We receive wonderful hearfelt letters ever day from the families we serve. Here are just a few of the comments we've received about the caring staff and compassionate services we provide:
"Thank you to ALL staff and volunteers who were so kind to my husband and me during our week with Hospice. I don't want to single any one person out because you were all so carig and kind to us. We were thankful to have so many who cared."
"Your thoughtful, caring and straightforward words and care made our loss much easier to bear. When we couldn't be with Dad, we knew he was well cared for. We mourn our earthly loss, but rejoice for his eternal life. Thank you for all you do. May God continue to bless your work."
"Over the years, I have heard such wonderful things about Hospice of North Iowa. But until recently, I did not truly understand what this meant. I, too, can now sing your praises. I don't know what I would have done without you. From the caring and compassionate doctors and nurses, the amazing social workers and chaplains, the warm helpful office staff and all others who touched my life over the past few months...your are truly amazing individuals. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
"The Lord put special people like those from Hospice of North Iowa on this earth to comfort grieving families. You obviously care about what you are doing...it is not just a job. You have feelings for your patients and families and that is why we want to say THANK YOU Hospice for caring and loving our dad. We are so grateful to have had you a part of our lives."
"You are truly angels on earth. Thank you for all you have done for me and my family."
"It has almost been a year since our father passed away. We just wanted to send something to show our appreciation for everything you did for Dad. He so looked forward to your visits; the care yoiu provided to him was truly invaluable. You not only support the individual, but provide comfort to the entire family. We can never thank you enough."
"There are no words to express how very grateful we felt that we were referred to the 'Hospice House'. I felt the care mom received while there was exceptional not only in profession but from the heart. You not only took care of mom, but family also. My staying with mom was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. But for that time I am also very thankful. Your caring helped ease the pain of her passing in my heart. You are all truly angels."
"Thank you for all your cards, newsletters, and words of encouragement. They meant alot to me. They have really helped me get through some bad times since my husband passed; especially our 60th anniversary in June. You were so good to him and all of us during his last days. It meant alot to me just knowing he was comfortable and in no pain. Again, thank you for everything."
"The gratitude of patients, families and friends is a very special reward."
