From a family member of a Magnolia Terrace resident after visiting an apartment for the first time: “The apartment is just delightful and so great for visiting. I could live here; it has everything you need.”
Dear Whispering Pines Staff:
Thank you isn’t enough for what you all did for our dad. We so appreciated the love and wonderful care you gave him. We will be forever grateful. You are all very special, generous, hard-working individuals caring for elderly that require aid in the very basic of needs. That alone takes very special people to do that kind of work!
Please know all your hard work and sincere care for all the residents doesn’t go unnoticed. You are their families and we appreciate all of you more than you will ever know!

Dear Shirley, Susan, Helen and staff
I want to thank you for all the wonderful times you shared with my mother Hilda Horn. She loved to play bingo, card lotto and enjoyed the church services, special events and entertainment. Most of all, it meant a great deal to me that you were there with a hug, comforting words and guidance for her on a daily basis. Bless you for your loving talents and time. I know she will be missed by many.
Please continue the fine work.
Dear Oak Hill Staff,
I think it is okay that I am at a loss for words, since you all know how important you were to my mother, Lillian Shea.
For the last 1 ½ years of my mother’s life, Oak Hill was her home. It was her home because of the people that work there, who helped her day in and day out. She felt special and loved and would have adopted you all if I would have let her.
I fondly remember and treasure so many stories and events: Denny’s coffee cup adventures, making sure she got her Pepsi “Light” with a straw, visiting and calling on your days off to make sure she was okay and knew she was loved, block parties, bar b ques, fish fries, cocktail hours….and music, music, music, her love of “bath time”, how clean you kept her room and residence (mom always commented on this), taking her for a drive past her childhood farm, bringing her homemade treats, making a drink holder for her wheelchair, music on her own IPod, more outings and fieldtrips than I have room to list, having her first “boy” friend/CNA (who she adored), Twinkie wrappers, chocolate stains on her nightgowns and shaking crumbs out of her shoes.
But I think her favorite thing, was how you would stop by her room just to say “hi” and chat a bit.
For all these things, and many more, you will be remembered and cherished.
Thank you for making my mom so happy.

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the care that everyone has given our great grandma (G.G.) Ophelia Germann. You have a quality facility here with excellent staff. Everyone here works as a team and the fact that so many have been here for so long is a testament to Oak Hill maintaining good relations with quality staff.

To the staff at Oak Hill,
My family wants to express our sincere gratitude for the exceptional care our Dad received while he was a residents from April 28th thru May 18th. He was truly anxious to return to his new friends there once released from the hospital. However, God had other plans for him. But he really loved your facility, staff and fellow residents. Thanks for making his last weeks comfortable and welcoming
