Special thanks to Margo and all the wonderful nurses and PSWs from Paramed who took such great care of our father and became part of the family by helping to fulfill his wish of staying in his own home until almost the very end.
We were privileged to have our dad spend his final days at Innisfree Hospice where they took wonderful care of him in a beautiful environment.
