Words of gratitude from patients, families, staff, and donors.

 

“The staff at the Loan Closet was very friendly and easy to work with. I had borrowed items for my mother in anticipation of her return to her residence from the skilled nursing facility. It was so convenient and accessible. VNHC is such a blessing for this community!”

– Marion Schlinger

“When I was discharged from the hospital, I was surprised at how quickly I was contacted by VNHC. My contact, Shannon Dutter (Physical Therapist), scheduled an appointment for me the next day. She was incredibly helpful, kind, considerate, a real team player with a great deal of compassion. I found her to be very helpful in going the extra mile to coordinate with other providers. Your Loan Closet was a great help as well, and saved me untold expenses in terms of having to rent or buy equipment. I am very grateful for the help I received from VNHC!”

– Jim King

 

“My experience with VNHC was nothing short of fantastic.  Mary Moore (Physical Therapist)was professional and concerned. She said ‘If there’s a problem, don’t hesitate to call’ and I just felt that I was in good hands with a person for whom I just wasn’t another case on their list. She was genuinely concerned for my welfare. I just can’t say enough about my experience with VNHC –  it gave me comfort to know that they were there to help me with my recovery, answer the questions that would certainly come up, and show me steps for getting stronger. Having VNHC at my side was wonderful! I really can’t say enough about it.”

Al and Bonnie

“It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that we, under your guidance, and you from hospice gave Bonnie the very best possible treatment.  There was never any pain or discomfort – at complete peace at all times.  She truly was completely surrounded by love and caring attendance from all of us, and passed with dignity knowing she was so loved and cared for. You are such a blessing and we greatly appreciate your precious service.”

– Alfred LoCascio

 

Michael and Ruth Borrayo (1)

“When my mother, Ruth Borrayo passed. I lost my soulmate (which might make me a momma’s boy). I was a warrior for my mother and determined to make this a smooth transition, but little did I know what it took.  Thank God for what you do. Your guidance was imperative to the result, which even though heartbreaking, could not have been any smoother. Twenty four hours a day you were genuinely the greatest staff I have ever had the honor to work with. I will be making monthly donations to help sustain the incredible service you provide. Thank you sincerely.”

– Michael Borrayo

 

Dina Murillo

“The tools and service from the Loan Closet made such a difference for me. It is truly a blessing. Having a free resource such as this in our community is so important. I really don’t know how I would have gotten around without all of the help and support.”

– Dina Murillo

 

YossemGuyKids

“In the midst of our heartbreak and loss, our family was comforted and cared for by our new-found extended family, Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care and all of you who support this treasured and trusted organization. VNHC was there when we needed them. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

– the Yossem-Guy family

 “I give because I care about people and because I know it’s the right thing to do. I believe in our mission. We are good at what we do. There are people who cannot afford our care and I want to do my part to help them have access to it. Sure there are other places that you can give to, but by giving to VNHC I know I am helping those in need.”

– Lynn Gamble

Scott Ackerman

“I work for VNHC and both my parents benefited greatly from the highest quality care possible while on our Hospice service.  Honoring their memory was a major factor in making my donation.  I would encourage others to give because I think here is no better cause than VNHC’s mission of ‘trusted and compassionate care for all’.”

– Scott Ackerman

 

Dorothea Muller

“I give because it just makes me feel good. That was how I was raised – to be giving to others. It is rewarding knowing that I can help others who may not be as fortunate as I am.”
