Families Say Thank You
Caring Circle strives to bring compassionate care and service not only to the patient, but also to their network of support. The care that we provide to patients touches the lives of many people: parents, siblings, extended family, and friends.
Grateful families extend the legacy of a loved one in many meaningful ways. From handwritten notes, monetary donations, volunteerism, and advocacy, we are grateful for each token of support received from the families we encounter.
Nathan Rohrer and his daughters, Madeleine and Hannah, chose to honor beloved wife and mother, Lori, and her wish for one simple comfort. While Lori was at the Merlin and Carolyn Hanson Hospice Center, medical-grade soft ice helped to alleviate discomfort, distract and curb her pain.
After Lori’s passing Nathan contacted the staff at Caring Circle with a donation including a matching gift from his employer to purchase a medical-grade ice dispenser.
The family’s generosity and matching gift allowed for the purchase of two dispensers, enough for both Hanson Hospice Center family rooms. These icemakers are located just steps from patient suites and have become a wonderful addition to help create a more comfortable stay for many patients.
No matter how anyone chooses to give, we are grateful for the generosity that makes our work possible.
