An Unforgettable Diamond Anniversary

Howard and Ernestine became Mr. & Mrs. Grimmett on the 9th of December in 1962. Howard was recently admitted into hospice care. When Danielle McCartney, our Social Worker, learned that their anniversary was approaching, she indirectly got ideas on how to make it a special one. When asked what they would like to do for their milestone 60th anniversary, Ernestine replied that, if Howard were able to, they would have loved to have gone to their favorite restaurant, Olive Garden.

At Pike County Hospice, we are always searching for ways to make every day special; we love to go above and beyond for our patients. Thanks to our Home Care & Hospice Foundation, we were able to surprise them with a beautiful bouquet of anniversary flowers and warm meals straight from Olive Garden.

Ernestine stated that Danielle “sure was sneaky” with her gathering of information, and she was overwhelmingly grateful for it. The Grimmetts made sure that we know how much they appreciate the thoughtfulness that was shown to them on their special day.

Mr. Grimmett, an Army Veteran, was gifted with a special blanket that we give to all of our veterans as a thank you for their service to our country.

Here at Pike County Hospice, we don’t count the days – we make the days count! Happy Anniversary, Mr. & Mrs. Grimmett!
