"I first learned about the Kids Path program in December of 1997 when my second child, Tommy, was diagnosed with a very rare congenital heart defect shortly after his birth. In the weeks that followed, the Kids Path nurses provided medical care for Tommy while also emotionally supporting me and my family with hugs, prayers and encouragement. Just knowing how much they cared helped me to stay strong each day, and be better prepared to face whatever the outcome was going to be. Tommy lost his life shortly after his open heart surgery in February 1998. Although he only lived a little over two months, he forever changed our lives. I will always be thankful to Kids Path for being there for me and my family in our time of need."

"Mama had a servant’s heart and everyone knew about her love for the Lord, for my Dad and for her children. After a life of caring for all of us, we knew we wanted to take care of her at home until the very end. This would not have been possible without the help we received from Hospice of Randolph County. Our goal was for Mama to die with dignity and without pain, and she did! She was completely peaceful and surrounded by her family in the comfort of her own home. My advice to others is to TRUST Hospice of Randolph County. They are highly educated and they know just what to do to help families facing the end of life. They supported our family which allowed us to cherish every moment with Mama."

"I wouldn’t be here without the care that I’ve received at the Randolph Hospice House. When I first arrived, I had been given hours to days to live but that was months ago. This has changed my life and given me more time with my family! My hospice team takes excellent care of me, and they have become like family. On my good days or my bad days, they help me in any way they can. My advice to other people…don’t be like me. I was afraid to get help from Hospice. After receiving their care, I can honestly say that there is truly no better care in the world!"

In loving memory of Steve’s mother, Trudie Ruth Taylor
"Mom was my world. I can’t thank Hospice of Randolph County enough for the professional care they provided for her. They always answered her questions honestly and helped her feel at peace about the journey ahead. Our hospice team treated all of us like family, especially during our time at the Randolph Hospice House. There is no way to prepare for a loss this difficult, but having our hospice team beside us made it a little bit easier."
