Our family wishes to thank Hillsdale Nursing Home "Maple Grove Staff" for "going above and beyond", with their hard work, thoughtfulness, compassion and love they showed our mother during her 11 year stay. We appreciated their encouragement, guidance and assistance to our family when stages were most difficult.
We also would like to thank our friends who, throughout moms 12 years of illness provided us with a friendly ear during these challenging times.
