National Home Care and Hospice Month: What Our Patients Are Saying

November 18, 2014

As November marches forward toward the Thanksgiving holiday, we here at Concordia continue to celebrate National Home Care and Hospice Month by honoring the millions of nurses, therapists, aides and social workers who make a difference in the lives of the people they serve. And we will continue to shine a spotlight on those special caregivers who tirelessly deliver high-quality care in our patients’ homes every week this month.

We could talk all day about how great we think our Concordia Visiting Nurses (CVN) caregivers are, but this week, we wanted to share some of the positive comments we hear directly from our patients themselves. If you are just joining us, be sure to check out our post from a couple weeks ago, too: a letter from CVN President and CEO Martin Trettel.

Testimonials from CVN patients and families
“My nurse Tracie was the best! I really appreciate all of my care. I believe that the medical field invention of having nurses go out to patients was one of the very best things that could happen. It’s wonderful for people like myself who can’t get out. I’m sure so many appreciate your services, and I will always ask for CVN.” – Clifford G.

“CVN’s staff has been wonderful with my father. From what I saw as his daughter and as a nurse, the service was great the last time we used CVN for his care, and it was wonderful this time, too!” – Daughter of James D.

“Please let it be said that Joyce was a wonderful nurse. She was so patient and kind. I try to always stay optimistic, and Joyce really helped me through this. She always took those extra few moments to listen. I would definitely use CVN’s services again if needed, and I hope that I would once again get Joyce as my nurse.” – Bonnie W.

“My care went very well and was greatly appreciated! The CVN nurses went over my medications every time, and they never left until they were sure I didn’t have any questions. They were all very kind.” – Bette B.
