Review for Gabriel House of care , Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2008 I had my first evaluation at Mayo Clinic. Due to Hep C i needed a liver transplant . We, my husband and I, were lucky to be able to stay at the Lighthouse. There were 4 rooms for people needing transplants. Director Ed .... was determined to find a bigger place for people needing transplant. Eventually after negotiations with the Mayo Clinic the Gabriel House of Care was build. Although Ed retired soon after, a capable neu director was found. Valerie Callahan. She and her staff have been doing a remarkable job. Since the opening I've been a guest at GHoC multiple times. I've had complications, needed dialysis, had another liver transplant and kidney transplant. My husband and I had great support from the staff. But let's not forget all the volunteers, the many Organisationen, that have been helping the sick and their care givers, by providing dinners, entertainment (music) during the week and on holidays. There have been cooking classes, yoga and meditation classes for all the guests and as far as I know, many more.
So, once again, thanks to Mrs Callahan, her staff and the Volunteers and all the organizations trying to making life more comfortable for the patients/guests at Gabriel House of Care.
A very grateful thank you from me (Karin Delagi) and my awesome husband (Dan Bates), not to forget my son Ronald.
