Don’t Hesitate to Call
Deciding to contact a hospice service is never easy. But Judy Ryder, director
of Memorial Hospice and Hospice of Petaluma, hears over and over again
from families who say, "I wish I had called sooner" to access
hospice care and support.
"Just call us to ask questions and see how we can be of support,"
she says. "A call doesn’t mean you have to commit."
