Testimonials from Our Hospice Care Patients & Their Loved Ones

My husbands final days, was a blessing for us. We are eternally grateful to each one of you. May God bless all of you, and guide you everyday to keep helping so many suffering people in need.

From the bottom of my heart

Ana, Patients Wife

Expressed appreciation for hospice, and especially wanted to thank the person who gave her the heart pillow. She said her favorite color is orange, and the pillow she was given was orange, which made it extra special. Her husband said VNA’s help with was exceptional, the nurses were really good, and he appreciates all the care.

Granddaughter said she was very happy with our hospice service.


Sister said she was very impressed and grateful with how helpful Baylor palliative care and VNA hospice were. The whole thing was done well, and she was very pleased. “Thank you very much.”


“You guys were awesome.” Daughter-in-law said they received the heart pillow which she appreciates, and she’s very appreciative of the time patient was on hospice. “You walked us through a lot.”


VNA was wonderful and Stephanie and Erin were amazing and provided tremendous care. It was very helpful to have people who have experience walk her through this.


Paul Ramler was a real help to us; “he’s a wonderful man.”


I wanted to let you know about the support and care provided by your on-call RN Damita Ware. She was exceptional last night and was a great help to me. We had two patients to convert to inpatient hospice that had extremely complicated family dynamics. Damita was a trooper and stayed until almost midnight to assist hospital staff with the conversion process, along with supporting the families during an emotional time. Damita is an excellent representative of VNA and I am grateful for her assistance.

During our relationship with VNA, we were involved with Richard, Fatima, Amanda, Jasmine, Kevin, Nicole and Paula. To a person, they were all friendly, professional and caring. We felt like we were in the hands of real, caring people all along the way.

I have to say that our nurse, Amanda Pyles, was incredible! Completely knowledgeable and professional and at the same time, she had such a loving, helpful demeanor toward us and my wife’s Mom. She listened as we asked questions. She answered all of our questions completely and added information that she knew we would need but didn’t know to ask for!

Amanda explained to us what the dying process was like and what we could expect to see along the way. In every detail, she was right! Amazing!

Because Amanda taught us so well, our fears were minimized and we were able to better care for my wife’s Mom. She really educated us and I felt she was our partner in caring for my mother-in-law. We deeply appreciate it!

In my ignorance, I had been skeptical, even cynical about hospice care. Our experience with VNA has given me a great respect and admiration for people who work in hospice care. More than one of your employees who we dealt with described their work as a calling.

My wife’s Mom passed during Amanda’s last visit. Amanda was so gentle and loving in her speech and work, especially on that day. How could we ever hope for anyone better?

All this to say, “Thank you,” from the deepest places in our hearts. A special ‘Thank you’ to Erin for recommending VNA.

It’s my personal opinion that nurses are the most under-rated members of the medical profession. So I am taking this opportunity to boost all of you a little bit. This contribution is all that I can muster for this year, but I wanted you all to know that somebody values your work very much. Hope all of you survive the scourge that we are facing; God knows that you are in the front lines.

My best to all of you.

Very truly yours,

William, Family Member
