My brother has cancer and was assigned to Alive Hospice. The nurse missed visiting him for 6 days and says "it was due to the holiday". Well cancer doesn't take a holiday. The people at the 800 number are helpful but that's about it. They only take vitals, listen to the heart and lungs and order supplies. I would tell anyone thinking about using this service to please for everyone concerned just hire a nurse. If you are holding any hope of things improving this is not the way to go. They are very cold about death and do not seem to really want to help. This is my families experience and hopefully no one else has/well have these issues. Again, I beg that if you are being referred to them that you think long and hard about whether or not you want your loved one to keep getting medical attention. If you do this is not for you. They do not try to keep the person "functional" as they call it. You slowly watch your loved one die as they are only there 30 minutes to an hour.This is for people wanting a death watcher not a loving, compassionate caregiver.

Nurse is cold and uncaring. These people are just waiting for you to die. They make money off that death and do nothing but a quick check of you when they come and are gone in no time. No measures are taken except keeping you drugged to control pain. No medical aid given. Not helpful at all for the families. Please be careful when working with this company!!
