Thank you to all the staff at the Long Term Care Unit of the Lady Dunn Health Centre for taking such good care of Mom for the last year of her life and a special thank you to all those who helped us so much the last few days of her life, from the doctors, nurses, even the kitchen staff for always making sure we had fresh coffee, tea, snacks – it made this sad time more bearable and we were very grateful for all the caring and concern.
