We arrived home from the hospital with my Dad Sunday evening. Brittany was the first hospice nurse that we met with. She was very through, caring and helpful. Everything happened so fast that we had not been able to hire sitters to help us yet. So on Monday morning my Mother and I did our best to care for my Dad before I had to leave for work but we were unable to change his soiled sheets and hospital gown because we were not experienced on how to move my Dad to be able to do this. We knew that another hospice nurse was coming that morning and I left thinking that she would take care of this when she arrived. The hospice nurse did come to care for my Dad that morning but when I came home from work that evening I was appalled to see that he was still wearing the same soiled gown and that the sheets had not been changed. There were clean sheets there but she just placed a pad underneath him instead. We had an experienced sitter with us that evening and my cousin, who is a paramedic, had come to visit and the three of us had him and his sheets changed within 10 minutes. There were people there when the nurse came that could have helped her change the sheets while she was there but she chose to just cover the issue instead. I feel that this is not how you show respect to a person who is dying and their family.

My mother was on hospice with Alacare in her home near Union Springs. I cannot begin to express how grateful our entire family is for their caring and compassionate love for my mother and my father during this very difficult time. What a joy to have the memory of having her at home during her last weeks, days, and hours! We could not have had the conversations we had and she could not have experienced the peace she experienced in another setting such as a hospital or ER. My family actually circled her in the hours before her death and sang church hymnals to her and we could tell that she heard us and knew the peace surrounding her before she took her last breaths. The nurses were PHENOMINAL and reacted quickly to our needs. My advice to any family considering hospice is to reach out to Alacare and let them show you how their entire team of compassionate professionals can help not only the patient, but the entire family.........Ken Cope
