Meet Sierra

“Our daughter, Sierra, who is now nine years old, suffered asphyxia during birth resulting in severe brain damage.  Sierra requires 24-hour skilled nursing care.  After unsuccessfully trying to secure nursing support in our home for Sierra, we turned to St. Margaret’s Center, where she was admitted at 7½ months of age.”

“Sierra receives the intensive support she requires at St. Margaret’s Center.  She also receives therapies, and participates in comforting activities.  Beyond the excellent care she receives, she is part of an extended family there.  When we are not with her, we know she still receives love from the staff—her extended family.  We thank God every day for the loving care Sierra receives at St. Margaret’s Center!”
