My family and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to each and everyone of the wonderful people who cared for my husband. He was always treated with devoted and kind hands and was made as comfortable and pain free as possible.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for getting my mom into the Hospice INN. I had no idea there was such a beautiful place filled with beautiful, compassionate and caring people. My husband and I, and many members of my family were in complete awe at the care my mother received.
