I wanted to thank you and your team for all you did for Annette white and myself. I can’t tell you how much it mean to me that you took a chance with Annette. In a very difficult and uncertain time, you save me hope. If her care did not start at Colonial Poplin and I had placed her somewhere else first. I would have always had a lingering about and guilt that I did not do all I could to give her the most independent life style. But because of you I have a peacee of mind. Thank you again for going above and beyond. Even though it did not work at as I hoped, it has worked at exactly how it needed to for her care.
Dear Mr. Philbrick,
Because of you I got to volunteer here. The past 4 years here has been amazing and helped me through a lot. Before volunteering here I was extremely insecure but after 4 years here I’ve learned more about myself and have become a lot more confident. I’ve learned to live life the way that I want to because I want to look back someday and feel happy about every choice that I’ve made. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything. I hope to continue coming here and helping until the day that I live here. I’ve changed a lot since I’ve started here and I’m proud of who I became. I know now what I want to in life thank to many conversations I’ve had with people here. There isn’t enough words in the world that I could use to tell you how much this place means to me. Once again, thank you for everything.
Wishing you the best Valentines day,
To the Colonial Poplin Administrators and Staff,
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks and grateful appreciation to all of you for giving my mother, Lee Bartlett, excellent care and comfort over the last two and a half years. I truly believe she had the best care available anywhere.
She enjoyed so many of you, and appreciated your kind and loving attention and conversations. She never complained about being there, and l think that’s testament to the dignity, respect and love you all afford to each resident. You allowed her to be who she was. And you made it possible for her to maintain a sense of self control and independence, not only by inviting her to go out of the facility on the weekly organized shopping and lunch trips, but also by allowing her afternoon glass of wine and the incoming food orders from Fremont Pizzeria. And storing her leftovers, which she seemed pretty adept at keeping track of! All of these things helped keep her spirits up and gave her something to look forward to.
Thank you for encouraging her as she battled back from the fatigue of chemotherapy. Sean, Bill and l were heartened to see the improvement and thrilled at being able to take her out of the facility ourselves for appointments, shopping, haircuts, or a bite to eat. I am grateful that we were able to have those good times with her.
I can’t fully express how thankful I am to each one of you for choosing the profession you are in. You are each gifted professionals with big hearts and a strong sense of duty. I am particularly grateful for your work throughout the pandemic. I know it hasn’t been easy. We are fortunate you are there and you continue to provide excellent care. You have no doubt heard this many times, and I hope you don’t tire of it— you are angels and heroes, a blessing to us all. Thank you.
