When my mother was in the hospital in Wilmington. Hospice swooped into her hospital room like vultures. Neither my Mother nor our family had asked them to go there. I asked them what service they could offer that she was not already receiving. They could not/did not answer that question. I had to tell them to leave her room several times. They were very intrusive and agressive when they were not wanted.

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

Have them respect the patient's wishes and cease trying to force their services onto families.

Dear Haven10419, We visit with a patient when a doctor has made a referral or a family member has asked us to visit. It is a difficult time for the family when a patient has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. Our staff have great passion for our mission and truely believe no one should take the end of life journey alone. However, we also respect that everyone should choose how they wish to take this journey and if it is without our services this is the patient's decision and our staff is expected to respect that decision. Thank you for sharing your experience. I hope your mother has recovered and is doing well.

Three years ago, my father in-law was admitted into Hospice of the lower cape fear. It really was my first experience with awaiting the passing of someone, much less a loved one. My family was treated with respect and love. They truly made sure that he was well taken care of and comfortable until the end. The environment was peaceful and full of love and care. I can never thank them enough for the gentleness, the sincerity and care that they displayed. It really felt as if they cared and it was not just about a pay check. They treated everyone as if they were a part of the family. They even provided refreshments for the visitors. May the Lord continue to bless them, keep them and cause His face to shine upon them.
