My mom always says the people are so nice here. She always likes the meals. They are very much like the meals she has at home.
Throughout her stay here, the entire staff have been remarkable: caring, friendly, skilled and made you feel welcome! From aides to nurses, and especially the whole therapy staff, it has been as good an experience as you could ever hope for. It is truly a ‘WOW’ feeling. Thank you!
A very special thanks to the The Gardens at
Camp Hill for being like family to my mother for the final year and a half of her life. My mom’s last words were to a CNA, “Bella”, which means
“beautiful” in Italian. They were and still are like family to me! Thank you!
