"I am writing to express our gratitude for the wonderful care you gave my mom throughout the last few years of her life. As her daughter, living 2500 miles away was often stressful; but knowing that she was respected and treated so well by the caring individuals at Laurel Heights made the distance a little less of an issue. When we were visiting with her, we witnessed first hand such loving care, and we cannot express our gratitude enough!"
"There are no words to express how grateful I am for the loving care you and your staff gave to my mom during her long stay with you! You and your staff are amazing and loved and cared for me as well. Thank you is not enough!"
"Thank you all so very much for the great care that was given to our mother while she was a resident there. She loved all of you very much."
"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful care your facility gave my mother while she was a resident. It is never easy on a family to place someone who is dear to them in a nursing home, but when you see your loved one cared for in a way that allows them to retain their dignity it makes it easier to accept. I was so impressed with the cleanliness of your facility, the excellent nursing care, and the positive and caring attitudes of all the staff. Most importantly, my mom was happy at Laurel Heights. She had only kind and positive remarks about the staff and thought of each of you as family. Thank you for providing a supportive and positive atmosphere for her. There were things I could not personally provide for my mother and I am eternally grateful to everyone who touched her life. She was able to have the best quality of life possible considering her deteriorating condition. Laurel Heights is extremely fortunate to have such a supportive, competent and compassionate staff."
