It’s a life changing decision to move from your personal home to Assisted Living. It can be accompanied with fear and uncertainty. But transitioning to The Abbington has been a magnificent experience for my mother. She was greeted with gorgeous surroundings and accommodations, however, the heart of The Abbington is the phenomenal personnel they employ. Whether its her personal caregiver, the activities director, the housekeeper, the receptionist, the dining staff or the maintenance staff, each employee treats my mother as if their own. I never have a worry about her wants because they have already anticipated them and put into action what she needs. Mother is treated with great dignity, kindness, and compassion. Mother is home at The Abbington.
I would like to thank everyone from Abbington Manor for the kind and tender treatment that was given to my mother during the last partof her life. Every person that I worked with was wonderful. I would especially like to thank Meagan and her team for their constant support. Tina was also especially helpful to me. I am very grateful to the young man who was with my mother when she passed. It gives me comfort to know that she was not alone.
Thank you and your staff so very much for the love and support you gave my mother. She had made, they had shared, then they were gone, so many good friends, but you as the staff were there for her always. I know, and you know, she was not always the easiest person to work with, but she was wonderful never the less. Her last couple of months were really hard, but you were always there to help when needed. You will be blessed for what you do to comfort those in need.
Thanks for all you do! It’s nice to see dad so happy and healthy. He hasn’t been this healthy in about two years. I love that he is checked on often and not left out of the activities if he forgets. You have even made him a special card with meal times so he won’t forget those. It makes my heart happy and I know he’s safe and taken care of.
What a fabulous place for our Mom to be. It was an easy move in, everyone has been sweet, kind and caring. There’s many social activites to keep Mom from being bored. The staff is very personable, and the dining is like being at a restaurant. They make the meals so fun and inviting. Abbington is clean and decorated nicely. I’m happy Mom call the place home!!
Dear Everyone associated with Abbington,
There are somethings in life that money cannot buy, such as love, friendship, genuine respectful treatment, and so on. The Family of Lila thanks you that we “got our money’s worth” and we received a fullness of the things of your hearts and souls, i.e. the things money cannot buy. That has made all the difference. That has made the service genuine. It takes the loneliness out of living in a care center because the other residents and those providing service and care feel real love and real friendship; a real sense of family. They mourn your passing. You cannot buy those things with money. You are among the best of the best people on this earth “and the angels in Heaven”. May you each be blessed for the regular daily habit of kindness shown to Lila and to one another. We love and adore you for it. Thank you! Lila’s Family.
Placing Eileen in a home was the most complicated decision our family has ever had to make. After a few weeks of being place in the facility, we came to the conclusion that we had placed her with compassionate, caring individuals. Did we make the right choice? Yes, we did. We miss Eileen so much (We have actually missed her the last five years due to her dementia.) She had always been a big part of our lives. We were so lucky to have found all of you! She grew to love all of you who took care of her. She may not have shown it, but she did love each and every one of you. You were all her family, too. Our family thanks all of you for helping her through all those endless days of attitude problems and struggles. Helping her take a bath, get dressed, eat, and just care for herself. We are so grateful for the welcoming touch of the hugs, giving her a smile, and extra cookie, just letting her know you care. Thank you, Sarah, for being there for her in her last moments. We did not want her to be alone. This was a struggle for our family to let her go. I know she is happy again. Getting to see her daughter, Jolene, and husband, Ren. We love and appreciate all of you. Your kindness has not gone unnoticed. I will miss my calls each day checking on her, and talking to all of you. You all put sunshine into her life. Your thoughtfulness will long be remembered. Thank you for your strength and support given to our family. Love to all of you extraordinary women!!
I appreciate the care you gave my mom…she was treated with respect and kindness. I know she was happy there.
