Teina, a housekeeper at Menno Place brings JOY throughout the year!
THANK YOU MENNO PLACE
Thank you so much for taking care of my mom in such a beautiful and loving way! You are angels in disguise, and please know how much we appreciate you! I wish you many blessings as you daily touch the lives of our family members. In doing so, you are touching our lives and caring for us too.
FROM A GRATEFUL CHILD
I am very grateful for all the people who make Menno such a wonderful place for my Mom. Menno Place is the best of any care homes I have seen. You do a wonderful job of caring for our loved ones and have a kind and wonderful staff.
THANKFUL FOR THE CARE MOM RECEIVED
We would like to thank you for the kindness and caring that you have shown to our Mother/ Grandmother during her time there. She has often referred to you as her ‘friends,’ and this is a reflection of the compassionate manner in which you have interacted with her. For this we are truly grateful!
YOU BECAME FRIENDS AND WE ARE GRATEFUL
So far my experience has been that the staff at Menno Home have been outstanding. Mum has energy, interest, and clarity of thought better than she has had in 10-15 years!
HAPPY THAT MOM IS DOING SO WELL!
My dad was there for 13 years. Of the many staff that dealt with him over the years he only complained about one. He was fiercely independent and she wanted to help too much.
FROM A LONG-TIME RESIDENT’S FAMILY
My father has recently passed away; I only wish to thank Menno Home and the wonderful caring staff who helped myself and my father live the last few years so gracefully. I have nothing but praise for the care he received.
THANKING YOU ALL FOR YOUR CARE
We will be ever grateful that mom ended her days with a staff that treated her as their own mother.
SHE WAS TREATED LIKE FAMILY
It always seemed as if our dear friend was not just a resident, but a member of a family that lived there. For her to see that she was noticed and welcomed, I know made her feel happy. Thank you again for all that you did for her, and please keep the joy and happiness that you all show every day. It did not go unnoticed.
JOY AND HAPPINESS IS EVIDENT
I just want to express my feelings about the staff at Menno Place…They’re out of this world. They’re unbelievable…I am floored by them. I thank you for having such a team, and for caring for residents the way you do. You’ve just got the best group there. You should be really proud of them.
You're the happiest person! This piano must be a really big deal! Sometimes we deliver a piano to a family and the kid whose getting it just plays games on their tablet. But you're pumped about this! I guess a lot of seniors will enjoy the music. So glad we could be a part of bringing the piano here! - Piano movers placing our brand new donated baby grand player piano in the Chapel ...
