I cannot say enough good things about SereniCare and Francis. They came highly recommended from many hospice nurses that I know and I am so glad I made the decision to go with them.

Francis made it clear that I was his priority and that he was happy to do whatever services and I wanted and did not ever try to push an additional service. He knows what he is doing and makes you feel comfortable.

In this hard time having the support of the funeral home and director was exactly what I needed and I plan on using them when the need ever arises again. Thank you!

Kent Smith, owner of Sernicare is an amazing person to work with during such a difficult time as preparing for and the death of a loved one. I lost my precious Mother Carma J. Jensen on 6/24/2018... Kent's calm, patient and kind presence was a blessing to me. He went out of his way to help me and offer assistance, I am extremely grateful for all that he did and for the professional manner in which everything was handled. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!
