"Simultaneously both my parents got sick [my dad: stroke with complete blindness and mom: cancer]. They moved into our home with my family and we handled this situation for several years until he passed away. Over the years my mom started as an out-patient going to the day care for adults at Mary Wade. She thrived with these social interactions and was able to stay with us at home. I was able to remain in the work force and life went on! Years passed, she progressed with sickness, and she needed more than my family could give her. She moved into Mary Wade full time for the last 7 months of her life. She was visited daily my family and for each and every day we witnessed a compassionate staff. Hospice added to her comfort and ours! Mary Wade holds a special place in our hearts because of the care given to my mom!"
"It was hard leaving my home, but it was the right thing to do. I love it here. I’ve made friends and the staff are wonderful."
“I am happy to be able to continue making a donation to Mary Wade. I think back to when my uncle was cared for in the early 2000’s. He lived there with respect and dignity for many years. Thank you.”
"Honey, I'm home!" Bill left his beard behind at Mary Wade. Thank you The Mary Wade Home The Mary Wade Home .(worth repeating) for the excellent care." — with Bill Markunas.
"Although it is difficult to witness the ravages of aging encompass a loved one, Mary Wade has welcomed our family into its family and has lovingly made mom one of their own!!"
"My Mom lived at Mary Wade during a difficult time in her life and everyone was so wonderful to her and the family- thanks to all the staff!"
