Stories & Tributes

My husband, Steve, battled pancreatic cancer for almost two years, bravely and confidently, until the cancer took control. When he arrived at Quiet Oaks one Thursday night in June, he had taken a turn for the worse. From the time we arrived at Quiet Oaks, until his passing 5 days later, he was treated with care and respect. My children and I spent the days and nights there, to be with him, and we too were treated very well. Thank you so much for the amazing care he received during his last days, and for all the kindness shown to our family by the entire staff at Quiet Oaks.

Sincerely,

My beloved wife of 36+ years died of metastatic breast cancer in March 2009. In spite of the excellent in-home hospice care she was receiving, it was a very difficult decision to realize that our family could no longer care for her at our home. None of us wanted to believe that we had come to that time, but within hours of being at Quiet Oaks we realized we had made the best decision. We could now be family, instead of trying to be amateur nurses during my wife's last days. The hospitality and medical care by the staff at Quiet Oaks were outstanding. I was particularly impressed with the resident-staff ratio and the availability of meals, snacks, and living quarters for family members who chose to spend the night. Being at Quiet Oaks was a comforting ending to my wife's well-lived life.
