I always had a close relationship with my Nana, growing up we were very close. As I became an adult and got so busy with school and then full time work and a family life of my own, I had less and less time for Nana. One day I turned around and she was elderly, and ill. It broke my heart. Nana went into hospital and then a seniors facility. About one year ago Nana moved to Countryside retirement. Finally I have my Nana back. When I drive out to visit her, she is happy, cheerful, and having fun again. We laugh and joke together just like old time. I can’t tell you how great it is to see her so vivacious and full of life again! This is how your seniors years should be lived out, in a clean, warm, countryside place you feel comfortable calling home. Thank you to all the staff who make my Nana feel like family, and have given us back our funny, crazy Nana!
Wow, Mom is excited!
I have to tell you, it took a bit, (as you may remember I first came out there last fall) to get Mom to even go out there and look at your Home. She really didn’t want to leave her friends, including staff, at her current retirement community.
The first visit she had there, she LOVED the deck, the whole ambiance of the outside of the Home, and then you came right out and immediately greeted her. She was so tickled.
Now she is really in love with the idea of moving out there, yes anxious and a bit scared, but truly invigorated.
We cannot thank you enough, we are all very excited for Mom to move into her new “home” and it is a home, not an industrial make shift long term care facility. We look forward to helping to plan a BBQ this summer, and hope to be able to have Mom’s birthday out there, of course we would invite all the residents if they so choose to participate.
I just got off the telephone with mom, she is so happy and so relaxed it is wonderful to hear. She’s absolutely in love with your wife thinks of her like a family member, says that she’s one of the nicest people she’s ever met and how lovely she is to everybody, she is a very special lady.
She is really impressed with the food, said she had a nice fresh salad for lunch with all kinds of greens in it. She’s thoroughly enjoying it out there. Whomever is on today, mom says she’s fantastic one of the best!
Thank you so very much,
Had another awesome visit with mum today at lunch, always a pleasure! We all love your place so much, and see the obvious difference in our mum!
