“As a nurse, all too often I have been the one holding the hand of a patient taking a final breath. Nobody should have to die unprepared and alone; it drives me daily in the pursuit of dignity, comfort, and excellence in care for every patient.”

— Blake, Hospice Nurse, Cardinal Hospice Care

“The team at Cardinal Care Hospice was so thoughtful, considerate, willing to help, and just be there for me during the loss of my beautiful mother. They took the time to meet with me and answer all of my questions, even when I called late in the evening. Even though it wasn’t in God’s plan for us to have more time to get to know one another, I can never thank them enough for all they did!”
