“Nurses are the heart of healthcare.”

– Donna Wilk Cardill

National Nurses Week is almost over!

But, before you get too emotional, there’s something you can do – show appreciation to the wonderful nurses, who have given you or your loved one their utmost at Delmar Nursing and Rehabilitation.

Showing appreciation feels great, both for you and for the person on the receiving end.

Take a moment and reflect on some meaningful moments. Whose image comes up for you? What would you want to tell them?

Here are 2 ways to show appreciation:


Letter writing is one of the oldest forms of conveying a message. And it is also one of the most powerful ones. A letter, or even a brief note, goes a long way and can be saved for even longer. So, your message can be heard again and again for many years to come.

If writing isn’t your thing, don’t worry; it’s the intention that matters. And that intention will flow through your sincere prose and reach your nurse’s heart.


Not everyone may be able to write, so a letter may not be a one-size-fits-all approach.

If you feel that you fit into this category, you can show appreciation verbally. Think of an ideal time to meet your nurse or nurses and plan the moment. Tell them you’d like to let them know how much you appreciate their service and specifically how it has impacted your life or that of your loved one. Pause a moment and let them internalize your message. Thank them and know that you may have just changed someone’s life.

How can you show appreciation for your favorite nurse?
