We were truly blessed the day Calvary Staff became involved in my mom’s care at the nursing home where she was a resident. The most supportive health care team I have ever met.

We used Calvary’s at home hospice for my father. I cannot say enough good things about them. They were the most wonderful caring, compassionate human beings I have ever encountered. They treated him with the utmost respect, dignity and gentleness. Bless you, Calvary. We shall never forget your kindness. Thank you.

My Mother received Calvary at Home Hospice Care, and she was given excellent care by the nurses and home health aides… The nurses that come  to check on my mother were very professional, friendly and compassionate, and did everything to make her comfortable… With the help of Calvary we were able to honor my Mother’s wishes to be at home, and to die with dignity surrounded by her family.

Memorial Day is a remembrance of the dead; the soldiers, contractors, tech reps, engineers and all the people that served and sacrificed their lives for our freedom. It’s their memory that we celebrate.

You gave my dad during his final days what no one else could ever have given him: the quality of life he deserved. I don’t know where you found the angels that work there.
