Hospice Home

Experiences from Carroll Hospice

The simple gestures are the ones that Chris Krebs still remembers. The back rubs and gentle words from Carroll Hospice's staff as they positioned her mother each hour. The Big Band CDs at Dove House that she was able to play for her father. The respite care that allowed her to recharge and sleep in her own bed.

For Bob and Chris Krebs, of Westminster, Carroll Hospice's care helped to ease the pain of losing a number of loved ones over a short period of time.

"I don't have the words to describe how compassionate and caring virtual strangers to us were to my dad, and when my mom came [to visit him], how they were so there for her," Chris says of the staff. "And I think that was the big 'a-ha' for me. Hospice is not only for the patient, but they're here for the family. And that's been our experience the many times we've had a loved one here at Dove House."
