At Hospice of Orleans, it’s our privilege to care for you and your family.
Hear what our patients have to say about their experience with us:
"I have been a CNA/HHA for approximately 26 years and have been a part of the Hospice team, now Hospice of Orleans, for about 9 years now. I have worked the overnight shift at the Martin-Linsen Residence for that time.
Before working with Hospice, I knew Mr. Martin. He had his wife in the care of hospice at home before the residence building was built. He was so pleased with Hospice and the care his wife received as well as the support he had received. He felt it was such a wonderful organization and that he wanted to be a part of helping them do more. He was allowed to be a part of the building team of the Residence and expressed to me how nice it was to know and see the results of where his donated money was going to, instead of just leaving it in a will and not really knowing the results of it. He encouraged me to work for Hospice. There is plaque in the entry way of the Residence about the name sakes of the Residence, Mr. Martin and his wife and he was able to see the building completed before he passed away.
We all at Hospice (Supportive Care) take pride in providing quality care and providing a safe environment for those we care for. Care is provided for our residents when it is needed. Our residents, their families, and our fellow employees are treated with honesty, integrity, compassion, kindness, and respect. We do not discriminate against anyone's age, religion, race, disability, culture, social status, or sexual preference. We strive to maintain good ethics and follow the Golden Rule, that is to 'treat people like you want to be treated,' but we also strive to follow the Platinum Rule. Which is to treat people like they want to be treated.
I am told by some when I tell them I work for Hospice that it must be hard work, they don't know how I could do that job, and that it takes a special person to do that kind of work. Well, it isn't a job for just anyone. We are all special people. It is my pleasure to care for those we serve. To do everything I can to support and assist them and their families in this final journey in this life. Just as Mr. Martin felt, I feel the same. Hospice is a wonderful organization."
"My family and I were truly blessed by the loving care, compassion and dedication of our Hospice team during this most painful and difficult time. Because of them I never felt alone. I will forever be immeasurably grateful for all of the Hospice Angels who helped us in our greatest time of need and they will always be in my heart and my prayers. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!! And THANK YOU!!"
"You brought us through a rough and special time in our life. Thank you for being there, we could not have done it without you all."
"Without Hospice of Orleans and my daughter, I could never have done it. You are like Guardian Angels, each and every one of you."
