“I have been an RN for 50 years, and still at the end of my mother’s life I needed reassurance that I was giving her the best possible care. Everyone from Gateway was knowledgeable, capable, comfortable in their role, and supportive. They were so kind to my mother and so willing to do whatever was needed…I am so grateful to all of the hospice staff. Thank you forever!”
“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.”
“The staff at Gateway Hospice are my eyes and ears for when I am not able to be with my patients. They provide excellent care and communication to not just me, but the facilities and families they serve.”
“The entire team that took care of my mom were awesome. I can’t thank the RN Case Manager enough for sitting with me and helping keep mom comfortable her last days. The Chaplain was such a blessing as she prayed and sang to mom, as mom sang along with her. Each visit became more special! I could really feel the love and care each person has for their patients and their families. The support and encouragement they gave me, as well as answer my many questions, will never be forgotten!”
“Gateway Hospice is always a pleasure to work with. They provide excellent care and support to both the patient and family. As a nurse in a facility, it is imperative that we work well with a hospice. Gateway Hospice always informs us of any changes and includes us in the care of the patient and family.”
