My mom was a very frail, elegant lady. She had lost her sight to macular degeneration and had many medical challenges. Patricia Quast-French was her home nurse, sent to us by Vineyard Nursing Association. Patty is a beautiful, caring RN who treated my mother with courtesy, respect, and great skill. She became part of our family over her many visits. On the night Mom died, she stayed with us until the end. Mom loved her. Her compassionate care was exceptional and will never be forgotten.
