Employee Testimony


I would like to let everyone know that I am a proud employee of Agape Hospice, working in the Pee Dee area as a Bereavement Coordinator. I became a part of the Agape Family when Helping Hands Hospice was acquired by Agape Senior in 2007. Since that time I’ve had the opportunity to work in various positions but bereavement has always been my passion. I enjoy being able to minister to our bereaved families, as well as others in the community as they adjust to life without their loved one. While many people view their work as a job, I consider what I do to be a ministry, making a difference in the lives of people I meet on a daily basis. Being an employee of Agape Hospice also gives me the opportunity to grow professionally through Agape University. The classes I have taken so far have been a great help in many areas of my life.​

 One of the hardest things that I've had to adjust to while working at agape hospice is learning to not apologize for being great. Often I find myself in situations where I'm being told that again we were chosen over another hospice. Having friends that work for other hospices I know that the competition is tough and they need to feed their families as well as we do. But after you hire the right people, do the training, pray together as a team, and present a product that is untouchable locally, I have had to be careful not to apologize for winning. Too often in our society now we find ourselves apologizing when we win. Political correctness was never the most important aspect of a capitalist society. If people want to be on the winning team they need to improve their game and apply.

I wish to express sincere appreciation for the highly professional Hospice Care provided to my wife Elizabeth Dianne Jones. May 10 thru July 5, my dear wife of 71 years received excellent care provided by Cheryl, Dee, Jennifer, Don, Dave, and Fran. Our daughter Diana and I are grateful for the provision of personal care, supplies and the smiles and hugs provided to us. The greatest blessing of all is that my Dianne did not suffer. Her pain was managed quite well and on July 5th she with us by her side transitioned into the loving arms of our Lord Jesus at the 3:30 p.m. hour. Thank you for being there for us. God Bless You each and every one.
