Dear Care Center Team,
Countless others have stood where we stand – we struggled to find sufficient words of thanks. During one of the more heart wrenching trials a family can experience, your caring staff brought grace, serenity, and dignity to life’s final transition. All who enter your doors are enfolded by special caring love. Our family is infinitely grateful to each and every staff member at your truly amazing care center for their part in making the final days of our mother more serene and virtually pain free.
Most gratefully and sincerely,
Tracy C. & Family, A family you may never meet but whose gratitude for your gift is beyond measure
The sad thing about living a long life is loved ones and friends pass on without you….I had shut myself off from everyone except family.
Now, after attending HopeWest counseling, reading and listening to others speak about their loved ones who have died, I am better prepared on this road of grief.
Warmly, Rosemary E.
A grieving widow, grateful for your generosity
You are not just Mom’s HopeWest nurse, you are our friend. Your visits were not just about getting her vitals, you truly cared about her and her welfare. I loved how you always suggested ways for Mom to get more calories, and even went as far as making cookies for her with lots of
protein. You knew if she was down, you knew if she was happy, you knew if she was having a hard time resting and you always were on top of it. I thank God we were lucky enough to have
you as our angel for 4 years.
Love, Sandy S., A daughter grateful for precious moments with her mother, made possible only with your help
I just can’t find the words to properly express my heartfelt gratitude for your care of my mother. Without your help and obvious concern for not only her, but myself, I couldn’t have taken her home. The last few months of her life were precious to me. The quality of care you offered our family is priceless. Our nurses, nursing assistants and social workers all made my bad days better. No one knows what to expect with the passing of a loved one. My goal was to have mom pass at home, surrounded by her family. That day came and with your help and guidance, it was such a good experience, one that I will cherish forever!
Sincerely, Ben C., A son filled with priceless memories because of your gifts
I have always been the kind of person who thought bad things would never happen to me. That all changed when my husband died suddenly at the age of 38. I lost the person I planned to spend the rest of my life with and my two sons lost the dad they adored. I called my friend, a HopeWest social worker, and asked for guidance and support in how to talk with my boys. She came to my house and sat with me, cried with me and helped me find the words for what would be the worst moment I had ever known. Without your support, I do not know how I would have been able to tell them their dad had died or to cope with this journey facing my family.
Sincerely, Kim G., A mother of two sons who was embraced with your support
