Testimonials from Hospice Patients’ Families
"My mother lost her fight with COPD but not until she lived these last few months to the fullest. Her family credits her resiliency to her own headstrong and unshakable resolve, but we also know that there would be no way she could have achieved this without the care she received from the kind people at Samaritan." - Robin Parker (11/14)
"They made a very difficult time much more tolerable, and of extreme importance to me, they kept for me the promise I made to my wife that; I would not let her be in pain." - Joseph Rubino
"I cringe to think what [my husband's} final journey would have been like without your organization." - Judy Davenport
"Several times it was necessary for me to call at night, and each time that a nurse arrived, she was pleasant and caring and gave Bill excellent attention." - Carol Ortlip, Delran
"We could not have made it without you all!!" - June Pasternak, Cherry Hill
"Where and how do I begin to thank you for all you've done for Terry? You can't imagine the comfort you brought to me and to our family." - Brenda Kernan, Haddonfield
"He especially enjoyed the couple of baths provided by Ivy during his last few days alive. This was quite surprising because my uncle was not too fond of bathing, or as he would say, "water and I don't get along." Laurie Ramirez did say she trusted Ivy would get him to succumb to soap, water, and his gentle nature!" - Curtis Demps, Yorktown VA
"We just wanted to let you know how happy we are with Cynthia. She is so kind and compassionate. She makes Alice laugh. She is as much a friend as an aide. - Michelle Schonfeld, Moorestown
"How can you strive for a 5 when you are a 6! Everyone was so nice and went out of their way to make, not just my dad, but our entire family and various friends who visited as comfortable as possible." - Michelle Dudas, Florence about the Inpatient Hospice Center in Mt. Holly
"I do hope others will not be afraid to ask for help. Truely you all were exactly what we needed when we were in great need. The kindness and love is what carried me during a most difficult time."
"I never wanted to hear the word hospice because I equated that with dying...I just never anticipated what hospice care truly was. From the very first minute, the nurses and aides gave her the best care that anyone could want for their loved one." - Lillian Lupinacci, Sicklerville
"...dedication and exemplary care they gave my mother. I felt this team handled my issues as if they were caring for their own mother." - Wilma Rosa, Willingboro
"...you are angels on this earth. The attention and care given to my husband Tony during this short stay at your facility by each and every employee that came in contact with him was truly exceptional." - Kathleen Kirvan, Mount Laurel
