What the families of our patients are saying

We can’t thank you enough for assistance for our mom.

We can’t thank you enough for assistance for our mom. Ronda was her ongoing hospice nurse and we felts so lucky to have her.  She was the perfect fit because they were both just wonderfully nice people, soft-spoken and gentle souls.  Ronda always spoke so kindly and gently to her that fit her personality to a “t”.  Ronda is an amazing nurse and person.  She called every week, with a report which was always wonderful to receive because it gave us the professional opinion of Anna’s condition that we were so glad to know.  Ronda was always so prompt in responding to our needs and questions, and returned by call almost before I could put my phone down!  Staff members also spoke so highly of her.  There were other nurses or CNAs along the way, but I am sorry, I am not sure of all their names, all very nice.  Also, Kaylee was her CNA and also very pleasant.

To the caring team at Angels Grace, we have deep gratitude for all the special care and services you provided to our dear mother during her time on hospice, up until the end of her earthly journey.  Liz and the angels that worked with her were very kind, not only to my mom, but to our entire family as well.  May God bless you all abundantly for the work that you do.  Wishing you peace, love, and joy at the holidays and always.

We will be forever thankful to Angels Grace.

When you came into mom’s life four months ago, we didn’t envision the magnitude of the care you would provide and what it would mean for her. A “thank you” doesn’t seem enough but were are so very appreciative, especially for Lisabeth and her extraordinary ability to provide compassionate and highly skilled care for mom as well as being a good listener in my times of need.  We also appreciate the spiritual guidance Kathy provided for mom and dad and reassurance for us all.  All the staff at Angels Grace was great, and the care you provided certainly took away some of our burden and let us focus on mom.  We will be forever thankful to Angels Grace.

Enclosed you will find a donation in memory of our mom. Her care, although short in duration, was exceptional, particularly when considering the impact of the pandemic.  Debi and the others for Angels Grace were so gracious in their care for mom, and their communication with the family was a blessing to us all.  We couldn’t have been more pleased with how mom was cared for in her last days. We hope Angels Grace and all of your staff stay well and continue to do the amazing work that you do.

I want to thank you for your love and care for my beloved mom.

Dear Angels Grace Hospice Staff, This note is overdue but I want to thank you for your love and care for my beloved mom who resided at the Bickford of Aurora. Ronda, Kathy, Joe and Sandra (volunteer) were so loving and kind to my mom. They recognized that although she may have been confused about the present, she had many interesting and wonderful memories, of the past. They connected with her and got her to share stories of her family history and earlier times in her life. Kathy and Ronda made a point to call me and tell me about their conversations with her. Kathy encouraged me to get her to talk and to ask her questions during this “window of time”. Ronda was always on top of her care needs and responded promptly to any of my concerns. It is with heartfelt gratitude that I thank them.

I write to thank you for your loving care of my mother.

Dear Angels Grace Hospice Family, It is with deep gratitude and affection that I write to thank you for your loving care of my mother. It was a sad day when my sister and her husband brought our 97 year old mom to the Springs for the staff of trained caregivers she required. But we soon saw her graduate out of hospice care to become engaged and happy in her new surroundings. As my mom’s Alzheimer progressed and her health faltered, your hospice services became necessary, for the last time. While it was hard to say what Mom knew or was aware of in her last days, she was deeply religious and firm in her faith. If she thought she might have one foot in heaven, she might have read the Angel’s Grace as who would deliver her. Few of my friends were so blessed to see their parents smiling and peaceful in their last days. You were a great comfort for her and later for me and my family at the visitation. Blessings and thanks for your loving care of her! Grateful for your sympathy, sincerely.

Thank you for the calls and support you all have provided.

I want to thank everyone at Angels Grace Hospice for the care and love you showed mom in her last days, and to me, her daughter D, as we traveled the paperwork. It is hard to believe that mom was on the borderline to being admitted into the program, and yet she left this earthly life in 2 short weeks from being admitted into the hospice program. Again, thank you for the calls and support you all have provided, and a big thank you to Chaplain Joe N. for presiding over mom’s graveside service. Please accept the enclosed donation and use as you see the biggest need.

May God bless you all for your kindness!

Karen S. was mom’s care manager, and together with Veronica D., I was always kept informed, and knew mom was in good hands! The pandemic made things extra hard but Karen always managed to keep me in the loop. Veronica would also call me just to see how I was doing, which was so thoughtful of her. This was my second experience with Angels Grace. Initially, mom was cared for my Cathyan and Jane, who has since retired. They were also great caregivers. Reverend Esi Sey, your chaplain, was a great comfort to our family and her music was especially comforting to mom. May God bless you all for your kindness!

Our family can’t thank you enough for the love, support, and care you gave our mom.

Dear Angels Grace Staff, Our family can’t thank you enough for the love, support, and care you gave our mom, and by extension us, during the last couple of years of her life.  In the beginning, she looked forward to Jeanne’s palliative visits and quickly became mom’s ‘safe person’.  Their private conversations always left mom feeling positive and energized.  Later, when the transition to hospice care became necessary, Cathyann did a beautiful job of being encouraging but honest.  Mom knew that she was in great hands.  The other Angels Grace team members were helpful too.  Mom always looked forward to visits from Joe and his dog, as well as the chaplain and aides. Due to the circumstances, we were unable to hold a public memorial service for our mom, but on July 25th, just one day after what would have been our parents’ 66th wedding anniversary, our family gathered to celebrate mom’s beautiful life and lay our parents to rest together.  It was simple but meaningful service in remembrance of a lady who loved others so very well.  Count yourselves among her loved ones…you most certainly were!

The comfort you gave to him and our whole family was amazing.

Dear Angels Grace, thank you so much for the loving care you gave my husband. Although it was a short time, the comfort you gave to him and our whole family was amazing. We found the light blue booklet on the stages of death to be very helpful. Thank you also for your card and angel seed packet. What a wonderful idea for remembrance. We also planted a package of “Grandpa” morning glories. It is fun to see all of the seeds grow and remember. Thank you again and God bless you.
