Every time I come to see Mom, I feel some apprehension and often cry on the way home. She is a shell, in many ways, of what she used to be. I pray, just bless our time together - and he does.
Today as I was leaving these leaves caught my eye. They had once been something that people would seek out in the fall to appreciate their beauty. They've been blown down in the wind and have disintegrated to a shell. Look, though, now they are intact - all of the veins of life still perfect. I asked a couple of people what they saw in them. "A rotten leaf." To me they are so beautiful in their "earthly imperfection." This to me was one of the many reminders I'm given when things are overwhelming.
Mom is intact and beautiful. Every time I watch you be with her I see it. I am so thankful that you are the one who can look at her as the woman she always was, not a shell, but beautiful as those adornments of youth have faded, sometimes more & more every day.
I love you for it!
Dear Julie, Sue, Nancy and all the Inver Glen staff,
We wanted to thank you for welcoming and embracing our mom Kate Cognetta during the last six months as she settled into her new home. Those of you who had a chance to get to know her will remember her as an amazing lady. Full of life, love, compassion, conversation and a great sense of humor! The last six months were truly the happiest she's had in many, many years and for that we are very grateful and thank you all! She always raved about Inver Glen's amazingly loving and caring staff!
With love and thanks always.
Thank you for the patient care you and all the staff of Inver Glen gave to our father. You are all a blessing!– Greg J.
The best part of our experience was the staff.
I hope you know how comforting it was when we all walked away and knew they were cared for. The gals in the Memory Unit do their work like they love the residents. That is something that cannot be taught, it comes from within their hearts - The nursing staff, housekeeping and maintenance & kitchen also are all outstanding also.
Thanks for the good experience!
Your team of staff were great. Their professionalism, caring and expertise made us feel confident and more at ease.– Phyllis K. Family
If you ever have a family who's looking for a reference, please direct them my way. I'd be happy to give Inver Glen 2 thumbs and 10 toes up!– Rosie
To all the staff and hospice care givers,
Sammi & Gail want to thank you all for your kind hearts. You all showed us so much compassion. You made us feel supported and cared about while we visited our loved one, Mary Andrejka.
A big hug to you all.
Thanks so much for all your help so far with our move of Mom.– Carolyn
Every member of staff deserves a pat on the shoulder. You have all done a praise worthy job of keeping this facility together and always being there for our residents! I am happy to say I am a proud employee of Inver Glen!– An Appreciative Employee
The building is so beautiful, but the people are what make it special. Every one of you bring your talent and caring to work very day. You made us feel like family. My dad and mom loved you and I still do. You took our lemons and made lemonade.– Karen S.
It has been the best place to handle the hardest thing I have ever done. You and your staff are the best! Your patience has been appreciated. Keep doing what you do!
