“You and the entire administrative team and the wonderful Gardens staff gave to my mom and to us a gift of warmth, caring, compassion and sense of home for her that was priceless. We knew she was cared for and she knew she belonged there, which made her comfortable and allowed her to be happier than she has been in a long time. Your fail-free, compassionate approach that related to each and every resident as an individual and encourages relationships to develop between residents is as close to ideal as I can imagine.
