February 13, 2002
My husband, Gerald Walters, was a resident of Tonganoxie Nursing Center for the last 13 months of his life. There he received exceptional care from the entire staff. Nurse’s aides were attentive, loyal and prompt at responding to his needs. The LPN’s and RN’s showed great caring, making him comfortable, understanding, as well as professional. Gerald suffered a devastating disease that required constant care the last days of his life with us. The nursing staff was extraordinary in providing comfort, compassion loving care, until the end of his life on Jan. 21.
