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.

Our Dad and father-in-law, Adam Jaskowiak, was at Quiet Oaks about four months in 2009. From the first time we walked through the doors, we knew this was a very special place. Dad received top-quality, compassionate care that allowed all of the family members to relax and enjoy our time with him when we were there. From the offering of meals to overnight accommodations, from serving us refreshments to candy dishes everywhere, we knew our needs would be met every step of the way. The staff members were always willing to talk, explain, and just be there with a comforting hand. Thank you to all, especially Dr. Lalley and the nursing staff, for your embrace of Adam and our family. You gave us a very special gift that we will never forget.
