A recent letter to The Elms:
Dear Guy, Leslie and The Elms Staff,
Our family must thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the quality of care you all are giving to our mother, Libby Falcone.
Every person on staff has gone above and beyond to monitor and accommodate her needs. We witness her being treated with patience and kindness always. Janice, Tim, Karen, Wanda, Betty, Jeff and of course Joan have shown sincere concern for her during her recent health issues. We don’t know their names, but we do know that the night staff has intervened several times to help her. We are so grateful for the level of service and care our mother gets.
All this loving care by so many good people in so many different capacities underscores for us how special The Elms is for our mother and for our family.
We are convinced that our mother’s quality of life would never be as good in any other setting. We could never replicate this quality of life at home for our mother. She has the best of everything: The Elms and its entire staff are the best!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Madeline Previti and Al Falcone
