Phyllis and Sam met in 1952 and and spent more than 60 years together. Surrounded by children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, the two spent the end of lives at home thanks to Hosparus. Phyllis said, "Hosparus is taking care of both of us. It had reached the point where I couldn't take care of my husband myself and he was in a nursing home. Now, we are at home together."
She added, "Our Hosparus team really cares about us -- you can tell by how much their work means to them. I love to see them coming -- especially our nursing assistant Rosy Edwards because of her help with bathing and personal care."
Her husband Sam just loved to sing gospel hymns with chaplain Wesley Paul.
Hosparus social worker, Krissy Smothers, is inspired by patients like Phyllis and Sam and their families. "When you go into their home, you immediately feel warm and welcome. They all have such a sweet spirit, and the love and support they show for one another is a blessing."
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of Hosparus Central Kentucky patients!
