Agape House staff are ‘true diamonds’

Dear Sir,

On behalf of my whole family I would like to publicly thank the staff of Agape House. We have never seen such a group of healthcare staff that are so generous, so diligent and so empathetic as those who work there. They are true diamonds in the healthcare field and are often overlooked by the public.

So many people have a stigma about their loved ones going to Agape House, and this is mainly because it is a sign that their loved one is close to leaving behind this Earth.

However, if your loved one needs that special medical attention then there is no place better on this Island for them to be. They will be treated as individual human beings and not just a patient number.

During the time my grandmother spent there, the staff and my family became like one family, all there to love and care for my grandmother and each other until the end.

It ignited the fire in me to want to finish my own nursing degree and I hope to be as amazing a caregiver as you all are. You all are my role models.

If you are thinking of a place for volunteer work or a place for charitable donations, I would recommend looking into Agape House to keep this wonderful place going.

Thank you again for the love you showed my grandmother and she is watching over you and us now.

In loving memory of Maria Davies.
