My husband is worse now than when he went into hospice. I have to stay up all night to watch him. When am I supposed to sleep? It is getting worse. No help. I could not even get them here in time to get to my Dr's appt.

Would not recommend this hospice for anyone in need. Most all of the coordination fell on my family and our family doctor. We have a nurse in the family and instead of her being able to just be a grieving family member she had to do the majority of the skilled care. We do not feel our loved one got the care or respect she deserved.

I would not recommend that anyone place their loved one in this hospice facility. When my aunt was placed here the nurses immediately began giving her heavy doses of opioids and continued doing so for some time despite repeated requests from family members that they cease, as she was not in the kind of constant pain that opioids treat, and opioids actually aggravated certain aspects of her condition. Nevertheless, they gave her opioids at the drop of a hat--the real breaking point was when we found a nurse had given her Dilaudid when she complained that her leg hurt. The pain turned out to have come from a bedsore that she developed because the nurses were not turning her every two hours as promised. The problem with these drugs is that they rendered my aunt entirely unable to communicate with her family. Without them, she was able to read and respond to the people around her. With them, she was either asleep or totally disoriented and unable to communicate. If you ask me, that's not any kind of quality of life. Eventually we had to make sure someone was with her 24/7 so that she was not surreptitiously drugged until we could get her home, where she was much happier. To be fair, certain nurses in this hospice are great, but overall this experience was nothing short of traumatic for our family.

Our family is very grateful to the Hospice of the Piedmont for the care provided to our mother during the last year of her life. We were impressed by the untiring attention given by Lee and Bonnie (nurses) and by Michael who all cared for and about our beloved matriarch in a very meaningful way. You allowed us to honor her wishes and helped her to die in the way that she wished-with dignity and without pain.

Our family is very grateful for the care provided by Hospice of the Piedmont for our beloved mother/grandma. Their service ensured safety and dignity for mom while she spent the last 2 months of her life at our home. We sincerely thank Dr. Timothy Short, nurse Terry, home health aid Lilly, social worker Laura, Chaplin Dan, and other Hospice staff. We definitely leaned on them during our journey in preserving the dignity and respect for mom.
