I have been the caregiver for my 95 year old Aunt Catherine, for the past 5 ½ years. I did my best to accommodate all her needs and keep her living as independently as possible in her apartment in Brooklyn. Unfortunately, she had a bad fall this past March. At that point, she was no longer able to go back and live in that same apartment where she had lived for the past 25 or so years. I was so nervous to uproot her and take her away from everything she knew. Needless to say, I was overwhelmed with the task of finding a nursing facility that would please my heart and head for dear Auntie.
I searched and searched and searched and searched. Viola, I finally found Salem Hills! Well, I’m not just happy with Salem Hills, I feel so blessed Aunt Catherine is able to be part of the amazing SH family. Here are the most caring, qualified, efficient, helpful, upbeat staff Aunt Catherine has ever had the pleasure of knowing –people she now calls her friends…. people I can always rely. The atmosphere is welcoming – and the place is clean; one would say, immaculate. I want to give a special shout out to: Jenn, the incredible social worker who knows each and every one of the residents needs, Paula and Jessica who tirelessly and cheerfully get every resident involved in fun events downstairs, Lauren our very special night nurse who extends her expertise and friendship to all on the second floor, and Diane in Finance, who has made the process of undertaking the vast amount of confusing paperwork so smoothly. Thankx, too, to the custodial staff who keeps the place sparkling. Ps. And I’m thrilled to report…there is no “old people” smell –EVER -- AT ALL! Salem Hills, you have joined us as our treasured family! Thank you, thank you, thank you to all.
