A Godsend

I was pleased to see that East End Hospice received the highest possible five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. But, personally, I do not think that five stars are enough. To put it simply, there are no better people in the world than the folks at the East End Hospice.

During my wife’s battle with cancer they were able to keep her comfortable at home until her passing. The hospice nurses and aides made the unbearable bearable for both my wife and me. No question that we had was left unanswered. No problem that we encountered was left unaddressed. And all the time, the aides and nurses did their utmost to maintain her dignity.

I do not know how people are able to do such work. But I am eternally grateful that there are people in this world who can. East End Hospice is a godsend, and they deserve the unwavering support of this community.
