To the editor:
In general, Hospice has always meant professional care — highly regarded by all who hear about it, but most are not aware of the depth of the meaning. When Hospice comes into your life and home to care for your loved one, it gets personal real fast.
When we chose Hospice of Chesterfield County to care for my husband, Herb Foster, I had no idea how much their team would soon become like part of our family. The team assigned to us worked together like a well-oiled machine — thinking alike, knowing who, where and when to be here.
They started our days with a smile and a hug. Jeffrey and I looked forward to their visits each day.
Even Butch the Lab finally decided to like the chaplain. I was impressed with the level of knowledge and dedication of their professionals. The doctors, nurses, CNAs, therapists, social workers, chaplain and volunteers all worked together, and worked with me.
They remain dear friends, and they are welcome in our home anytime. It has been almost a year since the service of Hospice of Chesterfield County ended for us. They are still there for me and encourage me to reach out to them if there is a need.
I would encourage any family facing the decision of choosing care for a loved one to seriously consider Hospice of Chesterfield County. They build their team to fit your needs.
