them and made the last few days of my fathers life as peaceful as they could. Thank you.

I wish we would have started hospice sooner for my wife. She appreciated the care. There was one lady she really hit it off with and the staff were always there when we needed. The social worker has been attentive in following up with me. I was very pleased with Care Initiatives Hospice - Greenfield.

It’s obviously difficult and scary to think about a loved one’s time coming to an end, but for my family, it came down to the comfortability and helping my grandma feel loved in her final days. I didn’t know a lot about hospice until this point and that made me really nervous, but we had someone by our side from Care Initiatives through every step. They were very knowledgeable and answered every question with compassion. My family never felt alone, and I think it takes quality people to achieve that. I couldn’t have asked for better people to have at our side.
