to Say About Living at Arlington Place!

I just wanted to send you a note to thank you so very much for the printed collage for each of us and the book for Mom and Dad. We are enjoying the collages in our homes, and Mom and Dad have had so much fun reliving their very special anniversary day and sharing it with others. It was an extraordinarily thoughtful thing to do for them and for us. We appreciate very much the care the Mom (and Dad) are receiving at Arlington Place. They have found a new home and a new family with the people that live there and serve them. It is especially gratifying to us as their children to have the daily care for them taken care of so that we can enjoy each other again in ways that we have not been able to do for some time. Arlington Place and all the people that work there and live there are very special to all of us.

The staff of Arlington Place, thank you for allowing me to spend several days with you in one of your rooms while I was visiting my sister. I loved how you decorated “my room” for me and made me feel right at home. It looked amazing. I love your community and am so happy my sister lives there! Your staff does a wonderful job accommodating me and taking care of the residents. The food and care I received was excellent. I looking forward to staying again the next time I visit my sister. Thanks for all you do.

I moved into Arlington Place in 2002 to recover from a stroke. I needed physical therapy three times a week and they would transport me to the hospital. After a month, I experienced a colon hemorrhage which required surgery and a three week hospitalization. I had not intended to remain here, but I realized if I had been alone at home, I may not have survived.

I am so happy with my apartment. I like the interaction with others, but I can have my privacy, too. We feel like a big family here.

The staff is very caring and prompt with services. I enjoy doing things to help them out like stocking creamers, sugars and jellies and delivering newspapers. In the past I also sorted mail and called bingo.

There is always plenty to do here for activities and the residents are always out and about. The staff and residents are very friendly.

What I like most, is that there is 24 hour care. There is an aide for everything. I don’t have to cook, clean, do my laundry, and it’s great! If you want great care, great food and great people, then Arlington Place is the place to be!

I’m so glad that the family chose this community for my in-laws. It’s been wonderful. The staff is caring and attentive. My in-laws wanted to stay close to family and friends. They still are driving but if they can’t the community will take them to doctor appointments or the grocery store. The food is great, 3 meals a day with lots of variety. The activities are good like exercise classes, singing and outings for lunch. The courtyard is nicely landscaped and has a walking trail in the back. I would recommend this to anyone.

I consider Arlington Place home because I feel safe, I’m well fed and I have a variety of entertainment that is offered to me. I feel all the staff at Arlington Place are exceptional. I truly appreciate all of the care I receive from each of them.
