Dear Summerhill Staff: This letter is intended to be shared with the entire staff at Summerhill Assisted Living.
I have never been touched by such a wonderful group of people. Since my mother’s passing, I have felt compelled to reach out and express my deepest, most sincere appreciation and gratitude for the amazing care that my mother received while at your facility. Each and every one of you helped our family in one way or another. From the Administrative Staff to the entire staff of nurses, custodial staff, housekeeping staff, kitchen staff, office personnel, activities director, chaplain, and the wonderful volunteers, and the resident’s themselves, I send to you a warm and heartfelt thank you.
On December 8th, my mom (Alene McLean) left us which also happened to be her 89th birthday. When she first arrived at Summerhill we were unsure how much time we would have left with her. It was apparent right away that Summerhill was a place that not only provided the care my mother needed but also a place where she was considered family. During her 16 months at Summerhill she adjusted well to her surroundings (which can be difficult for someone with her condition) and every time I would visit I could see she was happy.When your mother or loved one is diagnosed with Dementia you walk in never quite knowing what to expect, and then the day comes when she is not sure of whom you are. The staff in Meadows II was so helpful in getting me through those tough times. I would leave after my visit and cry off and on during my 2-hour ride home. But it didn’t take me to many visits to realize that she was being cared for with love and kindness and for that, I am truly grateful.
I will my time there at Summerhill. I always felt so welcomed when I arrived by everyone. I commend you all for the work that you do daily. Sending many thanks and a hug to each and every one of you.
Peace, Health and Happiness to you all in the New Year!
