Butte Home health was incredible, any time you need outside help is always an uncertainty. Katie Bowers was part of our Family through out this difficult process. The Love, communication, care, support was un matched by any. Thank You to Robert Love and his staff. We could not have done it with out you.

I have had the opportunity to have Butte Home Health help with a few of my family members. Each time I have had a great experience. Butte was always there when I needed help and just a phone call away if I needed encouragement or advice. Butte also had follow up calls after their assistance was over. I would highly recommend Butte Home Health for any of their services.

Hi!
I am in constant awe of this company. Not only do they treat the patients with the highest level of care but they treat employees like family. I have really enjoyed working with BHH. They are allowing me to chase my passion of treating patients in their home with lots of love and support. I love how they go above and beyond to put the patient as a person in an environment that they want to be in to heal the best they can. As a nurse, this has been the most rewarding job I have had.

I have had a professional relationship with Butte Home Health and Hospice, starting in 1988 when I was the Director of Pharmacy at Option Care, and continuing until my recent retirement as owner of Apothecary Options. I know the Hospice nursing staff, the social workers, the medical director, and most of the ancillary staff. They do phenomenal work! The greater Chico area is fortunate to have such skilled, dedicated, and caring people providing Hospice and Home Health services to our loved ones.

I video recorded a group of interviews with Butte Home Health before the pandemic. Amazing healthcare professionals! I was struck by the how personally invested they are in their patient’s outcome and their entire family’s well being during such trying times. Home healthcare is a wonderful thing and Butte Home Health and Hospice is the best!

Back in 2012, I placed my husband on Butte Home Health and Hospice for Hospice care. During the 6 months he was on services, the care was exceptional. The Nurses that managed his care in the office were there to help me with all my questions, fears, concerns; the nurses who came to the house treated him as a friend; the Aides who came to assist him with personal care gave him dignity. When the Chaplain came over to visit, they sat there and discussed his interests. Because of hospice, I was able to make his life so much better, we took a couple of trips, he was able to enjoy foods that kidney failure didn't allow him to eat. He passed with no pain and there was such a peacefulness on his face.

After all of these years I still truly appreciate all of the assistance, care, and compassion that Butte Hospice has shown

I would like to thank Butte Home Health and Hospice for the wonderful care they gave my Mother in her time of need.
When my mother could no longer live my herself, she moved in with me. Butte Home Health provided Nursing to help with her medications , Physical Therapy for her mobility and Medical Social services that provided answers for the many questions we had.
When my mother was given a six month diagnosis due to her cancer, Butte Hospice was there to cover her hospice medications, provide a hospital bed and other equipment needed for her care. They sent Home Health Aides to help with bathing. and personal needs. Most of all they provided the emotional support needed to care for my mother. I thank you from the bottom of my heart

To say Butte Home Health went above and beyond is an understatement! My father had always had very complicated medical history and needs. Towards the end of his life we reached out to Butte Home Health and my only regret was wishing we had used their services sooner! The administrative staff was not only personable and caring but so informative and helpful! Each nurse that help my Father was nurturing, loving, and professional. With such a hard working team they made the most difficult time in our families life smoother and I can’t say enough about the dedication and love that Butte Home showed to my family!

Butte Home Health was amazing to work with during an extremely rough time while my dad fought terminal cancer. The nurses were wonderful, my dad was treated with dignity and respect. I have referred many families to use their services and will continue to do so!

I can not say enough about Butte Home Health & Hospice - all of you are angels. The last few months have been challenging to say the very least and without the support of everyone at Butte Home Health & Hospice, I have no idea how I would have made it through. The selfless, loving, care given to my father, the support, and advocacy for my dad's comfort - I am forever grateful. From the nurses to the Chaplain, and the Social Worker, I always felt heard, comforted, and cared for just as much as you all comforted and cared for my dad.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Words are not enough to express how much you all mean to me.

I did not have services, but I did work with both administrative and field staff. They are some of the most dedicated nurses, therapists, social workers, chaplains, and administrative people I have met in my 40+ years of nursing.

We have had 3 family members on hospice with Butte Hospice over the last several years. Everyone that has been involved is kind, compassionate and really cared about my family members that were on hospice. They made a difficult situation much easier with all the care and information that was given to us of the family members. Every time that we needed someone or answers they were there for us. We couldn't have been happier with the care that was given.

Butte Home Health is a great organization for volunteers because it treatment of both patients and volunteers is so individualized. Every person involved is thought about individually, and services are always tailored to the mix of patient needs and volunteer skills. I've been involved in hospice caregiving for more than 2 decades, and BHH is what is wanted and needed for compassionate and helpful end of life support. And this is true for both the client, and for the volunteer.

I cannot thank Butte Home Health enough for the care and service they provided to both of my parents. Butte Home Health began providing in home care services for my mother several years ago when she fell victim to the ravages of Alzheimer's disease and my father was unable to care for her needs. We we blessed with their compassionate care through the progression of her disease and through her ultimate passing. During that same period my father's advanced age left him needing personal assistance for his daily needs, so we once again retained the care giving services of Butte Home Health. For several more years they demonstrated great compassion and flexibility in caring for my father's unique needs. When his health took a dramatic turn for the worse in early 2019 their hospice workers stepped up in providing tremendous comfort and guidance during the final weeks of his life. As the only one of my parent's children to live locally, I can not even begin to imagine how much more difficult the past several years would have been with the support of Butte Home Health.

We called Butte Home Health for my mother in law. The care she received was far better than I expected. The staff was amazing and very thorough. I highly recommend Butte Home Health if you are in the unfortunate need of someone to care for your loved one.

I did not expect to find myself so utterly impressed with the care during and the outreach after my mother's death. I am so grateful for the grief group facilitated by two wonderful employees and the total community approach of this hospice. Such an asset to Chico.
