I am working with Priority/Camellia in Knoxville, TN. I’m a nurse with the Department of Children’s Services. We had a child who was at-risk of coming into state custody due to his Mother having personal issues.
Camellia was the only agency I could find that would even consider going into the home environment. Not only did they go in the home, they provided care the first day on “good faith” before the authorization was given. They were providing 24/7 PDN to this child that had 6–9 months to live.
He was suffering from a terminal as well as other illnesses. I cannot tell you enough of what Shelia and Stacy have done for this child, allowing him his final wish — to die at home with his mother. Without your agency, this child would have been placed in a nursing home or in a foster home with strangers while he passed away. Thanks so much for all the help and allowing this child to remain in his home. Shelia and Stacy are ABSOLUTE ANGELS!!! I cannot say enough about them and about how they have been the key to allowing this child his final wish.

I have put off writing this because I am not sure I can adequately convey my sincere thanks and gratitude for your services that were way and beyond the ordinary.
Your agency has been a lifesaver to us, and the kindness and professionalism each of you exhibit is without a doubt, beyond compare.
