I do not know where to begin! The nurses and staff with Wentworth Hospice were absolutely wonderful. They were professional, kind, warm and made my father who was terminally ill so thankfull of the services he could receive in his own home. It relieved me of many fears as his care-taker as I knew I could call them 24/7 with any questions. I only wish my father was on hospice for a longer period of time. It was a wonderful experience, and the Wentworth staff went beyond my preivous expectations.
