Thank you from all the family for the wonderful care our Aunt has received over the many years she had been a resident at your facility. When she was in Assisted Living she absolutely loved living there, participating in all of the various activities, the interaction with the other residents and the staff. She also loved the food and all the outings she was taken on. When her health required her to move to Reflections, the family knew she was in a secure, safe environment and in capable hands.
We cannot thank you enough for the care and the love you gave her for all those years.
Please express our heartfelt thanks to the Van Dyk family and to your wonderful, wonderful staff.
