I would like to acknowledge a true gem in our community. The Carlton Senior Living Facility was where my mother spent the last couple of years of her life. The staff at the Carlton allowed my mother to age on her terms and with tremendous respect and dignity.
A special thank-you to all the medical staff and especially to Jose, who was very attentive to my mother’s needs and kept me well-informed. Also, to the front desk staff, who took the time to listen to my mother, whether she had a concern or simply wanted them to admire her latest crocheted creation or fresh-picked flowers. This meant so much to her.
My mother had a special fondness for Jesse, who left working at the front desk to work in the memory care unit. She missed seeing his joyful face but, on the rare occasion she’d see him in the hallway, he would greet her with a hug and she would light up!
The staff took the time to get to know my mother and when she passed I was touched by the hugs and remembrances they shared with me and my family. To each and every staff member, a huge thank-you. My family and I will never forget how difficult your jobs are and are so grateful for your kindness.
