"Hospice is more than just pain meds, hospital beds and oxygen.  Hospice is about people - the patient, family and friends.  It is caring and comfort.  It is tears and sadness.  But it is also laughter and talk of times past.  It is giving individual care to each family - giving each family what they need in their unique situations." -  Ann Gullberg, RN
