What our Residents are Saying

“I was talking to my Mom today at about 3:25 p.m. and all of a sudden she had to run because she remembered they had the bean bag toss at 3:30 p.m. So she had to hang up and put her lipstick on! Can you believe it?! Music to my ears! Six months ago, if I told her to go play a game of bean bag toss, she would have laughed and said ‘Not a chance!' Your staff sure knows what they're doing and they are doing it very well.”

– Sheila

“Perhaps in your profession you become familiar with the sad progression of dementia and the ultimate necessary outcomes for a married couple. And perhaps you have ‘seen it all.' But you and your group's compassion, tenderness, humour, professionalism and love made this traumatic first-time for my parents and our family so much more bearable.”

– Peter

“I just wanted to take a few moments to acknowledge the phenomenal job that your staff is doing in the provision of care for a couple of your residents in particular. The superlative level of care provided by your facility staff, both prior to and during the shift nursing staff's visits, was evident in the skin conditions of these two residents. The devotion and fondness that your staff shows for these two gentlemen was also apparent during each of our frequent shifts to turn and reposition them and provide personal care.”

– Marilyn, RN, CCM

“Thank you so much for all that you do for my dad. You take such wonderful care of him; we so greatly appreciate all your kindness and support.”

– Deb & Family
