Our mom received the highest quality care. We knew she was safe and happy when her companion and her PSW were there. Staff genuinely cared about our mom's welfare and interacted with her so well that she was always cheerful and laughing during their visits. Staff were caring and always communicating with the family. On our mom's birthday, her companion made her day extra special for her. She helped mom pick out a lovely sweater and earrings. She spent lunch time with our mom and they ate outside on the patio and enjoyed sunshine and the fresh air. Later on friends dropped by to visit mom and her companion made them all tea. It was a happy and very special day for mom thanks to the thoughtful details added into her day by her Right at Home companion. Wonderful staff at all levels who made mom feel very comfortable and gave us (her children) some much needed peace of mind!
