To the Editor:

 Last month my mother passed away. She was 99 years old. Over the last two years we were blessed to have Grande Ronde Hospital’s Home Health and Hospice care team administer to her needs. Whether it was a social worker, nurse or spiritual adviser, the care team was always there to assist not only my mom but also my wife and myself, who were her caregivers. A hospice nurse was at our home at 2 a.m. to comfort us on my mother’s passing. We are very fortunate here in the Grande Ronde Valley to have such a dedicated team of individuals to give us this important service. I am truly grateful to GRH Home Health and Hospice for being with my family during my mother’s stay here in Cove.
