About Alamo Hospice

"I don't want to be alone, I want my death to be happy, I don't want to be hurting." She was a younger adult, living with friends that cared about her, but couldn't provide for her care, her family lived at a distance, she was scared. Our promise: No one dies alone, afraid, or in pain. "We'll be there for you," we said as we looked her in the eyes and held her hands. And we were.
