My Mother is a patient in the Meadowbrook Care Center on her own accord she had gone in for therapy many times and decided to stay instead of going back to her apartment. Pre Covid there were plenty of activities to keep my mother busy and she participated and enjoyed very much. During this past year the staff did their best to keep the patients individually entertained. I must give a big shoot out to Tammy from the Recreation Center, she has been a God sent to us, face timing with the family and giving my mother things to keep her busy, arts and crafts, music, she paints her nails she is Wonderful Also Odanys is the perfect concierge he keeps my mother such great company he even sent me a picture when the weather was nicer of him on the rooftop having a dinner date with my mom. He sends me photos and even put one of himself and her on her wall. He does not think of this as a job, I know he really and truly cares for my mom. He and Tammy go way above and beyond. Michael the Head Nurse supervisor during the day is also wonderful, I feel I can call him with any questions I have or ask him to check in on my mother when she is not feeling well, he always responds to me, he calls her doctor right away when he feels he should most of all he takes the time out to listen and we have a great rapport. Paul is also wonderful, my mother was upset one day and she said he came in to ask her what was the matter, she had lost my sons police medal and Paul helped her search high and low, as did everyone, and told her a joke and showed her some pictures of his family to make her feel better. He even gave her a cold thermos with a straw when she wasn’t drinking enough water and fills it for her when ever he is around. My mother and her aide Camille, love to joke about my mother having a crush on Paul,, no wonder she always says, I really like it here we have a lot of laughs. Lydia who is also from recreations is wonderful as well she is not on my mom’s unit but stops by to see her as well as DeShawn also from the Recreation department, my mother and him would always kid at Bingo he also is such a caring person who does not think of his position as a job, he even played Santa and Ran from room to room yelling HoHoHo, he really got the patients in the Spirit, he does not work on my mothers unit anymore but when I was allowed to visit he would always come over and chat with us in the hall. Evette is a Great Head Nurse Supervisor, who always has to make the call when someone is ill or hurt, she talks so nice and softly and really takes the time to explain everything, she makes sure to know her patients well. I can’t forget about the Physical Therapy Department, especially Eric, Scott and I'm so mad I can't remember his name , but he is also from Therapy and another “Boyfriend” of my mothers. The Security Staff is also wonderful!! I don’t know all the names but they know me when I call and are always ready to help in anyway they can. My mother has been in and out over 10 years and I can remember pleasant experiences on each floor, Daniel, who is now a nurse, on the first floor, he was wonderful with my mother when she was in for a broken hip, his parents even came to visit my mother and brought her the cereal Daniel knew she liked and a stuffed Mickey Mouse. Jonathan should be proud of his staff and himself he has made some very good changes since he began, summer Barbecues where all the staff serves the residents and their families, summer outings, Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners, outings to the movies and I always see him as does my Mom walking around chatting with the patients. I must say I really miss of course being able to visit my mom,but also visiting the place and the Wonderful Staff!! Imagine not being able to see your mother or give her a hug or her you for over a year! It makes me feel thankful for all for the Loving Care you have and continue to give my Mother!! Hopefully this nightmare will end soon!!!!
