'God's angels' provided fine care for beloved family member

Aug 8, 2012 - Mary Joe Quayle and the Quayle family, Riverton


End of life care is a vital concern for families who have a beloved member in need of it. When it is no longer possible to care for the person at home, we seek a way to care for him -- which usually means a facility.

Our family recently was in such need, when we were fortunate enough to find a vacancy at the Help for Health Hospice Home.

How blessed we were from the moment we moved Don into the hospice facility. At the time, little did we know that we had placed him in the hands of "God's angels."

Not only were the nurses and aides very knowledgeable and capable about how to care for him, but they did so with immeasurable kindness, love and gentleness.

We were in awe of their capabilities, as well as their concern for his, and our, well being. We never left the facility without the comfort of knowing that he was receiving better care than we could provide for him at home.

Thos the hospice staff, the peace of knowing that Don was in you care, "God's angels," is the greatest gift that our family has ever received. We will be eternally grateful to you. Our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you.
