I lived in the country and have been isolated most of my life. Living at Traditions has been a whole new way of life for me. Living and learning to be close to people every day wasn't easy at first. However, meeting people and making new friends has been a rewarding experience and I have grown from it. I'm happy to be here.
My husband lives at Traditions. The community is nice, neat and always clean. The staff have all been kind, helpful and thoughtful. I'm confident that he is being cared for with grace and dignity.
I just wanted everyone to know how I feel about Traditions. I couldn't believe how pleasant and courteous everyone was when me and my husband first moved in! I thought, "Oh Well, it will change after we get settled in" BUT it is still the same, no fussing, no cussing, no screaming at each other...just every day family living! The food is good, the premises are kept exceptionally clean and our laundry done weekly or more often if needed and it is always folded or hung and then replaced in our rooms the same day it is laundered.
Each resident receives the same quality of care. Our medicines are administered on a daily basis by the staff. There is a variety of activities always offered for whomever wants to participate.
My heartfelt thanks to you and the staff for providing this "Home Away From Home."
In April 2011 we made the decision to move my Daddy to Traditions after a hospital stay. He was hesitant to leave his home of 65 years and we were concerned about the transition, but the staff at Traditions made it a great experience and soon he realized he had moved somewhere wonderful. He now calls Traditions his home and is so thankful for such a beautiful place to live with people who take such good care of him. He never likes being away from his new home for very long, always anxious to get back. Why wouldn't he, it is such a great and fun place! Whenever there is something to celebrate, there's an event for residents and family members - and they do it right! We always have so much fun meeting and visiting with the other residents and their families! Traditions is truly a blessing to my family because we never have to worry about whether our Daddy is eating right and getting the care he so deserves. There is no doubt that he is being treated like a King living in a castle!
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you and your staff and all that you have done for my mom, Shirley Holt. Words cannot express the relief and peace of mind I have felt since my mom moved in. I am truly sorry she is leaving and wishes wholeheartedly that she was staying. She is going to greatly miss you and your staff she feels a really special bond with staff members that she considers a part of her family. I hope that should she need to return you will have the availability to welcome her back. I recognize the tremendous improvement in her demeanor and attitude and know that your staff are responsible for that change.
On Friday I am having a dessert tray delivered from Feast as my very small way of saying thanks. Please know that you and your staff are truly making a difference in the lives of your residents and improving their quality of life.
I am so glad that I made the choice of Traditions for my mother’s temporary home. Let all the staff know that I appreciate their efforts and that I thank God for their kindness and dedication!
