When curing my father's leukemia was no longer an option, we wanted him to be comfortable for whatever time he had left. Hinds Hospice helped us to bring him home and taught us how to care for him. We had an amazing 5 weeks with him at home thanks to the wonderful support of Hinds. Dad passed away in March, but the support didn't stop there. The Center for Grief and Loss has stepped in to support us as we try to find a new normal for our family. Each month I receive mailings from them to help me cope. I will forever be grateful to Hinds Hospice. The best advice I can give is don't wait to call. Get information early before you are in crisis.

I wouldn't make any changes. The care was amazing. I just wish more people knew about it.

Hinds Hospice helped me through the most difficult time of my life, the loss of my mom.
Not only did my mom receive the best possible care, our family also received amazing support from the hospice team…
We had in home care provided by Hinds Hospice, I honestly don’t know what we would have done without them, mom’s team went beyond the call, if she need supplies or medication,they would make sure it was delivered to us & if wasn’t going to be here in a timely manner her nurse would go out of her way to pick it up & bring it to her… This is just a small example of the wonderful care they provide...
They made sure that we knew at all times what was happening to our mom & what we should expect right up to the end of mom’s life… By inviting hospice into our home, we were able to spend every last moment with mom, we didn’t have to do it alone. They were just a phone call away 24 hrs. a day....
They felt like a part of our family…
Hospice is not only there for the patient, they are there for the family as well, to see that your emotional & spiritual needs are met… They are there through out your time of grief, they don’t just disappear when your loved one leaves you…. They have wonderful events for you to attend, to help with your loss, I really needed that help, it's a comfort to know that you don't have to go it alone....
Thanks is just not enough for what these wonderful people provide for those in need…

I had heard of Hinds Hospice and never imaged I would need their services until my Dad's cancer had reach the point of no return. Looking back now I am even more grateful to have that support at that time by people who truly care.
God Bless Nancy Hinds and all the staff at Hinds Hospice.

My sister call Hinds and he spent his last weeks on this earth under the extraordinary care of the staff at the Hinds Hospice Home. My family, 5 brothers and 2 sisters came into town from all over to see our dad through the last weeks of his life. The Hinds Home provided us a place to meet and discuss and spend time with our Dad. When my Dad did pass away I remember the staff asking thoughtful questions that I was not able to think of at the time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not a thing.

Hinds Hospice, and Hinds Hospice Angel Babies are both amazing. We had Hinds Hospice come out and care for my Dad in his last few weeks here before he passed away of Brain Cancer. My husband and I have lost 2 of our boys ~ Myles died of S.I.D.S., and I lost Max in utero @ 17 weeks. The Angel Babies program has been wonderful to us, the director - Kathy Cromwell, and all of the staff. I have taken Grief Counseling, we went through a support group, we do an Angel Baby walk, we do an Ornament making at Christmas, the list goes on. I have never met a group of more compassionate people. There is no other type of support for families who are going through the loss of their child, I've even recommended them to people out of Fresno County - to at least get online/email/phone support. They deserve more than 5 stars on their rating.

No changes at all!
