Testimonials

They are the gold standard in the very special care they provide.

Larry S.

Throughout their entire lives, our parents sacrificed everything for us.
Our greatest gift to them during their final days was Calvary. True to the culture of proud Italian-Americans, our parents worked hard all of their lives so that their five sons could have the education and opportunities that they didn’t. So it was only natural that when dad had terminal cancer, then years later mom, uterine cancer, we took them to only place on earth that could relieve their pain and suffering with the most expert end-of-life care – Calvary Hospital – in the place they loved the most – Brooklyn. Both times, their physical and emotional pain was totally relieved with constant comfort, compassion and non-abandonment. But Calvary’s unique care didn’t stop with mom and dad. They also gave my brothers and me a whole new life that was stress-free. They took away our roles as caregivers and gave us back our simple roles as sons. We were all able to live our lives as a family again. Calvary took care of the rest. At the end of the day, Calvary and my parents had a lot in common: they made the good times great, and the tough times easier. Thank you Calvary.

Absolutely wonderful place and people. I am in awe of the spirit and faith that maintains this staff.

There was only one place that could match my sister’s love for life during her final days: Calvary Hospital.
My sister Eileen possessed an incredible love and enthusiasm for life. With her keen sense of style, she loved fashion, shopping, traveling to Europe, and finding new and exciting restaurants. So when we realized that there was no cure for her terminal cancer, there was no better place that she spend her final days than where her quality of life would never be compromised: Calvary Hospital. The staff at Calvary – in fact, every employee who we were in contact with – relieved the pain, as well as the incredible stress that we were experiencing. Eileen was treated with the integrity, dignity, and grace that she deserved…even to her very last day. Her hair was kept properly coiffed, her nails done just right, and her nurse even applied her signature make up. Eileen said the pampering made her feel loved. The staff was extraordinary in their care, as if God had hand-picked them to work there. Eileen always believed that you should never give up on life as long as you have a breath in you. Well, Calvary Hospital celebrated her life until the very end in a way that only Calvary can. Thank you, Calvary. And God bless you.

My Aunt Mary loved her Catholic religion, her Irish legacy, and a place called Calvary.
My Aunt Mary lived life with extraordinary pride, passion and purpose. Nothing made her prouder than her loving family, her Catholic faith and her Irish heritage. She passed down to all of us a determination to always work hard and help those in need. When a terminal illness began to rob her of her life, we knew that she deserved a special place to give her the dignity and care that she so greatly deserved. Being the Chief of Counterterrorism in the NYPD, I knew the City well. So the choice for Aunt Mary was simple: Calvary Hospital’s Dawn Greene Hospice at Mary Manning Walsh Home on the Upper East Side. The special staff of nurses and doctors relieved her of the physical pain, and she was spiritually comforted daily by the Catholic nuns and priests. She was surrounded by angels who gave all of us a peace and serenity that we will never forget. Thank you Calvary Hospital.

Calvary Hospital helped our dying mother receive a r’fuah sh’lemah.
The informal translation of this expression is, ‘Get Well Soon.’ But, how does one cure an incurable disease? Physically, you cannot. Emotionally and spiritually, however, Calvary’s Home Hospice proves that you can. It is a perfect healing that your magnificent program provided to Mother in her final year. Peter, a trusted family friend and EMT, who suggested that we consider inviting Calvary Hospital to come into her home and provide another kind of cure, was right. The expert staff of Calvary@Home alleviated her physical pain, as well as the mental anguish through which our family, particularly my nonagenarian father, was suffering. In fact, your staff cared as much for him as it did for my mother. Your nurse, social worker, and rabbi made sure that my mother and all of us, her family, were granted peace and serenity, free from pain, stress, and anxiety. It was a perfect healing that combined compassion and care. We witnessed firsthand how Calvary truly is Where Life Continues.

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.

I could not have asked for, nor could I have given, better care to my mom.

Carolyn Migliore, RN

My husband John was 56 when he was diagnosed with brain cancer. We had no idea of how to handle the process of dying. Until we went to Calvary Hospital. Medically, emotionally, and spiritually, you taught us how to handle John’s death. We weren’t afraid anymore.

Laurie Hathorn

Special thanks to the angels who provided the light for our brother Howard’s path. A truly exceptional staff.
