Dear Cal, This is a thank you note for all you did personally for me during my stay at Guilford House. My fingers have improved to the point where I can write this letter of thanks for all the Guilford House and the entire staff did for me. As for the smoothies they were a wonderful thing to look forward to each day. I am walking and feel better each day. Thank you again. Sincerely, FB
Dear Cal, I want to thank you for the wonderful care Don received at the Guilford House. You, Patty and Richard were always warm, encouraging and kind. Every one of your staff, like you, seemed to go the extra mile. Don continues to slowly improve but misses his smoothies and your humor. In other words he was royally spoiled. We were lucky to move him to the Guilford House and will continue to recommend it without reservation. You put him on the road to recovery and kept a smile on his face. Thank you and thank the Guilford House. Sincerely, KB
Cal, Some people just make life better for everyone around them. That’s how you are. Your kind heart and generous soul have blessed so many people. Don’t ever forget how much you mean. I enjoyed my stay and thank you for the newspaper every day. Had many laughs and the best smoothie ever. Sincerely, EF
Dear Cal, I had a delightful visit with my daughter and Sara on Monday. Of course, we missed Joan, who had a doctor’s appointment. Many thanks for the delicious lunch you served us. It was great! You certainly do an excellent job at what you do. I can remember all the kindness shown to me when I was there and also the excellent care that was received. May god bless you, MC
Cal, Marie, Sandy, Lisa, Alice, Amy, Linda, and all of you who cared for my dad, LT, thank you so very much for all you did to get him through a very painful, difficult time. My dad is home now, back in his apartment in Massachusetts and making slow, steady gains. He still as good and bad days, but would not be alive if it weren’t for all of you.
The outstanding level of care, concern and patience that you all gave him made the difference in his survival and we shall be forever grateful. So many of you showed us what a special staff you are. It started at the top with you, Cal, who was for more than a care-giver. Your sense of humor and little visits made my dad feel like a friend not a patient. And Marie, you gave so much and your persistence is getting him help when the doctors showed no concern, probably saved his life. I can’t remember all the names of you who took care of him, but I will always remember the incredible job you did! PB
My mother spent almost a month at the Guilford House, recovering from heart surgery. During her entire experience there, she was treated with respect, dignity, warmth and, ultimately, affection, by virtually every member of the staff, from the wonderful owner, Cal, the manager Richard, the head nurse Sandy, and the entire nursing staff, and Lisa, the social worker. To say it was like staying at an upscale hotel is an understatement. The quality of care and concern was first rate, the room was lovely, and the atmosphere as pleasant as it could possibly be for a facility of this nature.
I would recommend it-without hesitation-to anyone in need of a rehabilitation facility. My mother came from NJ to stay there-to be near me-but also because of the Guilford House’s outstanding reputation, a reputation very well-deserved. The staff made her recovery so much more pleasant that I ever could have imagined. I am so grateful.
To all the wonderful staff who helped me to recuperate and made my stay enjoyable. There were so many beautiful names and faces. Keep up the good work and always surrounding it with kindness.
Sincerely, Pat D.
To Cal, Pat, and the entire staff of The Guilford House,
Seems like being nice just comes naturally to you! It is with great appreciation and gratitude that I thank you and your entire staff for the wonderful care, hospitality, and support you have given to me and my parents during this difficult time and transition.
Thank you, Deb C., Pappy & Carmen
Your warmth and kindness meant so much. You added so much to my stay at The Guilford House. You are truly a great and loving example to your employees and you have a “big heart.” May God continue to bless you! Mom says “hello” and tells the M&M story the root beer float to everyone.
Continue your fine work, Patty & Anna D.
The Guilford House was so much more than what we expected for a rehabilitation center. The food was like going to a high class restaurant. Even though everything was done for all the patients, allowing the spouse to share the meal with them was in mind. Cal your personality was so much appreciated. You made everyone feel so close to home as possible under the circumstances. The staff was great right from the top, down to the aids who played the most important part in making the patients comfortable. The Guilford House will be highly recommended by us to anyone who may find themselves in the situation where they need a facility such as yours. Thanks to The Guilford House for making a bad situation a little bit better.
Thank you once again, Bob & Connie H.
