After being born eight weeks early, Bryce and Brody Challender spent 33 days and nights in AtlantiCare’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
“It was difficult to leave them overnight because we wanted to be with them,” their mother Brook says. “But we were leaving them in the most loving, capable, protective hands.
The AtlantiCare NICU team saved our babies’ lives.”
Jackie Melville recently placed her husband in the care of AtlantiCare Hospice.
She and daughter Yolanda agree that while you can never be truly prepared for the loss of a loved one, having a knowledgeable and caring end-of-life team can provide a sense of peace.
“You can’t understand the true definition of compassion,” says Jackie, “until you’ve experienced AtlantiCare Hospice.”
