Yes, Raul was wonderful greeting us an making sure everything was safe as all of dad's things were taken from his apartment yesterday. We are picking up the grandfather clock today from the garage and Raul is aware.
I want to thank you for everything during dad's three years at the Elms. We feel very fortunate to have found such a great home for him during his last 3 years of an amazing life. You are very lucky to have the outstanding staff that you have. My sincerst thanks especially to Kathleen, Osi, Magda, and Ismary. Dad would not have survived without your the love, care and fun these remarkable caregivers gave to and shared with him.
I'm sure I won't be seeing any of you in person, but I send my sincere thanks and appreciation.

Kathleen...what you give to Mom and all the other residents is something extremely extraordinary, and our Family is beyond grateful to you, Scott and every single person working at the Elms who keep our loved ones safe, content and made to feel as if they are loved and respected. There's something about this Residence that makes everyone who enters the doors feel at home. The best decision of our lives was having our mother move to The Elms, and I'm telling the truth when I say that you're all like our Family. Just stay safe and healthy, because as we worry about Mommy, (photo above) we worry about you all as well.
With love and respect,
Ellie and Marty (Bessie's, family)

Gladys (photo above) received wonderful care! We are so grateful for the caring staff!
All of the employees in The Grove on the 2nd floor and Kathleen who remembers everyone.
Scott for helping with the financial side so Gladys could stay there.
The care Gladys received. We are eternally grateful!
We appreciated that when Gladys was declining, you had her "visit"The Grove to start. I think this made the change easier.

We were very grateful for the support you provided to our friend both financially and care wishes.
Maribel and her assistant were indispensable. I really value the way they went above and beyond to make sure she was safe. They will always have my gratitude for their partnership. I am also very grateful for the help that June Wider provided when we were trying to arrange for her placement. Overall a very caring team who made it all work.
My friend's situation was special, and we will always be grateful for the financial support of the Elms, Thank you Scott.
To All Staff,
Thank you for all you are doing to take care of Mary and all the residents.
We see the protocols, visits and smiles your are sharing during this difficult time.
In gratitude and appreciation,
Diana and Kevin Dolezal

For the "Angels" at The Elms who made over a week and a half in quarantine not only uniquely possible but who always greeted me with a smile on their faces and with out complaints. I never hear anyone groan about having to clean the same room 3 or 4 times within an hour or two, or having to take the extra time and steps to deliver food to the rooms. Food, I may add, which was always presented with attention to looking attractive and within reason, just what I wanted.
If any residents or family wondered if our staff could handle a major flu attack, wonder no more. We all need to thank the "Elms Angels" for this care and attention to preventing further outbreaks.
