Thank you for supporting our mother’s 100th birthday party “at her home”. Everything went smoothly all afternoon – which was made possible by Jodi. I cannot say enough positives about her for this day – but also for her weekly program.

Thank you so very much for everything you did to care for XXXXX. Thank you also for the compassion you showed to me and my family during our final days with him. I don't know how I would have gotten through it without you all. XXXXX gave you some interesting days and you handled it with professionalism and compassion. I always felt respected. So many staff are now friends. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!

 The residents speak so well of their staff. As a volunteer, I see candid interactions between the residents and their staff, witness the respect and care, the exchanged smiles, meaningful touches and conversation. Beautiful seasonal decor inside and outside.

I love how all you Hospice caregivers are so involved with your patients and families. Caring for our loved ones, keeping us updated and explaining what is going on. I feel so much better for Dad that you are there for him. Supporting him, answering his questions, giving him someone to talk to that is knowledgeable about what is going on with Mom.
