I cannot thank Hospice Hawaii enough for their support, guidance and compassion. Every stage of my Mother's decline was extremely appreciated by myself and my family. Mom was always kept comfortable and every one of her visits from either, the Chaplin, Wes, who always lifted Moms spirits and made sure she happy and peaceful....could not leave her room without laughter. Yvonne, Tiffany and Susie were the Hospice Nurses who were there to care for her pain and suffering levels, and notify those who needed to be notified about her passing. Again, the nurses were very efficient, caring and very much appreciated. When Mom needed something to make it easier for her, Hospice was able to provide a hospital bed and other equipment she needed. When Allison, the Social Worker visited me, she answered all my questions and was very compassionate. I will always treasure my hand-casting piece from Jessica. We did three generations of our hands intertwined...Mom's, my daughters hand and mine. Very, very special. I cannot tell you how much happiness it gives me to see our hands on display at home. I believe we waited too long before Mom made her choice to go with hospice. Hospice Hawaii was absolutely the best possible road for my Mother....she was happy right up to the end, and made the transition with dignity from all the help we received from Hospice Hawaii. Thank you to the whole staff! It takes very special people to do what you do.

For more than six months, Hospice Hawaii helped us tend to our mother with loving hands and caring hearts. They lifted her spirits and ours. They offered bathing assistance, nursing care, even healing massage, all in the comfort of our home. They let us know what to expect, so my brothers and sister could come back to Honolulu to enjoy time and reminisce with her. We were all together as she gently left this world, to the sounds of guitar, ukulele and her grandchildren singing to her.

Our daughter Haley was just 9 years old when we started with Hospice Hawaii. She was terminally ill with brain and spinal cord cancer. She were in hospice care for almost 2 years before she passed. I'm not sure how we would have made it through without them. Hospice Hawaii has some of the most wonderful staff working with families of children that are sick. My advice is to use them early in the process if you can. Don't wait.

They murdered my grandmother. My grandmother was planning to go to Las Vegas that weekend. My mother was with her every night at the hospice. She would ask and log down every medication my grandmother was given. The nurse (will not give name but a local nurse) ( I was there) gave my grandmother Ativan and morphine. We knew this because my mother asked her. Before that medication my family and I were talking with my grandmother and she seemed fine, ready to go to Vegas. This method is murder and illegal in Hawaii. Put them out and not give them water or food. That night I was trying to keep my grandmother hydrated. The nurse stopped me. The nurse finally took me out of the room and tried to convince me that it was a natural death. In the end she threatened to call the cops on me because I was calling it murder and she insisted it was a natural death to put someone to sleep and not give them water or food. My grandmother died before she could go to Vegas because the nurse killed her. In fact the nurse did not log down that she had added Ativan with the morphine...... Get a trust fund or will stating that someone (family member) will be in charge or they will murder your loved one just to make space......... Still trying to fight this murder. My grandmother did not have cancer and was not in pain. She broke her hip and had a bad kidney. Her wish was to go to Vegas which her ticket was purchased and she was supposed to leave that week that the nurse murdered her. Watch out. most of the nurses were excellent, but one of them actually murdered (don't know how many) but she murdered my grandmother. 1st she was in Kailua then transferred to Palolo.
