Testimonials

Thank you to all for providing (her) with such a warm and caring environment.” - The H. Family

“Your dedication, teamwork, humour, patience, and gentleness move me always. You keep my mother happy and well with all the other people on the West Wing…We could not be happier with the care my mother receives on a daily basis from everyone there. A big hug to you all…” - Shirley-Ann

“My husband has been there since the end of Oct/03 and I have been so impressed with the kind and caring attitude everyone possesses. I realize what a difficult task caring for dementia patients is and I am constantly astonished with how they call each one by name and touch them in passing.” - Patricia
