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. Sincerely, S.B., Auora, IL

Sincerely, J.T., Naperville, IL

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, J.T., Naperville, IL

Thank you for everything you have done for our family to keep our mother comfortable this past month. And for our father in Dec ’19. From the complicated admission, the many visits, the communication, your staff and organization are outstanding at efficiency, understanding, and compassion.

The A.C. Family, Oakbrook, IL

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. The A.C. family, Oakbrook, IL

A.W., Mokena, IL

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! Sincerely, A.W., Mokena, IL

The E.S. Family, Tinley Park, IL

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 E.S. Family, Tinley Park, IL

G.C. Aurora, IL

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 see 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. M.O., Bridgeview, IL
