Continue your fine work, P & AD

Dear Cal,

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.

Cal, Richard, and Staff,

Thank you for everything you all did to make my gramma’s stay with you all the best she could have! She is still talking about the food, the therapist (especially Fallon) and everyone. I cannot express what it all means to me and our family. You are all truly angels from God. I can’t begin to thank you enough. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Many thanks, PD

Cal,  

You are amazing!  Thank you for every care and kindness you have shown me and all the other residents, too!  You made me feel welcome and at ease both in and out of isolation!  Your humor is great medicine! 

Many thanks, PD

Dear Cal,

Last June I spent a couple of weeks at your wonderful “resort” and want to thank you for the excellent care I received. 

Warmest regards, MW

My gratitude, Sister MC

Dear Cal,

Warm thanks for your gracious hospitality and delicious lunch [and lactaid ice cream] on 4/13 while I was visiting Sister M.  I was impressed with the Guilford House and with your philosophy of care and presence. People need that special attention when they are vulnerable, recovering from surgery, strokes or other illness.  May God bless all your endeavors.

 My gratitude, Sister MC

Sincerely, FR

Dear Workers at The Guilford House:

Because of all of you the Guilford House is an unbelievable, incredible place.  Starting at the top, the owners are on site daily and get to know all the patients by name and condition.  I think if they were asked, they would stand on their heads to make a patient happy.  Once when I wasn’t able to eat the wonderful meals provided, Cal asked what I might like to try.  I said “Maybe a poached egg”.  He went down to the kitchen right then to cook it.  Another time, I saw some root beer and mentioned it brought back memories of childhood.  A short time later Cal arrived with a root beer-float for me. The nurses were pleasant, sympathetic, efficient and knowledgeable.  The nurses’ aids, who have the constant care of the patients, were dedicated.  If anyone gets to Heaven it will be they. 

One night when I was in terrible pain, I actually prayed that Eileen would be my nurse.  I loved so many of them but can’t remember all their names.  There was “Precious” the girl with the beautiful hair, the girl with four children, Lynn, and all who helped me.  They are God’s angels for sure.  The cooks are outstanding.  The gourmet meals – and such a choice was works of art, not only delicious but artfully presented.  Bernadette, the hairdresser manipulated several wheel chairs in her small room, and magically beautifully fixed everyone’s hair.  The housekeeping crew kept the place spotless.  One lady who worked in my room daily, I called Patty Sunshine not Merry Sunshine, because she brightened the room with her happy disposition. The Therapy room was spacious with a nice view of the court yard.  My therapists, Teresa, Gayle and Ginny were outstanding!  Thank you all so very much. I’ll be back to see you when I get better. 

Sincerely, FR

Dear Cal,

Guilford House is the BEST! You all are in my thoughts a lot. 

Your humor and TLC meant more than I can say.  Thank you all!  Keep it up.

To Cal & Patty,

Words alone cannot express the depth of my gratitude for the care and concern shown to me and my family during my two week stay at Guilford House. My doctor said I had to be a “princess” for two weeks and you and your staff enabled me to rest and rehab in such a way that I was able to return to my home and my job. Although I have a long journey ahead, I will never forget the time I spent and the care I received from you and your entire staff.  Thank you. 

PSH

Sincerely, W.W.

Dear Cal:

Thanksgiving season – you are one of the persons I want to thank.  Thank you for the wonderful personal care I received from you and your staff at The Guilford House.  Your concern for my every need, and the needs of my visitors, was outstanding.  As a Pastor I called at the location thirty-two years ago.  You and your staff have done an unbelievable job.  Thank you and I will always recommend The Guilford House. 

Sincerely, W.W.

Sincerely, The Family of T.C.
