Center for Hospice Care would like to recognize the wonderful care provided by all of our nurses, home health aides, social workers, pastoral staff, bereavement counselors and volunteers. Here is what some of the families we have cared for have to say:

"I have been meaning to write this for some time. My mom passed away a year ago at Wedgewood Pines in South Bend. You have cared for me with meaningful information and cards in that year. It has been so helpful and meant so much to me. Thank you! Hospice used to bring depressing thoughts to mind for me, like sickness, sadness, death, and the end. Now I know that Hospice means journey, care, compassion and love -- for those who pass, and also for those they leave behind."

" My mom passed in Elkhart in November. I can't express my heartfelt thanks enough as to how everyone treated her. She was given dignity and respect in her final months. Plus, the support to my family as we cared for her was and is tremendous. Merry Christmas to everyone! Thank you for all of the hard work that you all do on a daily basis to help families deal with such a difficult time in their lives."

"I lost my mother in June 2014 and the Center for Hospice Care in Plymouth served my family. I would have been lost without them and could never repay the debt. I was able to fulfill the promise to my mother that she could be home and not pass away in a hospital or nursing home. I will forever be grateful for the compassion and kindness shown during the most difficult days of my life. I believe they are angels on earth . Thank you!"

"I just want you to know how much your time spent with us was appreciated. I couldn't have done it by myself."

"The Hospice nurses gently trained me, my sister and dad on how to take care of my mom and make her comfortable. She died peacefully at home where she wanted to be with her family around her."

"Thank you for quietly helping so many people...at a very confusing and stressful time in people's lives. May God bless you and your work."

"You weren't with us for long, however, what you did to help us at the time we needed you most meant more than words can express!"

"To all the staff at Hospice House - thank you for your love and warm care of my father. My mother said, 'they are like saints.' We appreciate all you've done."
