Review for INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE INC, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer, we were told by the medical staff that he was incurable and could not offer any treatment and referred him to hospicecare. We were devastated and thought this was denying him care. I found IAHPC through the web, called and talked to a staff member who listened to me, clarified what hospice care is, gave us information about hospices in my area and provided ongoing support. It seem very little, but it meant the world to us.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their willingness to help and to spend time hearing about our concerns and needs.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Warm, reassuring and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help more people and families.

Ways to make it better...

I had known about hospice care earlier.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & I received information about hospice.
