“In our past and present caregiving experiences with other facilities, big and small, Heather Glen rates at the top of our lists. What your facility may lack in size and fancy interior design compared to others, you make up for it in the more important aspects of caregiving. There are always people mingling, activities going on, rooms are open (giving it a homey feel), and staff are friendly and accommodating most of the time. You do an excellent job in keeping us up to date with current affairs, as well as contacting us when there is something regarding Vickie’s care. I send this ‘Thank You’ not only from David and I, but from Vickie as well, since she has trouble communicating from her tablet now. Kudos to you and your staff!”

“It’s times like this that I wish I was better with words, because I can’t express enough what a great experience having my mom at Heather Glen was. I had to put my mom in assisted living for a few months, and found Heather Glen. I went for a tour and was very pleased with both the facility and the staff. I had never done anything like this, but I wanted the best experience for my mom. Heather Glen was a perfect fit! Once I got my mom moved in, I visited pretty regularly and got to meet a lot of the staff and residents. I have to say I looked forward to seeing some of the residents, I felt like I instantly had several new grandmas, such great folks. During my mom’s stay, the staff was very communicative about letting me know what was going on. This really put my mind at ease. I also had the opportunity to eat at Heather Glen several times and the food was great! I remember one of the first evenings that I was visiting and my mom didn’t want her soup, so I gave it a try. It was roasted red pepper soup, one of my favorites. I hate to turn this in to a restaurant review, but I was very pleasantly surprised each meal I had there. When it came time to take my mom back home, there were tears all around. Many of the staff gave her a hug and shed a tear, and when I told them how much I appreciated them, I got a little teary eyed, too. I think this really let me know that these people aren’t just doing their job, it showed that they genuinely care, and that’s really what it’s all about right?”
