"Fortunate to have a safe and loving place”

“I stopped by only to find a Luau in progress! Staff was dressed with grass skirts and with flowers in their hair.

A native Hawaiian women with a beautiful voice was singing Hawaiian songs to the room full of the residents. With one song left, she noted, “Your staff does a wonderful job here. I have the opportunity to preform for many facilities like this one and I have never seen so much love from the staff to the residents.” She was moved so much by this that she struggled emotionally as she sang her last song.

I feel so very fortunate to have a safe and loving place for my Mom.”

"My sister, Susan, is one of your big fans and I can see why."

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for Alex’s leadership at Avamere at Sandy. We appreciate your email updates, but more than that your handling of the difficult situation we are all in, not to mention the ongoing fire problems. My sister, Susan (or Crunchita), is one of your big fans and I can see why. We are so thankful that you are in charge. Good luck as we move forward. “

"Kudos to Alex for organizing the evacuation of our residents."

"Far more than what we expected, very clean, great security and outgoing staff"

“Far more than what we expected, very clean, great security and outgoing staff, who have been more than willing to help. My aunt is one of those folks who seems to be unhappy all the time and still would like to be back in her old place, but always tells us that the people taking care of her treat her very well. She never complains about the food and has gained a good deal of weight, which was needed. The staff keeps us well informed of any problems or concerns and are more than helpful when we call into them. We live over 200 miles away and have to come in to get my aunt to doctor appointments and take care of other business for her every couple of weeks, she is always clean, dressed and ready for us on time and never a wait for someone to receive her when we return. We cannot say enough good about Susan, Alex, Deb, Amy and the other staff members at this facility. They are the best, far more than we hoped for.“

"They treat my father, Bud, as if he was their own relative"

“They treat my father, Bud, as if he was their own relative. He is not the politest person to them. They go above and beyond what anyone would expect them to do. I am totally grateful for each and everyone of them and thank them all for the job they do.”

Rick Hargitt

"You handled a crisis with extreme professionalism."

“I just wanted to thank everyone at Avamere at Sandy for the exceptional job you did during the evacuation process. I was informed every step of the way by your staff, and feel relieved that my mother, Katie, is at another Avamere community with residents and staff she is familiar with. Once again, you handled a crisis with extreme professionalism. Thank you again, I am praying for everyone who is affected by these devastating fires to be able to return home very soon. God Bless you.”
