United Hospice helped my family tremendously by caring for my mother when she was terminally ill. It was much more than one kind person taking care of my mother. It was a well-coordinated team effort and humanistic approach that made an awful experience bearable. Thank you to all of the wonderful and caring people who helped ease my mother into her end of life through the high level of care provided.
