From our families

Hospice of Marion County West Team took care of both my parents-in-law here at home. We had such a wonderful experience being shown love, compassion and respect! I know Mom and Dad felt it!

Everyone involved were so nice and polite, always keeping our needs at the forefront. I know I could not have done this without their help. They are all very special Angels!

Thank you so much.
The family of Richard and Donna Wilson

Jane TurnerMy husband was at Legacy House of Ocala FL and he was a veteran. They were so good to him and the whole family including our 18 grandchildren and our great granddaughter. The ages of these kids ranged from 26 to 4 years and all were made to feel welcome. They even had a pinning ceremony for him because he was a vet. It will be a year on October 31 and I can never thank them enough for all they did for us. My husband died with the dignity he deserved! God bless these angels!

Tommy PockesckiI just wanted to take this time to thank the people of hospice for taking care of my stepdad, Ed Matthews, in his final days. He passed away on Aug. 31. The work you people do is truly angelic and I’m glad he was made comfortable in his last days.

Barbara Riley O'NeillMy Mother recently passed away at Estelle’s House earlier this month. The Staff was amazing to her and all of our Family. These special people treated my Mom as if she were a personal friend, and made the process of dying dignified and respectful. I highly recommend Hospice of Marion County!

Martha Mittendorff Hunt JoslinHospice of Marion County (west team) were beyond amazing. Their help and support in taking care of my husband was excellent. I cannot thank them enough for all that they did not only in helping my husband remain comfortable in his last days, but the comfort and support that they extended to me and our entire family was exceptional.

Christina ParryMy parents, Chuck and Ursula Farro, wanted to reach out to the west team of Hospice of Marion County, Florida: Angelia, Tami, Petreice and Lisa. They did such an amazing job for my grandfather, Erich Tienes. The compassion and respect they showed was priceless. That’s why we say the west team is the best team. God bless you all !!

From our employees and volunteers:

Being an employee of Hospice of Marion County, I see what goes on on the “inside.” There is so much compassion and caring put into everything that is done for each of our patients and their loved ones.

We strive for excellence in providing the very best care and then try to make it even better!

Working in the Volunteer Department for Hospice of Marion County is great! We have a group of retired and still-working volunteers that lend their services to Hospice of Marion County in so many ways. From the Thrift Store to visiting with patients in any setting, our volunteers help us to provide the care that is needed.

I wouldn’t want to work any other place. The volunteers inspire me too!
