Thank you for helping Mom maintain her dignity. Thank you for the nourishing meals and her clean room. Thank you for the bed baths and for keeping her clean and fresh, for the special attention to her hair, for adding a necklace to her wardrobe in celebration of a special occasion, for your loving words and gestures, and for your patience. Thank you for praying with her and for her and for offering comfort. Sandy Koerber Felt.
You have cared for several loved ones in our family over the last 20 years. You have assured their comfort, offering the utmost compassion and kindness. Two grandparents, two close family friends and one parent have all received your dedicated care. There is so much involved in caring for a resident; financial, administrative, medical, personal needs, spiritual needs and food. I’m sure I’m missing many more. This is why your dedication is invaluable.

*Our Mom loved living at Mother of Good Counsel Home. It was a very loving, caring environment, and she so enjoyed the activities: the potluck dinners, the therapy, and the friendships she made during the three years she lived there.
The Bucher Family
Words cannot express the loving, caring you expressed to both Mom and Dad. I have such joy and peace in my heart when I think of my parents’ last days spent among your loving care. You and Mother of Good Counsel Home are simply AMAZING!
Michelle, Mark and Dawson Haley
I hope you know how deeply I respect and appreciate the Sisters and staff at Mother of Good Counsel Home. The love, compassion and care my mother received during the past six years was extraordinary – as was the support you provided to us all during my mother’s transition.
Monica, daughter of Rosemary Allen
*Mom was so happy at Mother of Good Counsel Home. She would tell us often how lucky she felt to live there and to receive the type of care she was getting. She loved being able to attend daily Mass, see the sisters often and be surrounded by so much love, care and concern. We felt blessed and at ease knowing she was in the best of places and that she was well taken care of.
The Patton Family
We the family of Maggie McGee, want to personally thank the Sisters and the staff at Mother of Good Counsel Home for the compassionate, physical, emotional and spiritual care that was provided for Maggie during the final year of her life. We appreciate the great patience and love that the staff demonstrated when times were difficult for her. While Maggie was a devoted Southern Baptist who studied her Bible daily, she had great confidence in the loving, spiritual care of this Catholic facility and looked forward each evening to receiving a blessing.

Your devoted care of my mother was professional, human, respectful and tender. You were a light in a time that could have been dark.
I am a social worker for the state of Missouri. I am responsible for providing oversight and assuring the well-being … many of whom are elderly and have physical disabilities or other significant health problems. I spend hours each week in skilled nursing homes throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area… I can honestly say that I think the quality of care at Mother of Good Counsel Home is exemplary. The thing that pleases me the most about the Home is your commitment to tending to the emotional and spiritual needs of the people in your charge.

You all took such excellent care of my husband, Frank, and I’m most grateful. Knowing this allowed me to sleep at night.
Dolores & Family
Thank you so much for all your love, care, and support during my Dads stay at MOGC. You are all truly special and have made a difficult time more bearable. We love you all.
Loraine Sheahan and Family
On behalf of my entire family, I would like to thank all of you for the loving care my mom received at MOGC during her stay. We always felt comfort in knowing that she would be lovingly cared for when we weren’t present. She loved the activities, mass, and the rosary. She made many friends with residents and staff alike.
Mary, daughter of Edith Patton
Your efforts have allowed us to honor our mother, Phyllis. You have given us peace of mind and taken away our fears.
The Koerber Family
I remember the day when Marybeth and I first visited your home, and how excited we were to think Mom could live there.
