Every day, our centers and hospice and home care agencies receive thanks for the care they have provided to loved ones. Many say they don't have the words to describe their appreciation and simply say "Thanks." Below is a letter from the daughter of a resident at Arden Courts of Seminole, Florida in appreciation of the care provided to her father.
Even if I feel like I am always running between tasks, I haven't a good excuse for not writing our family's thanks for the care Dad is receiving.
I particularly wanted to thank the nursing staff for the way they obtained and implemented insulin treatment for Dad. Sheika, Marge and the other nurses have been so good in helping Dad accept the new treatment. Whatever happens, he definitely has enjoyed a few months reprieve and enjoyed life again.
I wanted to thank the continued care and encouragement of Christie, Melissa, Tasha and many others who daily contribute to dad's feeling of being at home. Heather, Tammie and Cheryl have helped Dad feel a member of a group and given his days structure and meaning. He truly seemed to enjoy the outing to the VA Museum.
We've also taken great advantage of the cushioned divans out back under the awning. Many happy moments were possible because of having a comfortable place to sit by one another.
I also appreciate personally the daily support I feel in being greeted by Bev and Cathy and others as I arrive. This has lifted me many times when I felt exhausted.
We thank all the “hidden" staff who keep the rooms clean, cook the food and trim the grass. My brother George joins me in thanking all those who made 20I2 a positive year for our Dad.
