Thank you to all who cared for our dear friend
To the editor:
It has been a little over a month since we lost a dear friend, mentor, coach and peer. Our friend Jaynee Carolus had remarkable care 24/7 since she came home from Hershey Medical Center in mid-November. UPMC Hospice provided wonderful care and were available anytime if someone had a question about her condition and care. A special shout out to Lauren RN, who was very patient and compassionate when dealing with Jaynee. Also, the aides who came 3 times a week to bathe her. They would take their time and not rush to make sure she was comfortable.
We were very pleased with the caregivers that were hired to take care of Jaynee. The women communicated very well with each other about Jaynee’s condition each shift. Also, they developed a friendship with each other and Jaynee. We couldn’t be more thankful for having this team of caregivers who showed compassion, faithfulness, and flexibility. Thank you so much Jan, Molly, Angela, Nicole and Dorene for being there for her until the end.
Lastly, we would like to thank Jaynee’s Earth Angels and friends who were there for her when she needed them the most!
