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."
