I just wanted to reach out and to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! I want to let you know how much I appreciate you all and the love and care you have shown my nana and my family over this past month. We are so blessed to have her in your care, I have seen the way her nurses speak with her and handle her and I want them to know that it does not go unnoticed. You are treating my nana like she is your own and that is all I could ask for. I pray for my nana but I also pray for all of you because you are truly angels - you make such a difference in patients’ lives every day whether they can thank you for it or not! You are appreciated - thank you!
