"They were good with providing the hospital bed, oxygen, etc. The nurse's
usually came as scheduled. I actually disliked her "happy approach"" as she was TOO LOUD. The experience was not
or calming ever. We never seemed to get the same RN. The RN would come once a week or so. Often heard comments that they were understaffed and that was why we had a different RN or why certain things were done or not done. Her assigned RN probably only saw her about half the time. Then she quit the company &
assigned a new RN who saw her I believe one time as she was scheduled to take vacation with her family for a few weeks (this was when my mom was the last days off her life). I called them on Sunday and RN came who put her on "constant care" starting Monday. On Sunday they stated her on the "comfort pack" that had the liquid morphine & other med to dry up her lungs. Then the nurse proceeded to tell me that her pain pills were to be inserted in her rectum and did not bother to do it the first time or show me how to do it. On Monday they sent CNA who could give the meds. On Tuesday they sent aides who going not give meds -- thankfully I had a friend who could go help with the meds while I was at work. She passed on Tuesday about 6:22PM and Hospice did not call me - my friend called me to tell me the end was near. I was NOT HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE AND WOULD NEVER USE THIS COMPANY AGAIN. I've just included the "high points" and not all the minor details that were disturbing. My BIGGIST mistake was not being forceful enough (in a nice way) or NOT changing companies.

"We were very happy with them. The nurse was a very friendly individual. The infusion took several hours, so we chatted with him and got to know him pretty well. He was a very nice man." The insurance company handled financial end of it. We went through a battle with insurance company to get the service.

Home Health provided end of life care for my mother-in-law. They were extremely supportive and compassionate. The staff was wonderful about explaining the process to my wife and father-in-law. The nurses did an excellent job of keeping her comfortable. They even offered volunteers to come out to the house and sit with her if my father-in-law had to run out for appointments or errands. I would highly recommend this service if you are considering hospice for your loved one.

Overall I was pleased by the service. The service providers were very nice & treated my mother very well. They would call me frequently with updates & observations as I had requested. My only complaint came at the end of our journey when we needed them most. It became apparent that the end was very near and my mother was in pain. The nurses at the health care center called and asked for a hospice nurse to be sent. She would be the one that could order the pain meds for my mother. There were weather complications and the nurse took about three hours to arrive. She phoned in the order for the meds to be delivered and left saying they would be delivered "STAT". The pharmacy was 45 miles away and the delivery took another 3 hours! All this time my mother was in agonizing pain! In summary, my complaint with the company is not with the personnel but I feel that they overextended themselves. I found out too late that all the health care providers that work for this company live in the Oklahoma City Metro area while we were needing service in Noble. The distance was not a problem on a day to day operation, but it WAS a problem when we needed services right away. I think overall that this is a good company delivering wonderful service to those employing them in the Metro Area. I DO NOT recommend them outside the Metro!

I would highly rate them in every category. The nurse who was in charge of my husband’s care was extremely knowledgeable, very caring, and gentle. She explained our options to us very carefully and was very supportive.

We were, and are, so grateful for
Houston Home Hospice Provider Name Locked
and the fact that we started with them relatively early in my husbands illness. It was a huge blessing to have them come at least once a week at the beginning and then more frequently as my husband's health continued to deteriorate over a period of about 9 months. The staff were comforting and helped us through the most difficult time in our lives. Three of the staff stayed with our family the day my husband died. I would encourage anyone dealing with a terminal illness to bring hospice in earlier than later and I highly recommend

, specifically. I am grateful they were there for us.

The hospice was very effective. We can either go the 4-hospice route or the palliative and with palliative we can still receive Medicare services. They only come out once a month. They would come out more if needed which in our case they only came once a month. The case load was extremely heavy so she set the appointment and she did show up on time.

Its a wonderful place, the care they give, spirituality because even people that are not spiritual, when they get that close they get that way. I haven't met anyone who didn't, they will call out "oh God in a min when they need it. They don't walk in with a look on their face that says "oh God, she looks horrible today". We used them because she wanted to come home and be with us and her grandsons. they keep a sign up for volunteers and thats good for families in the grieving process. You don't find any better then those nurses. They will tell you anything you wanted to know and we didn't have to deal with any billing.

They really care and they are consistent. They work hard to assure that he has everything he needs and that he is not in any pain. They work hard to help me to understand. The chaplain and social worker stay very involved and make sure that I am okay too. They will come out in the middle of the night if we need them. The office staff has treated me wonderfully over the phone. If they need to stay with another client, they will call. If there is an emergency, they are here. The staff is very friendly; they are great. They have kept my husband out of pain and they have been able to help me. My husband has a very rare disease that is hard for people to understand. They have worked very well with him and kept him from acting out too much. The billing goes to the insurance. We will use them as long as my husband is alive.
