My brother lived for a month in Walden Place. It was a very clean and friendly community that had a really nice dining facility. It was within his budget, and we could easily add services if needed. It’s convenient for us and his friends to visit.
I searched for a long time before moving my parents from Texas to Beaverdale Estates. It was a mutual decision to have them move into this beautiful independent living community. The entry into the building is welcoming with the outdoor rockers and the open entryway. The regal dining area is beautiful to sit in. One of the many things we enjoy at Beaverdale is the musical entertainment by Managers Aaron and Margaret Jamal. They are amazing. Not only are they wonderful managers, they are magnificent musicians! Their smiles bring light to the room and give us all a feeling of being "family". Many times, Aaron has given my dad a few words of encouragement or perhaps a different way to look at things. It's made a difference during a not-so-good day. And Margaret is always so positive! She's helped me through some tough days with my parents. Their faith always shows through in all they do. Beaverdale Estates is a generation of people who, for the majority, are faith-based. This is one of the reasons we are at Beaverdale. If it weren't for these particular managers, we would leave. They make it "home" so HOME is where we are at!
I want to tell you about the managers, Aaron and Margaret Jamal, who truly make this place a home. They understand the needs of the elderly. They show compassion, dignity, and caring for each individual. They know each resident by name and they call them by name, as well. Aaron and Margaret are very loving and musically talented people and they share their talents with the entire community. They are needed here as they are FAMILY here. When they are on duty, there is an air of light heartedness and a truly peaceful feeling of being HOME. Their presence is not only one of security, it is one of faith, of promise, and hope and a loving protectiveness that you can only find with managers who are dedicated and willing to remain with the community longterm. They give us the sense of the togetherness one would get as being part of a family, which Beaverdale Estates is....thanks to Margaret and Aaron. They are all business when it is needed and all family when needed, as well. God bless them for their service!!!
My father recently became a resident of Illahee Hills and I can't speak more highly about the resident managers and all of the staff at the facility. They take time with the residents and are kind and sensitive to their needs. The facility is safe, clean and very welcoming. I live across country and I feel confident that dad is in the best possible location.
