"Care of a loved one"

About: Victoria Hospital / Medical High Dependency

(as a relative),

My darling spent her last few days in the medical high dependence unit.

While I'm devastated she's gone, the care from the nursing staff was at all times personal, professional and caring.

I thanked those nurses I could while I was visiting, and would like any others involved in her care to know how much their work was appreciated.

I would say the service was excellent (which it was). But that makes it sound like a job, and the work these nurses do goes way beyond that. I don't think I'd have the strength to deal with what they have to.

Just thank you for the care and compassion you showed her.
