Hospice Care at the Crossroads of Compassion and Expertise

For family members and caregivers, the decision to transition a loved one into hospice care carries a heavy emotional toll.
If you are feeling fear and uncertainty as you search for a trusted hospice care provider, you are not alone. Before connecting with our compassionate Knute Nelson family, most children, spouses, and decision-makers face these trying emotions.
While every hospice care experience requires a unique, tailored approach, we wanted to share the experiences of Connie Spanswick. She is a member of our spiritual care family who joined us shortly after her father Bob transitioned through hospice care at Knute Nelson. By shining light on the full breadth of what Knute Nelson hospice has to offer, Connie’s story brings clarity during these challenging and often confusing times.
“I think honestly every one of us knows the inevitable. What's going to happen in life… It is scary because you know that it’s coming closer, but to be honest, that is such an amazing gift.”
