Maureen provided outstanding support to my family and my ailing mother. On several occasions, I personally witnessed her tenacity in support of her patients, despite the frailty of their condition. I was most impressed when I called the nurse’s station and she recognized my caller ID, addressing me by my name. She was up-to-date on all of Mom’s data, as well as kind and loving to her even when Mom could not communicate. My mother passed away on Feb. 12, and I know that her last few months were enhanced by Maureen’s tender loving care.
