Testimonials

  • “There were still things to get organized: I needed assistive devices in the home and had no idea how or where I was going to find them let alone the funds. Once again there they were, “What do you need, let’s check and see what we have”; Raised toilet seat, bed rail, wedge pillow, and volunteer driver they were there every step. Once we got home our needs changed quickly; we now needed a commode and wheelchair. I panicked … one frantic text to our Home Visiting volunteer and one phone call to Beth Donovan Hospice and 2 hours later we were equipped for the weekend and the next chapter in this journey.”
  • “Thank you for all the wonderful weeks. ‘Hospice day’ is a highlight! Thank you as well to all the volunteers – they add so much to our day out!”
  • “I can’t thank the hospice enough for all their help, concern and mostly professionalism they showed in sorting out Grandma’s dilemma. It’s people like you that make our community a great place to live.”

  • “The meals are so tasty and well planned. The driver (Shawn) is a real gentleman and a pleasure to ride with – the highlight of my week.”
  • “For us, to have the hospice volunteer come in every week was a godsend; she was so warm and joyful, and she truly paid attention to the particulars of our family. She learned that my sister enjoyed mystery stories so began a story which they shared each week, both looking forward to the next chapter. I know that my sister must have loved their tie together sitting outside in the warm summer air, hearing a new chapter each week.”
