Tour of the Dawn Greene Hospice

History

The Dawn Greene Hospice was made possible by a gift of $4 million from the Jerome L. Greene Foundation to ArchCare for the benefit of Calvary Hospital. Mrs. Greene, the Foundation’s leader until her death in 2010, was a generous benefactor to Calvary Hospital. Her advocacy of Calvary’s mission helped strengthen care across our continuum, including inpatient, home hospice, and home health care.

Testimonials

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

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.

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.

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.

Gail Stadler

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.

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

Carolyn Migliore, RN

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.

My husband Jimmy suffered terribly with the pain of advanced cancer. The HMOs denied us financial coverage for Calvary. They left us with Jimmy to die an agonizing death. But Calvary wouldn’t abandon us. You said, ‘If we can’t care for Jimmy, let us close our doors rather than close our hearts.

Joyce Parks

Once my wife, Maureen, was at Calvary, her suffering eased. She was sitting up, talking, and even eating ice cream. For those few precious days, you gave her back her dignity — and you gave me back my wife.

When my sister Lois was diagnosed with terminal cancer, I knew, being a nurse myself, that Calvary offered the best in end-of-life care. Everything I heard about Calvary Hospital and their nurses was true. I’d never seen medical care like it.
