What Our Patients Say
My father was a veteran. He was hard working all his life. When he got sick and was dying from heart failure, we did not know where to turn. After all, Dad always had all the answers and was the strong one of the family. I’m so grateful that we learned about Arclight Hospice. Every one of you is fantastic. We were so overwhelmed when Dad was in the hospital, and we knew that we had to reach out to Hospice. It felt like defeat until we met with the nurse and social worker, who explained that Hospice is not giving up. It is just changing priorities. My Dad was able to be comfortable even on the way home from the hospital
We had very gentle, kind home health aides. They laughed at Dad’s awful jokes. He died at home as he wanted to with all of us at his bedside. Thank you, everyone, at Arclight Hospice!
I can’t say enough about everyone had Arclight Hospice. My wife had cancer. It spread throughout her body. She went from being an active woman to someone who became bedridden. She fought cancer as long as she could but eventually, she was just too tired, sick, and in too much pain. It was horrible to see her like that. She was so young. Her oncologist made the arrangements for her to get help from Arclight Hospice. I wish we had known about Arclight Hospice services sooner. The nurses, aides, and everyone was so kind. They got her pain under control. She was able to be at peace during her final days. Thank you, everyone, at Hospice. You are all a blessing.
Mom had Alzheimer’s disease. Her behavior was wearing us out! We did not know how to help her, but we did not want to place Mom in a nursing home. We got help from Arclight’s dementia program. The Home Health Aides treated mom so gently. The nurses and social worker gave us tips on how to handle her behavior. The doctors found a combination of medicines that helped. You are all the best! Thank you, Arclight, for making this difficult time better for Mom and our entire family.
