The first person I spoke with, Tiffany, was the best person to represent your company.
Burbank Hospice Care is such an amazing agency. They made my grandmothers last few weeks peaceful and pain free. Amy was wonderful in helping my mother cope with her loss. So thankful for their team!
My wife has been under the care of Burbank Hospice since last year, when she spent two months in the hospital battling two major vascular surgeries, pneumonia, septic shock, two weeks in the ICU, and the underlying illness driving all this…Multiple Sclerosis. Once she was stable, the hospital’s palliative care team recommended discharging her to hospice care. I spent a lot of time coordinating with the hospital hospice representative only to be told a day before discharge that their agency could not care for my wife since she had an open and infected surgical wound plus another open healing wound. None of the other major hospice companies would help us either. As you can imagine, this caused us a great deal of stress and anxiety. After making a few calls, the doctor found Burbank Hospice Care who stepped up and took on the challenge
This turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The Burbank Hospice team took on my wife’s case energetically, managed the difficult wounds with a “wound vac” and pic line, and monitored her lingering pneumonia and other infections. Slowly, over time, my wife rallied with this excellent care despite the fact that the doctors only gave her days to two weeks to live after she was sent home. Burbank Hospice staff provided all of the necessary equipment, supplies and prescriptions, which was monitored by regular visits from the agency’s nurses. Whenever I have a concern or a worry, the Burbank Hospice team responds quickly and with compassion.
Recently, my wife had another setback after a procedure and spent three weeks in the hospital. Again, Burbank Hospice was there after discharge to oversee her care and she is now resting comfortably.
My wife’s battle with this chronic illness has been an isolating experience with few visits from family and friends. The Burbank Hospice team is now like family to us. Their care, compassion and responsiveness have taken a lot of stress out of a very stressful situation. We are grateful for their support and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking hospice care for a loved one.
