- "I have been so very honored & blessed to not only have been a volunteer for Hinds Hospice, but now an employee! I have never worked for such a dedicated group of people in my life. Their deep compassion, giving, & love for their work is so evident in all that they do. They always serve with a smile on their faces, a warm hug to all & never a complaint! It is a privilege to be called a co-worker of Hinds Hospice. Every employee plays a vital part in making it possible for any human being who comes into their scope of work to experience the fullness of a peaceful, dignified, & loving end of their life's journey."

- "Hinds Hospice has given me the gift of feeling valuable to my community and to the families we have the privilege of serving. I tell anyone who listens that I truly love my job and I have come to value that experience of professional fulfillment by giving back as the highest form of compensation."
~ Lauren, Fund Development Coordinator
- "One of my heroes, Dr. Daniel Tobin, wrote in his book, Peaceful Dying: 'Nowhere is the opportunity for teaching and incorporating wisdom and compassion into our communities greater than in our treatment of the dying.' These words serve as daily inspiration to me in my work with Hinds Hospice. We have the privilege of bringing to our patients and families, during their most vulnerable time, the best that humankind has to offer. We reach out and find them, often in heartbreaking circumstances, and make available to them new possibilities for quality of life and healing during our journey together. For the past 17 years of a 27 year nursing career, I can truly say, it doesn't get any better than this!"
~ Mary, Hospice Nurse Practitioner
- "As a bereavement counselor, I make “cold calls” to our hospice families, asking them how they’re doing after the death of a loved one. When the phone rings, the person at the other end might think: another caller wants my money or wants to sell me something I don’t need. They answer with suspicion. But when I say I’m from Hinds Hospice, everything changes. They are grateful for our work, they compliment the staff, and they know we continue to care for them and grieve with them. With Hinds Hospice, I never really make a “cold” call . . . I’m continuing a warm and heartfelt relationship."
~ Larry, Bereavement Support Specialist
