“My father's peaceful death came as a result of his family's commitment to see that he was well-cared for at home. The hospice professionals were with us every step of the way and helped us cope. Caring for my father, even with the help of professionals, was the most difficult thing I have ever done. My sister and I devoted ourselves to his care for those 29 days, but neither of us has any regrets. We know we did the right thing.”

Many families and friends have powerful stories to share.
