I simply want to thank your wonderful staff. My mother was taken to Lakeside today and is in ICU. Two different aides from Prairie View showed up today (on their own time) to check on my mothers well being. This is going above and beyond their job and they did it because of their big hearts and loving attitude toward those they care for. I doubt they understand how much this has meant to me and my mother. When I told her that they had been there, she smiled and said: "They are such sweethearts and I am lucky to have them care for me". AND I agree with her comment. ~Dee

I wish I could write out all of your names because I want everyone to know how much I appreciate the kindnesses you have shown me and the assistance you have given me.

Today is my 24th day here. Because of your help, I can now go home and try to get by on my own. I am grateful for your patience, your good humor and your pleasant ways, and for all the times you assisted me.

Thank you. Thank you.

Fondly, Mary Lickteig

There are no words to express how truly grateful we are for how you cared for our Dad with such love and respect over the past four years.

Although it wasn't the way he would have wished to spend his last few years, he knew, as did we, that there was no better place he could have been. Each of you are truly incredible, selfless people, and we are truly grateful for the love, kindness and care you gave our dad.

My sister and I would like to thank everyone for all the support, tender care, acts of kindnesses, hugs, kisses, prayers and all the many ways you blessed our mother while she was living at Brookestone.

We witnessed so many beautiful acts of caring while she was living there. It is a struggle to find the right words to express our gratitude. Mom has always been our treasure, and all of you treated her like she was your treasure too. How do we say think you for a gift like that?

Each of you treated Mom the way we wanted her treated with respect, kindness, dignity and with caring hands.

Our prayers were answered when we found Brookestone Village. God definitely blessed Mom and us through all of you!"

On behalf of my mother, I would like to thank you and the staff at Brookestone Village for the fantastic care given my mother during her two month stay. Brookestone Village is an impressive facility and my mother was very happy with the treatment that she received while she was there. She told me on numerous occasions that she couldn't believe how wonderful the staff was to her and that they treated her with such kindness, dignity, and gentleness. She loved the view from her window and stated that it made her feel so good.

We can't thank you enough for your kind and loving care during our Mom's recent illness. Your warmth and compassion were unsurpassed and we can't tell you how much comfort that brought to her family. Knowing she was in your capable hands when we weren't there was invaluable and we thank you for all you did to keep her comfortable and well-cared for. She truly enjoyed being at Brookestone Village and that is a testament to all of you.

Thank you for the dedicated and professional care my mother received while living at Brookestone Village. After entering Brookestone VIllage, she had a quality of life I never thought she would have again. She told me often how much she liked Brookestone Village, and how she appreciated the care she received and how much she hoped she would never have to move from Brookestone Village. I will be forever indebted to all of you who cared so lovingly for her.

You must be aware of the exceptional talents, quality of delivery, and attitude of the staff at Brookestone Village. In the last few months, I have had an occasion to be with these people and see their work. It is clear to me that each of the various staff members knows that they collectively deliver virtual life saving and quality of life service. It is all exceptional!

It is also obvious that every single person doing the various parts is aware that these contributions fit into a big picture of terrific care. In the case of my mother, they should each know that they have materially improved the quality of her life as well as saved it. For this, I am unable to express my gratitude.

We can't begin to thank you enough for the outstanding care your staff provided for our mother. There are too many staff members to thank individually, however many of them certainly went over and above the call of duty and for that we are eternally grateful. Our mother's quality of life was greatly enhanced by their compassion and care.

We so appreciated how each unique challenge was handled and how they always strived to make each day a beautiful one.

A well-earned thank you to your fabulous facility from my entire family. I must tell you that we have never experienced such outstanding care from your amazing staff, nor such a high demonstrated commitment to pro-active, holistic patient/resident and family centered care. We extoll your virtues on a community-wide basis, in hope that EVERY beloved parent would be a recipient of Brookestone Village’s wonderful HOME!

Every single day was a miracle that resulted in my mother's progression into almost complete ambulatory…well actually now she can walk better than she has in 10 years and is planning another knee replacement with post surgical rehab ONLY at Brookestone Village. We truly grew to love you all as part of our own family.

Please share this testimony of our experiences with your wonderful staff and please use us as a reference or touch point for anyone who is considering either residence or rehab at Brookestone Village.

[We] would like to thank Brookestone and staff members for your excellent service. The staff did a wonderful job of caring for my father. They went above and beyond their job duties to show my father respect and care. The staff also showed our family patience and understanding at this difficult time. They were always prompt and efficient whenever we called for assistance and maintained a good sense of humor when my dad teased them.

I will be sure and recommend your home to our friends and other family members.

My mom just left your facility and I just wanted to tell you that everything was so wonderful. I live in Colorado and we would be lucky to have a fourth of the services that you give. Everyone was so kind. Miekka (admissions planner) was something like a dream. Any questions I had or anything…it was like she must be picked from heaven. I've never met anyone so delightful. Kudos for everything you’re doing. Everyone was just outstanding. Thank you for taking good care of my mom and for running such a nice facility.

Mom was the 80th person to come live at Brookestone. She didn't want to leave her warm and loving home but she soon realized that her new warm and loving home was here.

Her favorite place to sit was by the staff door so she could watch you come and go. She beamed as each and every one of you greeted her by name.

We knew Mom would get wonderful care here but we didn’t know that caring came with so much love.

I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to the staff at Brookestone Village, especially all the special caregivers on Lakeview. Our mother was a resident and we couldn’t have asked for more loving care. No matter how often they were called they came and never complained about being too busy. They all seemed to care. I'd like to name everyone that took such good care of Mom, but I'm afraid I might forget someone. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

I would like to thank you and your staff for the care my mother received while a resident at Brookestone Village. It was her home for seven years. During that time some of the staff changed, but I think she was always treated with dignity. I am grateful for that.

I am especially grateful to the staff on Silver Maple. These care givers washed, dressed, and fed her when she was unable to do these things for herself. They became surrogate family members when neither my brother nor I could be there to give her the care she needed.

Please give my appreciation and best wishes to everyone. You all made it seem like "home" whenever I came to visit. I have fond memories of family get-togethers and birthday celebrations at Brookestone.

We want to thank you deeply for loving her the way you did and for being so gracious to us, her family. Although the days were often painful as we watched her decline, your comforting ways were like a balm to our weary and aching hearts. We couldn’t have asked for more. To say, "thank you," hardly seems enough, but we pray you'll understand the feelings and emotions that are in those words. The people at your facility really live out your motto of "Dignity in Life" and our family experienced it firsthand.

You have no idea how wonderful we felt with the reception [our mother] received—our first reaction was that she staff seemed so smiling, warm and friendly. It was a breath of fresh air after the dismal days we had just walked through. Everyone was attentive and helpful and we felt reassured to have her in such a safe place. Her room was beautiful, with a wonderful view of the lake, the ducks and the birds.

Our family would like to recognize the entire staff who cared for our mother over the last 1-1/2 years. Each and every member of the staff who cared for her was always very accommodating, friendly and detail-oriented. Our family often witnessed the staff comforting her with their kind words, and cared for her like she was one of their own. Our family often discussed how incredible the staff was at Brookestone Village and how it takes special people to do their job. We used words like "angels" and "saints" to describe them. We were so deeply moved by the staff members who took the time to say “goodbye” to our mother and those who cared for her even after she had passed. Our family feels so fortunate to have been a part of Brookestone Village. We have made so many friends with the staff and plan to visit the residents that we were so blessed to meet and get to know.

A few months ago when my brother and I were looking for a long-term care facility for Mom, we were fortunate to discover Brookestone Village. The care Mom received at Brookestone Village was excellent, and she was treated with dignity and kindness.

I know Mom wasn't afraid to let you know what she wanted and when she wanted it, but you were all so gracious and patient with her. We know Mom loved to push her little button to ask for something. She often told me that when she couldn't sleep at night, someone would come in and visit with her, and maybe bring her a danish.

Our family is thrilled that Mom's last few months of life were spent in a loving, caring place.

You are doing God's work, and you have the ability to make the residents' last few months happy and peaceful.

I would like to thank you and your staff for the care my mother received while a resident at Brookestone Village. It was her home for seven years. During that time some of the staff changed, but I think she was always treated with dignity. I am grateful for that.

I am especially grateful to the staff on Silver Maple. These care givers washed, dressed, and fed her when she was unable to do these things for herself. They became surrogate family members when neither my brother nor I could be there to give her the care she needed.

Please give my appreciation and best wishes to everyone. You all made it seem like "home" whenever I came to visit. I have fond memories of family get-togethers and birthday celebrations at Brookestone.

We want to thank you deeply for loving her the way you did and for being so gracious to us, her family. Although the days were often painful as we watched her decline, your comforting ways were like a balm to our weary and aching hearts. We couldn’t have asked for more. To say, "thank you," hardly seems enough, but we pray you'll understand the feelings and emotions that are in those words. The people at your facility really live out your motto of "Dignity in Life" and our family experienced it firsthand.

You have no idea how wonderful we felt with the reception [our mother] received—our first reaction was that she staff seemed so smiling, warm and friendly. It was a breath of fresh air after the dismal days we had just walked through. Everyone was attentive and helpful and we felt reassured to have her in such a safe place. Her room was beautiful, with a wonderful view of the lake, the ducks and the birds.

Our family would like to recognize the entire staff who cared for our mother over the last 1-1/2 years. Each and every member of the staff who cared for her was always very accommodating, friendly and detail-oriented. Our family often witnessed the staff comforting her with their kind words, and cared for her like she was one of their own. Our family often discussed how incredible the staff was at Brookestone Village and how it takes special people to do their job. We used words like "angels" and "saints" to describe them. We were so deeply moved by the staff members who took the time to say “goodbye” to our mother and those who cared for her even after she had passed. Our family feels so fortunate to have been a part of Brookestone Village. We have made so many friends with the staff and plan to visit the residents that we were so blessed to meet and get to know.

A few months ago when my brother and I were looking for a long-term care facility for Mom, we were fortunate to discover Brookestone Village. The care Mom received at Brookestone Village was excellent, and she was treated with dignity and kindness.

I know Mom wasn't afraid to let you know what she wanted and when she wanted it, but you were all so gracious and patient with her. We know Mom loved to push her little button to ask for something. She often told me that when she couldn't sleep at night, someone would come in and visit with her, and maybe bring her a danish.

Our family is thrilled that Mom's last few months of life were spent in a loving, caring place.

You are doing God's work, and you have the ability to make the residents' last few months happy and peaceful.

I simply want to thank your wonderful staff. My mother was taken to Lakeside today and is in ICU. Two different aides from Prairie View showed up today (on their own time) to check on my mothers well being. This is going above and beyond their job and they did it because of their big hearts and loving attitude toward those they care for. I doubt they understand how much this has meant to me and my mother. When I told her that they had been there, she smiled and said: "They are such sweethearts and I am lucky to have them care for me". AND I agree with her comment. ~Dee

I wish I could write out all of your names because I want everyone to know how much I appreciate the kindnesses you have shown me and the assistance you have given me.

Today is my 24th day here. Because of your help, I can now go home and try to get by on my own. I am grateful for your patience, your good humor and your pleasant ways, and for all the times you assisted me.

Thank you. Thank you.

Fondly, Mary Lickteig

There are no words to express how truly grateful we are for how you cared for our Dad with such love and respect over the past four years.

Although it wasn't the way he would have wished to spend his last few years, he knew, as did we, that there was no better place he could have been. Each of you are truly incredible, selfless people, and we are truly grateful for the love, kindness and care you gave our dad.

My sister and I would like to thank everyone for all the support, tender care, acts of kindnesses, hugs, kisses, prayers and all the many ways you blessed our mother while she was living at Brookestone.

We witnessed so many beautiful acts of caring while she was living there. It is a struggle to find the right words to express our gratitude. Mom has always been our treasure, and all of you treated her like she was your treasure too. How do we say think you for a gift like that?

Each of you treated Mom the way we wanted her treated with respect, kindness, dignity and with caring hands.

Our prayers were answered when we found Brookestone Village. God definitely blessed Mom and us through all of you!"

From the moment I walked into Brookestone Village, I knew it was the place for my Mom. The facility was warm and inviting; the staff was exceptional; the care was given with the utmost concern and compassion. I will always be grateful my Mom had such a wonderful place to live.

On behalf of my mother, I would like to thank you and the staff at Brookestone Village for the fantastic care given my mother during her two month stay. Brookestone Village is an impressive facility and my mother was very happy with the treatment that she received while she was there. She told me on numerous occasions that she couldn't believe how wonderful the staff was to her and that they treated her with such kindness, dignity, and gentleness. She loved the view from her window and stated that it made her feel so good.

A sincere thank you to the staff at Brookestone Village for the extraordinarily kind and gentle care our mother received while staying there. She was treated so tenderly and so gently. We could not have cared for her any better ourselves. We will always be grateful for your help.

We can't thank you enough for your kind and loving care during our Mom's recent illness. Your warmth and compassion were unsurpassed and we can't tell you how much comfort that brought to her family. Knowing she was in your capable hands when we weren't there was invaluable and we thank you for all you did to keep her comfortable and well-cared for. She truly enjoyed being at Brookestone Village and that is a testament to all of you.

Thank you for the dedicated and professional care my mother received while living at Brookestone Village. After entering Brookestone VIllage, she had a quality of life I never thought she would have again. She told me often how much she liked Brookestone Village, and how she appreciated the care she received and how much she hoped she would never have to move from Brookestone Village. I will be forever indebted to all of you who cared so lovingly for her.

You must be aware of the exceptional talents, quality of delivery, and attitude of the staff at Brookestone Village. In the last few months, I have had an occasion to be with these people and see their work. It is clear to me that each of the various staff members knows that they collectively deliver virtual life saving and quality of life service. It is all exceptional!

It is also obvious that every single person doing the various parts is aware that these contributions fit into a big picture of terrific care. In the case of my mother, they should each know that they have materially improved the quality of her life as well as saved it. For this, I am unable to express my gratitude.

We can't begin to thank you enough for the outstanding care your staff provided for our mother. There are too many staff members to thank individually, however many of them certainly went over and above the call of duty and for that we are eternally grateful. Our mother's quality of life was greatly enhanced by their compassion and care.

We so appreciated how each unique challenge was handled and how they always strived to make each day a beautiful one.

Thank you for all of the wonderful care that you provided to our father during his stay at Brookestone Village. We highly recommend your facility to all of our friends and family!

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of the kindness and care my father received in your facility. My sister and I are so thankful that Dad found a place where he could be happy, make good friends, experience some wonderful care and feel "at home away from home." We are especially grateful to the therapy department for the role they played in Dad’s care.

A well-earned thank you to your fabulous facility from my entire family. I must tell you that we have never experienced such outstanding care from your amazing staff, nor such a high demonstrated commitment to pro-active, holistic patient/resident and family centered care. We extoll your virtues on a community-wide basis, in hope that EVERY beloved parent would be a recipient of Brookestone Village’s wonderful HOME!

Every single day was a miracle that resulted in my mother's progression into almost complete ambulatory…well actually now she can walk better than she has in 10 years and is planning another knee replacement with post surgical rehab ONLY at Brookestone Village. We truly grew to love you all as part of our own family.

Please share this testimony of our experiences with your wonderful staff and please use us as a reference or touch point for anyone who is considering either residence or rehab at Brookestone Village.

[We] would like to thank Brookestone and staff members for your excellent service. The staff did a wonderful job of caring for my father. They went above and beyond their job duties to show my father respect and care. The staff also showed our family patience and understanding at this difficult time. They were always prompt and efficient whenever we called for assistance and maintained a good sense of humor when my dad teased them.

I will be sure and recommend your home to our friends and other family members.

My mom just left your facility and I just wanted to tell you that everything was so wonderful. I live in Colorado and we would be lucky to have a fourth of the services that you give. Everyone was so kind. Miekka (admissions planner) was something like a dream. Any questions I had or anything…it was like she must be picked from heaven. I've never met anyone so delightful. Kudos for everything you’re doing. Everyone was just outstanding. Thank you for taking good care of my mom and for running such a nice facility.

Mom was the 80th person to come live at Brookestone. She didn't want to leave her warm and loving home but she soon realized that her new warm and loving home was here.

Her favorite place to sit was by the staff door so she could watch you come and go. She beamed as each and every one of you greeted her by name.

We knew Mom would get wonderful care here but we didn’t know that caring came with so much love.

I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to the staff at Brookestone Village, especially all the special caregivers on Lakeview. Our mother was a resident and we couldn’t have asked for more loving care. No matter how often they were called they came and never complained about being too busy. They all seemed to care. I'd like to name everyone that took such good care of Mom, but I'm afraid I might forget someone. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
