    YOUR INFORMATION

Thank You Messages

To: Brandon DuBois, Accounts Receivable Manager

I have often contacted your business office (Brandon Dubois specifically) concerning insurance claims involving my mother’s care. Brandon has been an excellent, level headed, always helpful resource in resolving the myriad of frustrating reimbursement roadblocks that the long-term insurance companies have presented. He deserves extra kudos for his excellent customer service! As a retired accounting manager, he is the kind of employee that I wished that I had working in my office. All too often, we overlook the “back” office personnel in any industry. In this case, Brandon’s dedication deserves recognition as an essential part of your team.

Thank you for always making my mom happier than ever with your amazing attitude, and your love for her, and all of the residents. You are always smiling, and in turn, makes everyone else smile! You always have fun with the activities, and the patience it must take amazes me, because you do it all with grace! You truly are the type of person everyone would want caring for their family members.

To: The Staff on Charlene’s Place

Donna W. is my mom. You are so appreciated, respected and valued by my family and me. It is hard for us to not be able to visit Mom, but we take great comfort in knowing you are giving her the best care. Most of all, we know you do so with the upmost kindness, humor and love. I cannot express our appreciation enough, especially now. You are part of Mom’s family and we love you!

I hope you continue to be well and safe. Thank you again and again.

To: To all Julia’s Place staff

I want to say that I appreciate SO MUCH the efforts of all Bethany personnel, but especially all those working at Julia’s Place where my wife Emma resides. I understand very well the “pain in the neck” of their major efforts to remain healthy at home and at work so our family residents don’t get infected. Thank you, tank you so much.

To: All of you at Bethany

Emmy S. is my Mom. I live thousands of miles away, and I am very grateful that I can trust you to take good care of her! I know she can be difficult, and she can be gracious. Your job is not easy; I wish I could help you with my own hands and time, and I wish I could add to your paychecks. I would bring treats, I would know specific names to mention and I would praise specific kind and competent acts to your bosses. I can’t do those things but I can tell you that I DO appreciate all of you!

To: All of Bethany Life, Timberland and Cedar Place Employees

“Thank you” is hardly enough to express the gratitude of this community and all the residents you are caring for during these stressful times. Your commitment and also the sacrifices each of your families must endure are a blessing to each of the residents you care for. “Thank You” and bless each of you.
