Personal Testimonials

"Thank you for sharing our journey. You are people who strive to find even the smallest ways to make our lives easier, minute to minute. We will never forget the kindness and humanity you've shown us."

"I would like to express my thanks and gratitude for your care and kindness. I have never experienced Hospice before and didn’t know what to expect when I got there. A feeling of home is the best I can do to describe what it was like walking in the front doors. I loved the ski chalet look of the facility. The family room with the overstuffed chairs, fireplace and paintings give it a feeling of warmth and peace. During my week of visiting my loved one, I spoke with Mom of the staff members. I found them to be delightful and engaging and Chef Erik's meals were fantastic. I could not imagine a more dignified place for my loved one to pass - the fact that this place is so 'un-hospital-like'. I truly hope that this Hospice carries on for many, many years and expands and grows to give comfort and care those in need."

"I remain utterly grateful for the remarkable, poetic and sanctified way my wife departed this beautiful world and I consider her passing as the greatest moment of my life. Her end which has no end was made possible by ARCH and I have come to regard our time there as the culmination of a long and enduring marriage. ARCH is a treasure to this community, deserving of our broadest and deepest support. Thank you."

"I started as a volunteer at ARCH in the fall of 2008 and I have valued every moment of it. I sit in the front row, viewing a perfect example of how residents and their families should be, and are, treated. ARCH's high standards are an example to any health care organization."
