Stories & Tributes

My husband, Steve, battled pancreatic cancer for almost two years, bravely and confidently, until the cancer took control. When he arrived at Quiet Oaks one Thursday night in June, he had taken a turn for the worse. From the time we arrived at Quiet Oaks, until his passing 5 days later, he was treated with care and respect. My children and I spent the days and nights there, to be with him, and we too were treated very well. Thank you so much for the amazing care he received during his last days, and for all the kindness shown to our family by the entire staff at Quiet Oaks.

Sincerely,

Heidi Stiegel

Services

Our hospice method focuses on relief rather than a cure.

 

Quiet Oaks provides comprehensive pain and symptom management. Our hospice treatment goals focus on comfort and dignity rather than a cure. Sometimes pain and other complex symptoms are very difficult to manage at home. Our medical director, nurses and home health aids provide relief of pain, anxiety, stress, and other debilitating symptoms of serious illness.
