"I appreciate the fact that family members are invited to all the activities. There is always something fun going on."


"My father was 79 years old, when it became apparent that we needed more help than we could give to him. I don't know how I would have handled the issues that my father brought to our family, had it not been for long term care. They were my support when I needed them.

It was so comforting to me to know that my father was in a place where he was protected, well cared for, loved - and especially safe. I knew he was in good hands. He was happy. He told me every single day, I'm a lucky man. I was definitely more than overjoyed to have him in such a home-like environment and provided with many, many activities to give him quality of life."


"I have seen a marked improvement in my mother since coming here. The Alzheimer's Unit is helpful because of the regimentation -- the schedule -- the residents feel comfortable having a routine and sense of order during their day."


"My daughter has Alzheimer's. Even when this breaks my heart, I am relieved that I have found the best place for her. The kindest place. The food is excellent, the people are wonderful. My heart is not broken because she is in this home. It's broken because of her illness.

I don't know what I would do without this facility. I just don't know how I would handle it. It's very emotional and stressful. I never realized how sophisticated the services are - the whole place is not what I expected. They make everyone feel at home."


"My father was at the facility and my mom has been there now eight months. I've been working there for over eighteen years and it's a whole different type of thing now. We have dialysis in my facility, which is very good and we have a lot of rehab. We have residents who come in just for rehab and then go home. Years ago, we couldn't do that. We work together as a team.

It's very comforting to me that my mother is being taken care of 24 hours a day. I don't have to worry that she is by herself."


"My mother loves going to the beauty parlor to have her hair done. She also enjoys having her nails painted. I'm happy that she is still able to enjoy these things."


"We enjoy having the opportunity to go out in the facility's bus and have a good time with our grandfather beyond the facility's four walls."



"The facility social services director and her group help us with anything and everything. You know that there is someone you can depend on to handle a problem."


"The nurses' aides are wonderful at this facility . . . they are angels."


"The staff is better able to deal with the residents because they are less emotionally-invested. They are able to be empathetic, yet professional."


"Volunteering for activities allows me to feel closer to my mom while having a good time with the residents."


"I can truly attest that it feels like a home at this facility - the Alzheimer's Unit becomes like one large extended family."
