Review for Mercy Care, Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
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.
