Community Residential Hospice Testimonials
A terminal illness is not just a physical diagnosis. It also involves a commitment to care for family and close friends during the progress of an illness and in time of bereavement.
We believe that care giving is a matter of mutual support. Everyone providing care in a palliative or bereavement situation needs to be able to receive as well as to give support.
Here's what our families are saying about Hospice Prince Edward's Community Residential Home.
"I may or may not be able to repay your gift of kindness, but I promise to share it with others, so more people can give the magical gift of kindness to make this owrld a better place."
"Words cannot express my feelings, nor my thanks, for all your help. Your thoughtfulness will always be remembered. If the world had more people like you in it, it would be a better place. You do make a difference."
"Straight from my heart, a very special thanks for your wonderful care and kindness towards my sister and her family."
"I just wanted to express my thanks for the exemplary care provided to my patient, who recently stayed with you. It was a challenging case for everyone, for sure! I am looking forward to collaborating with you again.">
"Our family lost a wonderful sister this morning and as tough as it was, it was made so much easier to handle with the wonderful hospice home and the excellent caring staff. From our family we say thank you for making journey a pleasant one."
"Thank you for making our family feel so comfortable and welcomed. Mom spent her last days surrounded by people who although where not "family" truly cared & treated Mom & us for that matter like family. It was a precious time for me to be able to spend as much time as I could by Mom's side, even those rough nights were I sleep bent over the edge of her bed because she wouldn't let go of my hand. Your thoughtfulness and compassion during our time of need made what was a very hard long day one that was not only bearable but relaxing.I am extremely thankful Heather stopped me before I ran out the door after mom passed, so that I was able to walk out of the house with Mom and spend those last few seconds with her before she was "taken from us" for good. Serving up snacks, tea & coffee through the night as we all sat by Mom's side waiting for her to let go is something we very much appreciated as it was a long day for all of us.
I will never forget that last conversation I had with Mom on that Tuesday Morning and I have the wonderful staff at Hospice to thank for that opportunity. I could hear her Johnny Reid CD playing in the background; to know that she was "having a party" happy & even had a brief conversation with my son before hanging up the phone is truly a priceless moment for me."
"Please forgive me for contacting you via email but our family wanted to extend our sincere appreciation to each of you and to your support staff for taking such excellent care of our mom during her illness.
We were astounded by the warm, caring nature each one of you displayed towards mom and it made a world of difference to her and to us as a family going through such a difficult time. You are wonderful people doing a remarkable job."
"Please know how truly fortunate we feel to have Hospice Prince Edward in our community. From the time we talked through your door you made us feel comfortable and gave us the peace of mind knowing we were not alone. Mom's comfort meant everything to us while she made her final journey and you truly made that possible.""We talk about you and the hospice to everyone who asks about our mom and what a special experience we had there. We will never forget your genuine warmth and care."
"Thank you for the kind words and compassionate manner during our short time with you. Mom passed with dignity and peace all because of you. We and all of Prince Edward are to be very thankful to have such an amazing staff and house."
"Thank you is not enough for the outstanding care you provided mom in her last days. It was so much more than we ever expected. The entire Hospice Prince Edward team will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart. I will NEVER forget my last phone conversation with mom on that Tuesday morning and I have your staff to thank for that!"
"Thank you for making our family's time today so peaceful, comfortable and welcoming. Even though my Dad didn't spend a lot of time there, it was precious time to our family. Your thoughtfulness and compassion during our time of need made what was a very hard day one that was not only bearable, but very relaxing and unrushed.
The ability to spend as much time with Dad, both before and after he passed, and even after the funeral took him on his final drive through the County, was so appreciated. Being able to talk as a family after he passed and gather our thoughts while we enjoyed a cup of coffee in the living room, remembering his life, was just what we needed.
I know my Dad was the first person to be welcomed through your doors and into your care. I hope the families that follow us through this wonderful facility will find the calm, peaceful and respectful place for their loved ones too."
"Thank you will never be enough for everything you all did for my family. We were "chosen" to be able to come there, and couldn't have been more grateful."
"To Heather, Melissa, Deb, Melissa, John, Mercedes, Kerri, Liz, Kathryn, Amy and all people who helped with my mom. She was 'particular', we all know, so truly appreciate all that you did to accommodate us. None of you will ever be forgotten in our journey. And again, you are truly angels to do what you do every day. It amazes me how genuine you truly are. We are blessed to have gotten to know you all. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts."
"I am writing to say a BIG THANK YOU! To all the staff that keep things running very smoothly, to the PSWs, nursing staff, doctors and the many volunteers. You should be very proud of the way that each and every one of you help to make someone's end of life more comfortable, both for the family and the patient. The home like atmosphere is an asset, but the support, caring and compassion everyone has shown makes this place like no other. The caring you have shown to my Dad will never be forgotten."
