My mom was given the best care possible. We hadn't realized that given her heart condition, she didn't have much time. Had we understood that earlier, we would have opted for the comfort of hospice over all the life preserving treatments at the hospital...which were, of course, just a vicious cycle. The nurses talked to us, what to expect and showed a real compassion for keeping patients out of pain, seeing that the things the patient wants are given. I wouldn't hesitate to go to Embracing Hospice should I ever need it.
As someone stated earlier, it was like a horror movie the way in which Embracing Hospice operated. I got the impression that the staff just stood around waiting for the next one to die. No one was aware of anything going on in my husband's room, because the nurse disappeared just a few minutes after I arrived. I had to go hunt her down. I had many questions, but no one offered an opportunity to answer them, or to reassure me of what was happening.
