“My friends, Anne and Bill, were fortunate to stay at Arcadia Gardens Retirement Hotel when it was time for them to live in an assisted living facility.
I had always prayed for them to have good care. They had always wanted to be independent. After Anne was in a car accident, they had no choice. I was their POA.
Anne had been like my mother for 47 years. I was very worried. Julie, the owner, and Pat, the manager, were always very supportive to me.
I was worried about money. They always reassured me. It was like being part of a family. Very kind.
Anne and Bill had to be together. Anne had been Bill’s caretaker. They were placed in a lovely room; it was like a studio apartment. We brought pictures from their home to hang on the walls, lots of family pictures. It was always very clean. The staff was always friendly and welcoming.
Anne loved to read and the staff brought her books from the library. She enjoyed having her hair done in the beauty salon downstairs. It would lift her spirits. Bill enjoyed joking with the staff.
They both needed hospice care. Every one worked together to make sure their time left on earth was pleasant. And, I could bring my dog to visit. She got lots of attention from the residents there.
Thank you Julie for Arcadia Gardens!”
