NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
I was very pleased with the care that was recently given to my mother-in-law by Jameson Hospice.
She had been diagnosed with cancer late last year and passed away April 4.
Her doctor’s office originally had arranged hospice care by another hospice servicing this area. The family was not happy with the care she received and my husband and I suggested Jameson Hospice.
Jameson Hospice came and evaluated her immediately and corrected problems that had not been handled by the previous hospice. The hospice nurses were very kind, conscientious and professional. My mother-in-law formed a bond with the primary care nurse and looked forward to her visits.
As her condition worsened, the hospice workers came every day to make sure that she was comfortable and in no pain.
My sister-in-law lived with her mother and did a really good job in caring for her, but she needed the hospice help for the care and direction she wasn’t trained to provide. My sister-in-law even gave baked goods to the hospice workers in appreciation of their support.
One thing we have learned is that hospice care should be started early in the process to make a person’s final days more comfortable. All hospices are not equal and do not provide the same care.
I do know that Jameson Hospice is based in Lawrence County and provides on-call RN care 24/7 in this area. Also many of the Jameson Hospice workers are from this area and know many of the families that they care for.
I would definitely recommend Jameson Hospice. People can contact Jameson Hospice directly. The hospice workers then can contact the doctor to formulate a specific plan of care.
I am sure others will be as pleased as we were.
