"The professional, and compassionate care was appreciated by our entire family during the time our mother spent at the hospice unit at Kenmore Mercy. Our family felt supported as we made this journey with our mother. The swing bed room was comfortable and large enough for friends and family to spend time with Mom. Knowing that our mother was well cared for made this time less stressful for our family. We greatly appreciate your help making Mom's last days peaceful and helping us provide the dignity we all wanted for her."
