Nobody looks forward to preparing for the end of their life so there are often many details we are not aware of. The nurses and care givers at Carolyn Croxton Slane made the event dignified for my aunt and compassionate for the entire family. Each member of the staff spent hours with my aunt in just listening to her talk about what she wanted to. They made her as comfortable as possible, even giving her the short sleeve nightgown of her choosing.
We had many family members who were out of town. The staff kept them all informed of her progress and provided ways for them to reach out to my aunt and be part of this of this difficult time.
When my sister and I arrived we were pleasantly surprised to see such a clean yet home like feeling facility. It offered each of the 6 patience the privacy of their room, which was quaint. Each room was color themed in soft and soothing colors. Then there was a large selection of common area gathering spaces, which they opened up to family members who would like to rest during extended visits. Always having a fresh pot of coffee, snacks and water to allow the visitors to focus on spending time with their love ones.
Once we arrived the staff was so sweet. They helped explain every step that was occurring and provided suggestions on what we should do. Each staff member introduced themselves and told us their experiences with my aunt during her short stay. They were honest and pretty exact about all the events to her passing. All the staff was available for a hug and a shoulder to cry on.
While it is nobody’s choice to plan for a hospice, if the need arises Carolyn Croxton Slane is a place you can rely on for the best transition and care.
