This is just a short note to convey our heartfelt thanks for the wonderful care you have provided Mom these past 3+ years.  We were saddened as her dementia progressed and it became all too obvious that she could no longer care for herself in her home of over 40 years.  While the decision to place a parent is difficult, we were happy as we observed first hand the compassionate and respectful care given to Mom and all residents.  During the first few months, Mom had her difficulties in adjusting to her new surroundings, but with time she responded well to the bright and cheerful surroundings, the yummy food (she gained 20 pounds over the first year), and the programmed events provided to her and other residents for life enrichment.  The dedication of the administrators and care staff in attending to her needs and the kindness and respect given to her has been exemplary.  And, when she has needed medical care, the care staff and outside medical personnel quickly provided 1st class care.  We sleep easier each night knowing that she is well taken care of, and that she is being treated with love, great patience and respect.   Thank you again for showing her love and taking care of her on her journey.
