What our residents and their families are saying
No one knows us better than the residents who call Southgate Residence “home,” and the families who trust us to care for their loved ones. Please take a few minutes to read what they have to say about their personal experiences with us.
so much for your quick response and generous offer to
print emails and give to my Mother. This feature
will keep us in touch more often and benefit us all.
I must say that all the staff at Southgate are simply
"remarkable, loving and caring". My mother has
never told me of anything wrong or even hinted that she
would like something changed. She keeps telling me
in her special "Dutch Accent"...I love it so much never
let anyone take me away from here!!! Everything is
great from the food the kitchen staff
prepare/laundry/cleaning and support!!!
a Great Team There!!!
for your continued support and care."
and I would like to thank you for the use of the
activity room to celebrate Dad's 96th birthday. It
was a special time for him and he was truly happy to see
everyone. That room is a lovely place to have a
party. Thanks again!"
"Please extend our thanks to all your staff for helping to make Mom’s 90th birthday party such a success. Mom was worried that she wouldn't be presentable for her big event without us there to help her get ready, but our preparations at the church prevented us from helping. We knew the staff would take care of everything. We were not disappointed – and neither was Mom. Your staff members ensured that she made it safely to her hair appointment and back, and got her dressed beautifully, earrings and all! We got some great pictures of the day and Mom looks terrific in them. The night staff greeted her at the door when we brought her back, inquired about the party, and listened with genuine interest as she relived the day. With all the attention everyone paid to her about a simple 90th party, she's already wondering what she'll wear to her 100th!
Thanks again to everyone at Southgate for the very fine care you are providing Mom. We NEVER would have wished a broken hip on her, but the silver lining is that we found Southgate. She is obviously getting the stimulation and companionship she needs, or she wouldn't be planning a 100th birthday party! Hope you got some of the cake!"
"Sharon and I would like to say thank you for the wonderful care you gave my Mother. She loved being there and made it her new home. She loved all the staff, who were so kind and compassionate. The level of care given her during her last months was well beyond the ordinary, which speaks highly of all those in your organization. The way everyone went out of their way to accommodate our needs while we spent time with Mom was so kind and considerate. Many thanks for all you have done. You are so appreciated. May God bless
"Thank you so much for your loving, kind care of my Mom while she was a visitor there for three and a half weeks. We can't express enough what a blessing you were to us! Thank you - God bless you! "
Our Dad thanks you for the lovely, signed card and all the many great times he had—especially with dress-up day and the musical entertainment.
