Careers

Dear Staff: We want to thank each and every one of you for the excellent care you gave our mother, Marion, during her stay there. She was happy there and she made so many new friends. Your kindness, compassion and love showed each and every day. She loved her “Bingo” and sometimes Jack had to tell her to “MYOB”. She tended to worry about everyone, and God forbid if we sat where “Mary” sits, we better get out of there before Mary got back. You made her last days and months that she was with us so comfortable. She felt so at home there. We miss her very much and we will always remember the staff at Daniels House. Love and God Bless! —Jack, Anne Marie and Tricia
