Thanks Very Much
We thank God for Mom’s wonderful caregivers at Encore Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center along with Heart of Hospice.
Encore Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center hospitality was excellent. Their nurses and care givers were so caring and everyone was so friendly. The facility was always so clean.
Heart of Hospice took good care of Mom. Her nurse was more than a nurse. She cared for Mom, always looking out for her and spending time with her. Mom’s aide was everything to her. Mom even gave her a new name, she called her Mary and her aide went along with that. She just loved Mary and would lighten up when she saw her. Mom loved all of them and we can’t thank you’ll enough. YOU’LL WERE ALL A BLESSING.
