Mercy Care is the areas hometown hospice and it shows. their staff is kind, caring and compassionate. I would recommend Mercy Care over all of the for profit hospices in the Myrtle beach area.
OK, this will obviously be biased, but Mercy Care provides the ultimate in best quality care to patients and their families. Mercy has been around the longest, 30 years, this year, and, it is the only legitimate non-profit hopice in Horry County, but those facts aren't always the telling signs. How do I know that Mercy is providing the best care? The family satisfaction survey results are heartwarming and indicate that care was excellent throughout the patient's experience, the first week telephonic surveys indicate that needs are being met at the beginning of care, the number of purple angel pins awarded to staff because of positive patient experience comments is skyrocketing, and the Buckingham 12 internal staff satisfaction surveys came back at mostly 100% with a 62% return rate!
As a not for profit, Mercy Care provides quality care to the entire community they serve. There are numerous services (unrelated to hospice) that reach into the community. Providing grief counseling care for children that have suffered a loss within the community schools that may otherwise go overlooked. These children also receive special attention through Mercy's "HAPPY HEARTS" day camp. Another area that Mercy addresses is the needs that community veterans may face. the MERCY HONORS program provides a simple, yet poigiant, "thank you" to the veteran through a special pinning (plus personalized certificate). Last year alone, Mercy honored over 300 veterans and many found healing through this program. Mercy has also reached out to numerous patients to help with psychosocial / financial needs at a critical time of their life. Mercy is about experiencing life rather than focusing upon death. This brings comfort to patient and family alike.
