From the Social workers, the Nursing team, Physician, and Aftercare team, they were all friendly caring... Read more & very kind team, They definitely made the process so much easier regardless of our financial limitations. They were always available 24/7 to assist us in every aspect of my mom needs.
We were truly bless to have them by our side during this difficult time.
I'm sure they will assist your family as well as they assisted mine.

All the nurses and aids were so kind and helpful, he/we loved everyone of them. To name a few, Tiffany, Suzanne, Dee, Jo (Social Worker), Henry and Janet just to name a few. All compassionate and caring. My dad looked... Read more forward to seeing them and talking with them. When I had to call in to ask questions or get assistance, everyone I spoke with on the phone was very helpful and compassionate. The aftercare is amazing as well. Kathy Mills from Aftercare dept who called to assist with his estate and/or financial was very professional, kind and helpful. Jessica from Bereavement dept was also very sweet and helpful. It's difficult these days to find genuinely caring people but Hospice covered that and I'm happy I didnt have one more thing to worry about when they were around. No covert, condescending fake people. I beleive if that was what we had to deal with, it would have made it so much harder on my dad and me. Thank you to every person from Hospice of the South Coast that touched my dads life and showed him compassion and true caring. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. Thank you a million times! Read less
