"Returned dignity"

My father was recently placed at sheldon unit after suffering for over ten years with Alzheimer's. He spent his last couple of weeks here on palliative care. I cannot thank and praise all the staff here enough. They really are a great team. After this cruel disease robbed my dad of everything, his memory,communication, dignity basically everything.. I feel that at least his dignity was returned once he was placed here just by the way the staff care and this was a comfort for us in his final days.. I wouldn't hesitate to place anyone I love here personally...
