[00:00:01] Singer: [Woman singing] Ask for us by name. Hospice Alliance.
[00:00:10] Trish: I wish everyone knew about Hospice Alliance.
[00:00:13] Sharon: What sets Hospice Alliance apart is that it's the nonprofit organization, it's community owned. A caring circle of people that wants to provide care for not only the patient, but also for the family.
[00:00:29] Rita: And any of the families I've talked to, majority of them have said to me, I wish I would've called you sooner.
[00:00:35] Bret: And it's a nice comfort for, you know, for papa at that time, having the same person coming and checking on you, you build kind of a relationship there as well. And, you know, it's, there's a lot of anxiety. There's a lot of stress and I think that really reduces and puts the person more at ease when, you know, you've gotten to know the person that's there to take care of you and they've gotta vested interest in taking care of you.
[00:00:58] Kris: I think the caliber of person that they. Send to the home. Each one that I've ever run into or met and got to know, they are like still talking to me to this day. I mean, they're just wonderful people.
[00:01:11] Sharon: We have our chaplains, we have our volunteer program, which is a great program.
[00:01:17] Tammy: From my standpoint, hospice care is an emotional and spiritual and physical, being there for the patient and the family.
[00:01:27] Bret: I do wish everybody knew about Hospice Alliance and the options that they bring and the services that they bring to their family. It's very important.
[00:01:35] Sharon: We have our medical directors. The nurses come in, you know, assess the patient, speak with the doctor on a regular basis, give them an update on how their patient is doing because the doctor is still an integrate part of what we do.
[00:01:51] Trish: I would particularly recommend Hospice Alliance because of the facility that they have. It is an incredibly homelike, comfortable and supportive facility, particularly for an instance where the last days at home might not be ideal.
[00:02:11] Rita: The Hospice House provides care 24/7, 365 days to people who maybe don't have any other options.
[00:02:20] Jeff: We, as a family, as much as we took care of her and tried to do our best for years, we weren't professionals and, you know, just the ability to have around the clock care and have, you know, caring professional staff here to, to help us out, you know, that was the big thing.
[00:02:36] Sharon: It's a journey that, you know, we all must take someday.
[00:02:40] We're a part of that journey with the families.
[00:02:42] Kris: I tell everybody that I know who's in that situation. Get a team. You need help. You can't do it alone. You don't have to do it alone.
[00:02:52] Rita: Just call and let us come meet with you and tell you what we can do to give you more life at the end of your life.
[00:02:59] Singer: [Woman singing] Ask for us by name, Hospice Alliance.
