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.

Thank you Joe and the Quiet Oaks staff for the wonderful care you provided to my wife, Julie, and to our family during the last few days of Julie's life. Julie was cared for with compassion and respect to the point of staff treating her like a close family member.

I chose Quiet Oaks for Julie's final days here on earth because she deserved to pass away with the dignity and personal care not available at any other facilities in the area. Further, I felt that my two children needed a supportive and nurturing environment to witness the passing of their mother. Their memories of 'how' their mother passed away will stay with them their whole lives, and I am assured that their positive, loving experience eases the pain and sadness of their loss.

Finally, thank you to all the volunteers for preparing meals and snacks to keep us nourished...allowing us to focus on Julie. Bless you all!
