The support and encouragement they gave me, as well as answer my many questions, will never be forgotten!” –Daughter of patient

“The care my mother received from the Gateway team was EXCELLENT. I would highly recommend their services.”  -Daughter of patient  

“Although my father was only under hospice care for 7 days; not a day went by [that] he did not receive care. Not once did I see him in pain or want or need for anything. My family was always informed of his situation. We cannot thank you enough for the care provided for my father. I can’t imagine how someone can give love and care without knowing whom they are caring for. Thank you for everything.” – Son of patient

“Rev. Sue and Neal (RN) were fantastic! All staff- day or night- were very helpful and caring. My mom was kept comfortable and peaceful as much as possible. Neal was very intuitive- talking to myself, children and grandkids about telling my mom that we loved her and keeping things “normal activity wise” for her last days, very helpful advice during this time. We were able to stay focused on her care, while he remembered to help us.” – Daughter of patient

Most of our dealings were with Ken (RN Case Manager) and Wayne (Spiritual Care Coordinator) who were very helpful and supportive.” – Daughter of patient

“The compassion and care my father received from hospice was outstanding. I don’t know how we would have gotten through that time without the support from this incredible team of caregivers. Knowing that our dad’s needs for assistance were being taken care of gave us great peace of mind. He was always treated with the utmost respect, compassion, patience and gentleness. The team worked seamlessly during his last days, prepared for whatever might transpire. It was important to have direct communication with his nurses when we felt something needed to be addressed. 24/7 someone was available and it made my dad’s last week’s far more comfortable and brought all of us, including Dad, great comfort.” – Daughter of patient
