-the Wife of an HPCG Patient

“Thank you for the wonderful, caring, and sensitive way your staff provided the opportunity for me to care for and be with my wife in our final weeks together”

-the Husband of an HPCG Patient

“Your staff helped us as a family to understand the importance of family – how each member deals with the final months of a loved one and how each has a role to comfort one another. Thank you”

-the Daughter of an HPCG Patient

“Your thoughtful support and kindness are sincerely appreciated. Mom passed peacefully with loved ones present. I was thankful for being given the gift of spending time with mom. We “talked” and shared memories and reassured each other. Although there wasn’t any visible interaction, I leaned over and asked, as always for a kiss – she closed her open mouth to my cheek and then reopened when I moved away. She knew! I knew!”

-the Son of an HPCG Patient

“Thank you for the care and attention you gave my husband. He looked forward to your visits and enjoyed everyone. He continued to have a good sense of humor and great outlook but was also practical and knew what to expect. You are all very special people – doing a difficult job. Thanks for allowing me to continue being his wife and not his nurse”

-the Wife of an HPCG Patient

“Your expert staff took great care of our father. They helped us understand what to expect and did a lot of though things for us. They took care of Dad with tender-loving care. It made his days near the end more bearable. We also deeply appreciate the team of counselors, social workers and volunteers that helped our family through this process called ‘grief'”

-the Son of an HPCG Patient

“You provided the knowledge and the compassion we needed to make it through the last months of my wife’s life. You brought the message of love and guidance that we were not alone. ‘Thank you’ sounds so hollow but we are truly grateful and will always remember what you did for us”

-the Husband of an HPCG Patient

“I have told so many people that I thought I couldn’t go on.  Then I came to your support group.  It was incredible to share my heart and soul with others who understood and could share their feelings.  It saved my family and my life”
