Each time I visited I was so blessed 01.04.2018
Dear AltaVita Family,
Thank you so much for your loving care of my mother through the many years she was part of your family. Each time I visited I was so blessed by each of your care takers, sharing sweet connections they had with my Mom, so clearly showing that she was a friend, and in many cases, like a Mom to each of you. Living across the country from my Mom, I really appreciated the weekly email sharings of what she had done, how she was doing and sending special photos; it meant a lot. I understand there were difficult times, where taking care of my mother took significant patience and understanding. Thank you all for navigating the moments when she became agitated, cleaning up messes… doing those things that had to be done.
The on-going activities you arranged, the singing, mini-concerts, pet visits, worship, ice cream parties, art activities, bingo, staff recognition and so on, were such a joy to Mom. One of the special moments she and I shared in the month prior to her death was “Jamming with Jim”, who took special requests, shared jokes and experience, really connecting with everyone. We had a blast singing, often out of tune, missing words, laughing and having such a great time.
Unfortunately in this letter, I can’t truly convey the appreciation I have for all that you have done. You have all been such a blessing to my Mom and our family.
Sincerely, Matt T.
