“You are truly special people.”
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful care you all provided for my mother. She loved you very much!”
McLean Hospice care takes place wherever the need exists – usually this is in the person’s own home, but sometimes in a Skilled Nursing or Assisted Living community.
As a family-centered concept of care, McLean Hospice care focuses as much on the family as on the person receiving care. Hospice is able to provide the full benefit of services when we are involved earlier. It is not just for the last few days or weeks of life. Hospice is ready to help provide comfort and an improved quality of life.
