107th Birthday Celebration & Letter of Gratitude

March 26th, 2021

We had a very special day earlier this month at Lilydale Senior Living as our friend and resident, Richard M., celebrated his 107th birthday! To commemorate the special occasion, he had a special visit with his daughter, Margo, and son, Richard, including a Zoom call with a large group of friends and family extending their congratulations, love, and birthday wishes. Please join us in wishing Richard a very happy birthday! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽŠ

Our Residence Director, Pam, recently received a lovely letter of gratitude from a family member of one of our community members. He wanted to recognize the hard work of two Lilydale Senior Living associates – Stanley, a Home Health Aide, and Lamech in maintenance – in helping him replace the toilet seat in his loved one’s apartment:

“Today Stanley and Lamech pulled me out of the deep. It has become uncomfortable for Betty to sit on the toilet, so I bought her a cushioned seat which I thought I could install easily. Despite great efforts, I could not get the rusty bolts out of the old toilet seat.

Stanley volunteered to help me; before accepting his help, I had him confirm that it would not prevent him from carrying out his regular duties. He was able to remove the left bolt, but the right one wouldnโ€™t budge. I told him we could use one of the plastic bolts that came with the new seat until Lamech could help remove the stubborn, rusty bolt next week.

However, Stanley was not satisfied with this suggestion. He was sure Lamech had power tools that he could use to get the right bolt out, and that proved to be the case. With both rusty bolts out, the new cushioned toilet seat went in easily. Betty is thrilled!

Stanley showed admirable persistence and ‘stick-to-it-iveness.’ He wanted to keep going when I was ready to give up. Heโ€™s terrifically handy, in addition to being an incredibly nice guy.

You know I think the world of the entire Lilydale staff, but Stanleyโ€™s actions today, with Lamechโ€™s coaching, deserve special mention.” – Mike P.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience, Mike! We take pride in going above and beyond for the residents and family members of Lilydale Senior Living, and we love to hear when it shows. Awesome job, Stanley and Lamech – we are all so lucky to have you both in our community!
