Four years ago, Amanda was admitted into hospice care. She was profoundly disabled and her only family was the staff at her group home. Despite being blind, deaf, and nonverbal, Amanda responded to the loving care provided by her group home family and her hospice team. She was moved to Cottage in the Meadow for symptom management just days before she died. Amanda received the compassion given to all hospice patients, and she died comfortable and pain free, among her loving friends and caregivers.
“I have found personal growth and healing through being able to assist hospice patients and their caregivers. It is an honor to provide the means and help for a person to leave this world with dignity and to help minimize their suffering.” Kathy Breshears, hospice nurse.
The hospice team brings a tremendous level of compassion, care and comfort, not just for the patients, but for the whole family and caregivers affected by the loss of a loved one. Thank you for supporting Compass Care. Your gifts ensure this comfort is available to all who need it.
