The Schweingruber’s Experience

Don Schweingruber’s one wish was to remain home with his family through the remainder of his life. Don had been battling multiple myeloma for 15 years and began experiencing falls at home. His wife, Nancy, turned to Bridge inpatient hospice for help. She knew the wonderful reputation of the hospice nurses and facilities offered at Bridge inpatient hospice care in Findlay; however, due to limited space, Nancy was referred to Bridge hospice at Bluffton. Nancy described this referral as a blessing. Don’s wish would be fulfilled. Though Don was admitted into hospice, Nancy appreciated having her husband in their hometown of Bluffton. Don under Bridge’s care in Bluffton made it convenient for the family to visit rather than having to drive to Findlay. Family members were able to spend time with Don all hours of the day and night as they pleased. The staff was very loving and supportive to the family. ”The nurses not only took care of Don but took care of us,” Nancy said.
