I only have compliments. Your staff accompanied me during the very difficult time of taking care of someone with incurable cancer. I don’t know how I would have done it without you. The team supported the patient on this final leg of their journey. This was my second experience as an informal caregiver. It breaks the cycle of isolation. A big thank you to all of you.Marie
Thank you kindly to the entire team that Pascal met: doctors, nurses, care providers, …he used to say that he was very lucky, and lacked for nothing. To him, the team were angels he was meeting. Thank you again, you are wonderful.Céline
Just a note to say thank you for the care that my mother Graziella received, and for your help and compassion. Thank you for helping us keep her at home, where she wanted to be, as long as possible. As you have shown, you do more than a job, it is a calling. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.Lidia
