“Mom was admitted to the hospital…The doctor reported that her health could not withstand the surgery needed. Then, he soon told us the words every family dreads to hear: “There is nothing more we can do…a decision needs to be made.” Those hours were a blur. The next morning mom was transported to the Elizabeth house. We walked in to find her room and were greeted by smiles, caring nurses and the chaplain on staff. The uncertainty soon was replaced by a feeling of peace, as we knew mom was in the right place!
Each day we visited and the late evenings we called. The nurses always were ready with an update. Watching them care for our mom was as if they were taking care of their own mother. They were very caring ad sensitive to the family’s need and concerns…The nurses, “her angels” cared for her as we prepared our hearts for the final goodbye.”
