What Makes Us Special?

What Makes Us So Special?

 

Just ask many of the patients and families that we have served.  Here are some of the comments that they have shared regarding their care experience.

“Our family could not praise Hospice of the Miami Valley enough. They all jumped in and took over when we didn’t know how we were going to make it. Each person provided comfort to us and was so respectful to Dad. Crisis care was with us 24/7 until he passed. Amazing Care!”

Leadership

As a nurse-founded and led organization, we bring the integrity, compassion and dedication with a service driven mission.

“Hospice of the Miami Valley took care of my Dad exactly the way I hoped they would. Every person who came in contact with him treated him as if they were caring for a member of their own family. The respect and compassion were phenomenal. They made my Dad’s dying wish a reality…to die peacefully, in his home, pain free.”                                                                                                                                                                                     –  Mary, Daughter

 

Responsiveness

Our team prides itself on quickly responding to your call. When you need us, we come visit.  We are available 24 hours a day, and can admit an individual to hospice care the same day.

“I want to thank you for the tremendous support your staff provides. They’re so caring, sensitive, unhurried, positive, dependable and thorough. The weekend staff has also been so attentive and responsive.

With the support of Hospice of the Miami Valley, and adult day services, it has been doable to care for Dad at home. Your involvement greatly added to Dad’s, and our, quality of life. The respite you provided renewed my husband and I, and was a good experience for Dad, giving him new perspective on his care in these later years of life.

Thank you for being a part of our lives, during these uncertain times of continuing health changes.”

“Hospice of the Miami Valley played an integral part of my father-in-law’s final days. The care they provided at home, making his last days as comfortable as possible, allowed him to keep his sense of humor with the family who could visit in familiar surroundings. Our family gives thanks to the entire staff of Hospice of the Miami Valley in providing the level of care that exceeded our expectations, and allowed him the opportunity to live out his final days at home surrounded by loved ones.”
