Having been in and out of hospitals during my lifetime I have always been disappointed with the personnel. Now that I am in hospice, they have turned my smile into sunshine.

I want to thank everyone involved in the care of my mother during her last days. Everyone was very caring and professional. I thank God for your services.

Wish I had known more about hospice services a lot earlier! Thought it was for ‘end stage’ of life only. It would have been a lot more comfortable and easier for my mother and myself, instead of having home-health.

I shall always remember the care and kindness your people gave to my husband, my son and me. I sincerely thank you for it.

Virginia S

I could not have made it taking care of my husband without Altus Hospice. I will always be so grateful to every one of them.

Agnes S

Thank you so very much, and if she could, she would say the same …

I am very thankful for the special care you gave my son. The nurses that cared for him were very attentive, day and night, taking care that he would not suffer so much from the pain of his complications and keeping him comfortable. God bless.

The loss of my mother was overwhelming at times. The Altus staff helped in a way that can only be described as a blessing. They explained to my other family members the processes of dying and answered questions for us all. Thank you.

Thank you very much for all the care that you’ve given to my family and especially to my father during his last days. God bless you all!

I would like to inform everyone how much they were appreciated working with my dad to make him comfortable. We thank you so much for being a huge support to my family and myself.
