My husband died on Jan. 28 under the care of MaineGeneral Hospice. I need to take a moment to let everyone know that this is truly a wonderful program. Austin was allowed to stay in his own home for his final time here on earth. He had one foot in heaven and the other here with me as he transitioned to his forever home.

The experience for me was amazing. As usual he tried to make it as easy for me as possible and we shared a beautiful time together. This was all thanks to Hospice and the wonderful doctors and nurses that use care and comfort for their patients. They adjust quickly to the personality of each patient and work with them to make a sincere and caring atmosphere for all. The patient and caregiver come first in all things and our wishes were fulfilled. Dr. Schneid (affectionately known as Dr. Jim) and his wonderful team are angels on earth. The social workers (Deb Golden) and chaplaincy were ever helpful to us. Chaplain Bill Meyers is one in a million. He connected with Austin and made his final days much more spiritually peaceful.

These fantastic people are dependent on donations to help keep this program running efficiently for all the terminally ill folks in our state. If you need a worthy cause to donate to, this doesn’t get much more worthy. Please donate to Hospice today.
