    Hosparus Hospice of Louisville
    I don't know what we would have done without Hosparus. My mother is in her 80's and she was trying to take care of her 90 year old husband and they helped her with him and then he went into inpatient the last few days of his life. They also helped her with the housework besides taking care of him. I was the primary caretaker for my younger brother who passed away and they arranged for the hospital bed to be brought inside the home. The day we brought him home they came out and checked him out and then they left. I realized that I didn't know how to turn him or anything else because he was paralyzed from the chest down and so the CNA came back out the same day and showed me how to do it. Me and my mother weren't billed at all. They are a nonprofit and I volunteered for them when I retired because of how much they impressed me.

    I had heard of Dr. Courtney Bennett from a friend who had called on her when their dog was sick and needed to be put down.  Knowing this friend had been very pleased with the way Dr. B. handled everything, I referred her to my daughter when they had the same need for their old dog.  Again, everything was handled perfectly. I knew one day I would be contacting Dr. B. due to the age of our dog and decide to reach out via email and tell her who we were and about our dog, Max.  She was prompt in replying and said she was there if we ever needed her and to contact her if we felt she needed to come assess his needs. A few weeks later, she came to our home ~ pockets full of dog treats ~ and during a two hour visit was able to diagnose his condition, gave us tips on things to watch for and did a full physical on him.  This visit was not only for him, but for us in learning to deal with the present and prepare for the future. Just a few weeks later and after Max's health seemed on a rapid decline, we decided to schedule a time for her to come.  While it might sound callus to 'schedule' having a dog put down, we did this in order to have some control over the situation and we are very happy we chose this means.  For us to wait until he was worse put him and us at risk that he might suddenly be in pain, be unable to walk at all, who knows.  It also allowed us to clear our day of work, appointments, etc. and be fully present for him instead of risking that he might have a health crisis when we were gone or during the night. When May 5th came, we got up early, fixed breakfast and Max got bacon and eggs ~ something he usually couldn't tolerate due to food allergies.  He loved it !  When Dr. Bennett arrived with her aid, Max was overjoyed to see this person who carries pockets full of treats and wouldn't leave her side.  When we decided it was time, we spread a blanket out under the trees and while he was busy stealing bites of cheese from me, she gently injected him with a sedative. He didn't feel a thing. Within 3-4 minutes, he went from 'all about the cheese' to 'I think I'll curl up here and take a nap."  There was no staggering, drugged look about him. He just looked like a very content dog with a belly full of food and loving pats all around.  He was soon sound asleep and snoring loudly.  Again, this eased the transition as he did not look drugged ~ just peacefully napping. Dr. Bennett told us every step of the way what she was doing or about to do and always asked for our permission before moving on.  At this point she asked if we were ok with her administering the final injection.  Seeing how peaceful he was and knowing that we had made the right decision for him, she took that last step and then listened to his heart.  Within a couple of minutes she said he was gone.  All I could think of was how peaceful it was and how he had drifted off to his next life while lying in his favorite spot in the yard on a blanket in the morning sun with his family around him.  I could only wonder why we're not able to offer this to our human loved ones, because this would certainly be my choice as to how to leave this earth. We were given as much time as we wanted to say goodbye.  We wrapped him up in a sheet along with his favorite bone and stuffed bear.  Dr. B and her aid carried him to her car on a small stretcher where he was then taken to Faithful Companions Pet Cremation in Jeffersonville, IN.  As we had requested, a few days later we received his ashes back.  They arrived in a beautifully carved wooden box with a certificate, a stamp of his paw print, a clipping of his fur and a nice card from Dr. B. The final charge for Dr. Bennett to come to the house that day, the cremation and return of ashes was $400.  All in all, I can't think of a single way in which this could have been improved upon.  Dr. Bennett is kind, compassionate and delivers a much needed service in the pet community through geriatric, palliative and hospice care.

    I can't say enough good things about Dr. Bennett. She made a difficult situation to face as peaceful as possible. I'd definitely use her hospice and euthanasia services again for our future pets in need.

    VNA Nazareth Home Care
    It was a kind of a comprehensive program, where they went into the homes of people who were too sick to get out of their homes and they provided these services, and it was all covered by Medicare. The is a limit on how many times a week they can come, if I want full time home care service, then I have to go to an organization, and pay for it. They are an excellent organization, they have wonderful, dedicated people, and I was very satisfied with them. I would tell a friend or family member to definitely use them, they were terrific.

    Dr. Bennett made a difficult situation for us - putting down our young dog whom we loved dearly - a bit easier through her comforting words and methods. She realizes that it is an extremely tough time for you and takes every effort to help you deal with the grief and gravity of the situation you are going through. Every detail was thought of and addressed before she made the visit and she even came back to deliver his ashes, grief literature and a complementary clay paw imprint. If you have a suffering dog I would highly recommend you speak to Dr. Bennett as she realizes for a lot of us animals are part of the family and deserve to get treated with the same respect.

    They were kind, considerate and treated her as they would their own Mother. We could not have been more pleased with their service and time spent with her. WE were truly blessed by Hosparus of Louisville.

    Dr Bennett was extremely compassionate and provided an excellent experience to an emotional and difficult situation. Having our dog pass away in our home peacefully meant the world to us. Cannot thank Dr Bennett enough.

    Norton Home Health
    They offer their services to the families of those who are dying, and they are an excellent, excellent organization. They are convenient, friendly, and prompt. I felt totally confident in the information they gave me, some people feel that if they go to a doctor’s office, they will get better information and advice, but these people were very professional and knew what they were talking about. There were doctors involved, but they just didn’t make every visit, because that would not be cost effective. I definitely would be using them again in the future.
