First time visitor to Kay. We're nursing school buddies and long time friends. Flew in from Phoenix. Beautiful apartment she had and delightful people here.

– Patricia S.

It has been the best place to handle the hardest thing I have ever done. You and your staff are the best! Your patience has been appreciated. Keep doing what you do! With gratitude,

– Karen

Our mother, 92, has lived in the Lilydale Senior Building since February 2013, almost 4 years. She has a cardiac condition which greatly limits her energy level and she has permanent hearing loss which limits her ability to communicate with others, especially in a large group. My siblings and I want to thank you for the quality of services she continues to receive at Lilydale. The environment is warm, welcoming, fresh and clean. "Eddy" is a delight when she cleans the apartment each week. Whenever anything has needed repair or replacement attention, Ron has responded immediately. She has appreciated Emily's help in selecting meal choices. The meals provided variety and been tasteful, including exceptional desserts. The staff has treated Mom with respect and care. Sue and Pam have worked with us to develop plans to meet Mom's needs as they have changed. Sue has worked closely with Lilydale staff, Hospice staff and us to address concerns related to changing physical needs. It all has been greatly appreciated. Mom's favorite is Matt. It is obvious he cares about her. He is always respectful, helpful and goes above and beyond sharing his abundance of positive joy. It is difficult to see Mom require more assistance with the activities of daily living, knowing she would rather be independent. We feel very fortunate that she is at Lilydale where there is a caring, supportive staff. Thank you!

On March 16th, I observed 5 years residency at Lilydale Senior Living. It's quite amazing to me how quickly the time has passed. I'm reflecting on all the agreeable services in this lovely facility. First, I wish to compliment Ron on his admirable performances in addressing the few issues that I've encountered. His prompt, efficient repairs, provided with a cheerful attitude, have always resulted in satisfactory solutions. My family insists on indulging me with house-keeping services, as you perhaps know. That chore has fallen to Edie most of my time here. She has performed her duties with diligence and dedication in a most exceptional manner. I can't image a more pleasant, competent person doing the tasks for me. Edie is a delightful and outstanding staff member. I'm very grateful for her.

  • Just a note to tell you I feel the addition of the flag pole and our "Stars & Stripes" blowing in the wind daily unites the two buildings of Lilydale Senior Living. I love to look down the driveway on my daily 30-minute walk from Hwy 13 and see the flag blowing in the breeze. It's beautiful! It is a great addition. The ceremony on Thursday brought tears to my eyes. Thank you!

    – Dorothy Grieg
  • Compliment for Roxanne. Good worker.

    – Eleanor
  • The building is so beautiful, but the people are what make it special. Every one of you bring your talent and caring to work very day. You made us feel like family. My dad and mom loved you and I still do. You took our lemons and made lemonade.

    – Karen S
  • A big "thank-you" to the gentleman who wakes and tends to the beautiful flowers in the planters. I enjoy the beauty as do the humming birds, butterflies and moths at night.

    – Wendy
  • Guil Ramsdell is the most professional server in our building. He always makes sure that everything served is hot and he is very kind to all!

    – Vonne Kinney
  • Every time I come to see Mom, I feel some apprehension and often cry on the way home. She is a shell, in many ways, of what she used to be. I pray, just bless our time together - and he does. Today as I was leaving these leaves caught my eye. They had once been something that people would seek out in the fall to appreciate their beauty. They've been blown down in the wind and have disintegrated to a shell. Look, though, now they are intact - all of the veins of life still perfect. I asked a couple of people what they saw in them. "A rotten leaf." To me they are so beautiful in their "earthly imperfection." This to me was one of the many reminders I'm given when things are overwhelming. Mom is intact and beautiful. Every time I watch you be with her I see it. I am so thankful that you are the one who can look at her as the woman she always was, not a shell, but beautiful as those adornments of youth have faded, sometimes more & more every day. I love you for it!

    – Chris
  • What a wonderful place for my dad! He is very well cared for and doing remarkably well. Special thanks to Nikki for doing such a great job!

  • The best part of our experience was the staff. I hope you know how comforting it was when we all walked away and knew they were cared for. The gals in the Memory Unit do their work like they love the residents. That is something that cannot be taught, it comes from within their hearts - The nursing staff, housekeeping and maintenance & kitchen also are all outstanding also. Thanks for the good experience!
