We can not thank you enough for all you did for XXXXX and our family. You are amazing, caring and thoughtful in all you do.

I am writing this letter to express my gratitude and to recognize Mechanicsville Specialty Care in Mechanicsville, IA, one of your Care Initiative care centers. My mother has been a resident there for over 9-1/2 years. She has Alzheimer's and is currently on hospice care. 
The staff is not only professional and skilled, they are caring, patient and compassionate. They give their smiles freely and can calm and reassure my mother in her confusion and anxiety. When I have visited her through the window (since COVID) I have seen my mother look up at a staff member with the look of a child seeking guidance and direction and I am convinced they are her family. The staff has changed in those 9-1/2 years but I have come to know many of them very well and they are part of my family too. 
Everyone ... are to be highly commended for their dedication in the past and heroic efforts during the COVID 19 Pandemic! I also recognize and praise the entire Care Initiative Hospice team. How reassuring it is that I can trust they are caring for and protecting my mother in such a loving way. Isn't that what anyone would want for their loved one?

I am writing to say thank you very much for having a big heart for the needy and more so considering Uganda to be one of the beneficiaries. I acknowledge receipt of the items you sent through Roberta S. and I have delivered them to Hospice Africa Uganda (HAU).

We want to extend our appreciation for the care and love that was shown to our father. We thank you for your kindness and support given to our family. All staff were good to us. Pam was especially helpful and Sue, the chaplain, touched our hearts and gave us God's peace and presence. Thank you again .

We can never thank (Sioux City Hospice volunteer Brian) enough for all the TLC you gave Betsy at the nursing home. If anyone has wings on this Earth, it’s definitely you. And now you have a special angel in Heaven watching over you, and that angel is Betsy!

We want to thank you for all your thoughtfulness and kindess in making our wish come true. Francis is a horseman through and through and so enjoyed his time with Misty. It also eased his mind to see how well she is doing. Thank you for giving us a day of special memories. (Albia)

These people are wonderful. They moved quick when we needed them and made the last few days of my fathers life as peaceful as they could. Thank you.

I would like to comment on the excellent care we received from (Care Initiatives Hospice - Greenfield) Melissa, Becky and Lori. Becky listened to people and took her time and did not rush even though she had many miles to go before calling it a day. I have nothing but praise for the people who do this work. Keep up the good work and God's blessings upon you.
