Careers

Dear Lisa (Carroll) We wanted to thank you for all you did for our family. You were so supportive and dedicated in caring for Christine. You went above and beyond your duties in helping us to set up care plans, speaking to the doctor, calling after hours to check in to see how things were going, and giving Christine and us support through a difficult time. We feel very fortunate to have had you for Christine’s nurse. You are a remarkable person and we thank you again for all you did. Sincerely, The Charles and Christine F. Family
