Reviews for Amity Hospice
Amy Morgan — STAY AWAY FROM AMITY HOSPICE!!! My father was referred to Amity by his oncologist Dr. Athar for terminal cancer. Athar had a good relationship with Amity and their marketing staff knew him well. Athar did NOT provide my parents with a list of hospice providers or tell them they had a right to choose their provider. Amity did NOT tell my father he had a right to choose his attending physician; only told him that Dr. Mirza Hasan was their physician. This is against the law. They failed to explain my father's patient's rights, or detail the different levels of care and services provided. Medications were delivered via courier w/no explanation for their use or disposal, and consisted mainly of morphine. My parents were told if he went to a doctor or the hospital at all, he would be removed from hospice. This too is against the law. He went to get a colonoscopy to see how far the cancer had spread and to see how much time he had left. He did NOT tell the nurses he was going to seek treatment. Amity coerced my dad into signing a revocation form citing "seeking aggressive treatment". Afterwards, they re-enrolled him. Nurses came a few times per month and checked basic vitals and talked. One nurse told my mom she regularly takes Tramadol (an opioid) and encouraged my mom to take some that was prescribed to my dad. A week before he passed, my dad had fallen twice and was bedridden. He was in extreme pain, wasn't eating or drinking, and had wounds that were seeping. Both nurses knew this and did NOT tell us about continuous care or inpatient care. They said not to go to the hospital because he'd be removed from hospice, and only ordered a medical bed, oxygen and an aide to come and clean him. We ultimately admitted him to the hospital for pain management, then to Vitas inpatient hospice. Vitas was a 180 of the "care" that Amity provided. My dad passed shortly after. Because of Amity's neglect, my dad's care fell to my elderly mother. She wore herself out to the point of developing severe pneumonia and a DVT that hospitalized her for a week after he passed. Amity was paid a per diem rate by Medicare for their services, but only provided the most basic level of service even though they claimed to provide a lot more. BEWARE!!!

Alicja Overose — I have worked with Amity for about four years now in the dementia care community I am the nursing director for and they are the best. They have very attentive and responsive staff who care very much about my residents.

Mandy Brown — Amity took wonderful care of my mother for the short period of time she had left. They were attentive and always spoke to my mother directly, even if she was unconscious. That made me happy. Once she passed, they were appropriately concerned for our family's well being and supported us after her passing.

Lisa Dagley — I love this company! They have been caring for my mom for about 2 years. The whole staff is available for our family anytime. Recommend them highly!

Brian Reynolds — i spent a lot of time talking and reading up on hospice care in Dallas for my mother (she passed away last Dec, 2014). Amity was one of the only hospice care giver to talk straight about what hospice care really is. Brett, the liaison with Amity, was great, giving us the info we need on hospice care (which most of us enter into ignorant of what it is and what it provides under medicare). the staff was tremendous and always there. there were questions from my family about the care at the end, the "critical care" period, i felt they did a good job under the circumstances. all our care for our mother was done in home, which is what all of us want to see in the end. i want to thank all of them for the good work.
