What Our Patients Say

"Your team is truly blessed with a magnificent healing spirit. You should all be proud of the work you do."

"It was so wonderful to see you on Saturday. You all put on a beautiful ceremony, which is another healthy way for us to be complete about Dad's death. Your team is truly blessed with a magnificent healing spirit. You should all be proud of the work you do."

"Thank you also for the wonderful care you gave our dad in the last few weeks of his life."

"A story was repeated to us about when one of your volunteers brought a cocker spaniel to visit our dad. That story has a very special meaning to us. You see, we had a black cocker spanel as our family dog many years ago. I am sure Dad made the connection to our beloved dog Cinders as well before he passed. Thank you also for the wonderful care you gave our dad in the last few weeks of his life. The work you all do is very special and a true blessing to me. Thank you."

"I can't tell you how happy it made these people and my brother as well, your hard work is evident. Your generosity of time and caring is evident."

"I'm telling you all this so that you can know that all the people you create these baskets for are real and receiving a basket of goodies really does make a difference to them. Colby was in a nursing home for the last three months of his life because that was the place he could receive the best care. We were able to share many of the items in the basket with other residents…some were people that had no visitos or no hope for a Christmas gift. I can't tell you how happy it made these people and my brother as well, your hard work is evident. Your generosity of time and caring is evident.

To all McLean Staff & Hospice Personnel

To all McLean Staff & Hospice Personnel,

I did not include any names on purpose because I was afraid I would miss one of the dozens that provided care, comfort, dignity and love to my mother and our family!  That should be your motto: McLean CCDL. I periodically have to pause or this note will get wet. 

I could not have put my mother in kinder hands than all of you.  I have been touched beyond words and what all of you do is a blessing and a necessity that fills a void for those of us in a situation affecting a beloved family member. 

"I can't thank you enough for all of your help during Mom's final months."

"I can't thank you enough for all of your help during Mom's final months. Your knowledge, skill, patience and understanding made an impossible job doable. Knowing I could ask questions any time, night or day, was very comforting. Having such wonderful nurses come out twice a week was a blessing."
