Careers

Daniel’s House Nurses and Staff: My sisters and I would like to thank you for all the wonderful care that you all gave our mother for the last three years of her life. We must tell you that you all were great to her and we always felt comfortable when ever we came to see her, it was like having an extended family. The nurses were just fantastic with us when ever we had questions or concerns for mom, even though we knew at times we bothered you with something small or perhaps not as important to you as it was to us, you never let us know. We will always feel that we found a gem in Daniel’s House.
