Gifts of Gratitude – The Morrisons

Frank Morrison decided to make a donation in honor of his caregiver Jill, a registered nurse with Mass General Brigham Home Care. When he told his wife Kathie, she responded with, “I’ll match that!” Because, in fact, Frank and Kathie are both Jill’s patients.  

The Mass General Brigham Home Care approach made it possible for Frank and Kathie to stay together in their home and build a trusted bond with their shared care provider. 

When she heard about the Morrisons’ gifts, Jill was touched. “I believe that through the one-on-one interactions and teaching that are part of home care, I can really impact someone’s life over time,” Jill said. “I’m so glad I could be there for Frank and Kathie.”
