Calvary is truly where life continues!

“My father was everything to me. In May 2020, at the height of the pandemic, he was at a Manhattan hospital all alone. Calvary Hospice kept him safe and out of pain. Dad got the tender loving care he deserved at the end of his life.”

Salvatore Deliteris Sr.
My dad Salvatore Deliteris Sr. always loved being around the family. Due to the pandemic we were not allowed to visit during his final days in a leading New York City hospital.

We were so afraid that he would die alone. But our fear and anxiety were quickly averted when we contacted Calvary Hospital’s expert home hospice team. They came to his bedside with comfort and love and never left him. The nurse filled the room with his favorite sounds of Bette Midler and the wonderful, calming scent of lavender. Dad immediately sensed that he was not alone.

My mom, Uncle Jimie and I always knew that there was no one better than Calvary to relieve the physical pain, but we never imagined how extraordinary they are in curing the pain of loneliness. Because of Calvary’s hospice, we felt that we were spiritually and emotionally alongside dad to the very end. Which, to me, was nothing less than a miracle.

Sincerely,
Salvatore Deliteris Jr.

My CalvaryCare® Experience – Salvatore Deliteris Jr.

Salvatore Deliteris, Jr. has had a relationship with Calvary Hospital long before his father came under our care.

For the past decade, Sal has helped publicize our bereavement support groups in Brooklyn. Sal has visited Calvary’s Camp Compass®, our annual weeklong summer day camp for grieving children. He was so moved by the impact of this program, Sal and his uncle Jimie treated 50 of the children and teens who attend our bereavement support groups to a delicious barbeque dinner and Brooklyn Cyclones game. Some Calvary bereavement counselors were on hand to enjoy the fun too!

“My brother Sal and I were very close. His joy in life was being around our family especially during the holidays with our sister Michelle. During the pandemic when we couldn’t visit Sal in the hospital, we were living a nightmare.

Our family would not let him die alone. We called in Calvary’s expert hospice team to sit at his bedside with their remarkable end-of-life care. They immediately relieved his physical pain, and our stress and Anxiety, with the comfort in knowing that there was always someone with him. I will never forget how you took care of my brother.”
