Review for Compassionate Care Hospice Foundation, Newark, DE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a Clinical Social Worker with Compassionate Care Hospice. I have the privilege of working in the Lakeland, FL office currently and previously worked in the Parsippany, NJ office. Not often when you give to a charity do you know exactly where it goes, one hopes it is given to whom it is promised. This is not the case with the Compassionate Care Hospice Foundation: I see with my own eyes where the money is going and hear the joy and gratitude in the voices of patients and their families. Just in the last month they have paid the rent for 3 of my struggling families. Summer is a very tough time in Florida with high electric bills, in the last 2 months 6 of my patients have had their electric bill paid when it was about to be turned off. The foundation has provided just in the last month 3 Walmart gift cards for food and 1 for school clothes for my families. When I worked in NJ a memorable moment was when a 29 year old AIDS patient had to move into his mothers home. The only room the hospital bed would fit in was not properly wired since the house was very old. The Foundation quickly wired the room so that this young patient could spend his last moments in his comfortable hospital bed. As the LCSW working with my families I get the hugs, tears thanks and blessing from the families for taking some of the financial pressure off during difficult times. Truly I am merely the messenger getting to work with a fabulous organization where I see weekly where our contributions go. Tonya Flores LCSW
