The hospital recommended Calvary. We did some research and decided that it would the best place for my aunt. It was the best care. This facility was really made for people who really had little time to live. You would be comfortable. There were individual rooms. They had shared bathrooms. They had very caring staff and knowledgeable doctors. It was really good end-of-life care. Also, it was associated with the hospital. They could do procedures that were impossible to do at home like blood transfusions, intravenous injections, and so on. The facility was good. They even had like an everyday entertainment program, and they tried to have all the patients out. When the weather was nice, they would go with them outside in their wheelchairs. When she was in a really bad condition, we were able to stay overnight. There were 24-hour visits. So it was really well thought through. It was a hospital setting, and for my aunt, it was very appropriate. For somebody who would like to spend more time with family and with full presence in terms of state of mind, that might not be best care. However, where patients required a lot of care, I would definitely recommend them.

my dear friend was in calvary for six days. They kept her so doped up she could barely communicate. I asked that she be changed but before of shift changes she was left sitting in her own waste for well over an hour.They rob you of your dignity there.

Calvary was excellent. The staff was very good. The nurse came to my house to take care of my husband 3 times a week, 4 hours a day. She was like a member of our family. My husband was very comfortable with her.

For seven years, I have watched my father suffer from severe dementia and advanced Parkinson, leading to a gangrenous foot a month ago. Like a knight out of Camelot, Calvery emerged upon the issuance of the blessed "hospice order". From the moment Calvary was called, the quest for compassionate end-care arrived with impeccable professionalism, responsiveness and the recognition that pain is unacceptable. The nurse, Fenola, was spot-on and ensured that any break-through pain would be responded to promptly. He died at peace in the wee 4:00am hour on Thanksgiving. Generally, Thanksgiving is not a convenient day to die. You end up apologizing all day for ruining peoples' Thanksgiving morning, particularly to women who were cooking. Moreover, if one is Jewish, the requirement of a quick burial is nerve racking. The Calvary hospice nurse who came to announce my father's death was so calm and showed such genuine concern for us, that once again, I had to apologize for having this happen on Thanksgiving morning. Suffice it to say that I would highly recommend Calvary for compassionate end care. Indeed, that's the way I would choose to go.

Mu uncle stayed in this hospice when his chemo treatments were no longer working for his advanced colon cancer. I visited him several times during his 2.5 weeks stay there. The hospice was also kept very spotless, the staff made me feel welcomed, nothing was ever rushed. Care was given properly and we were able to have numerous visitors and even held a small 8 people church prayer with my uncle in his bed, without any complaints from any staff members. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone, I've never been to another place that I was so impressed by the presentation and quality of treatment. My uncle couldn't really eat anything so I can't really comment on the food. While being there I also saw lot's of family members visiting their loved ones. None of the staff ever gave us any problems or questioned us but they were available if and when we needed them. The Calvary Hospital definitely made my uncle's stay as comfortable as can be.
