“It brings such purpose to my life in knowing that we have a caring staff, growing in knowledge and open to new ideas, who offer a valuable service to our community. When we do our comfort calls at the end of each day, I can hear the joy emanating from our patients’ hearts and know that we are making an extreme difference in their lives.”
The seed of caring was planted in Edna Earl as a child growing up in Norfolk, Virginia, in a nurturing family that shared their gift of compassion with the neighborhood.
