Hospice gives family more time together

May 21, 2018

Paulette Gimbel’s smile will never be forgotten. She touched so many lives as a mother, grandmother and school aide in Linton, N.D.

Gimbel’s daughter, Amy Davis, will always remember the final weeks of her mom’s life, a time when they were able to grow even closer. Sanford Bismarck Hospice made that possible.

Gimbel passed away in fall 2016, but with caring support from the hospice team, Davis, her father, Terry Gimbel and brother, Jamie Gimbel, were able to cherish each moment and make new memories to hold in their hearts.

“The care that my mom received and the support that hospice provided my family was amazing,” Davis said.

Hospice made caring for Gimbel at home possible, which was very important to the family. Not only was Gimbel where she was most comfortable, but being at home gave the family a chance to spend more time together, especially in the kitchen.

“Mealtime was always important to our family, so it was great to be in the kitchen together making meals,” Davis said. “We were able to create some great memories toward the end of her life … preparing meals together and sitting down as a family.”

Help more families cherish precious time together. As you continue to memorialize your own lost loved ones, please consider supporting Sanford Bismarck Hospice. Your gift will help bring peace and comfort to so many.
