Dear Skirball Hospice,
I don’t know how we could have possibly managed without you. At a time when we were completely overwhelmed and out of answers, you people literally saved our sanity. We almost waited too long, but it all worked out thanks to your expertise — so very kind but professional at the same time. My dad was able to pass with dignity at home with his family by his side exactly like he wanted. What a wonderful gift you gave us. Thank you, Skirball Hospice and bless you all!

Skirball Hospice was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and wonderful in every way possible. They provided everything, both tangible and spiritual. The nurses were skillful and friendly. The social workers were great, gave us the support we needed. The rabbis were personable and right on target. Even the delivery of the hospital bed and oxygen were on time, organized and helpful. Thank you again for a wonderful service during this most stressful time.

You are one of the finest organizations. You helped us at a time when chaos was everywhere. The care, concern, and communication skills were outstanding. I was amazed at the very high level of compassion everyone demonstrated towards my father and my family. Honestly, there were times that felt to me that the professionals from Skirball Hospice were from heaven, so great were their humanity and skills. From the very top of the tree (the admitting nurse) to the woman who cleaned and positioned my father daily, I can only say thank you a thousand times. You have all made a profound difference in our lives for the better, and made the passing of my father a peaceful journey. God bless you all.

I thought Skirball Hospice was amazing. I cannot say enough good things about the people involved in your organization. I only wish that your level of care and compassion could be more widely available throughout the healthcare community. The reason I put my mother on hospice was because I felt that the lack of insight and understanding was so prevalent in the hospitals we were sent to. Thank you and bless you all. You are wonderful people and my mother died a calm, painless, and peaceful death. With my best wishes.
