Notes of Thanks
Williams Lake Senior Village
“I just wanted to let you know how the care aids and nurses have meant to me since Janet was in their care from January 21, 2018 to April 1, 2019. Each one of them showed great compassion and true caring for Jan. I have had several conversations with a few of the care aids and nurses and a few conversations with some others but each one was sympathetic and understanding. Numerous times I have thought that a special type of person is required to do both jobs and maintain that element of caring. Some of the nurses I am thinking of are Prabh Kaur, Prabhjot, Raman, and Shea and some of the care aids are Nikita, Lorna, Julie, Tina and Sherry. The problem with listing names is forgetting one or two so if I forgot any names I apologize to those people because there wasn’t anybody presently in the Chilcotin Wing who didn’t show Janet love and compassion. Thank you.”

Guildford Senior’s Village
“I have been able to spend some weeks at the Guildford Seniors Village during the past year as a respite resident. It’s one of the best places around for respite care. Well-located in the downtown part of Guildford, it’s a clean and secure environment with delicious meals, excellent staff, and lots of good recreational choices.
My first two-week stay was in August 2018 when I was beginning to recuperate from an aneurysm/stroke I had in November 2017. At that time, I could not do much by myself so relied on the capable and loving care given to me by everyone at the Village.
My second visit was in December 2018 before Christmas. On this visit, I was able to sit on the side of the bed for a short period and feed myself with my left hand only. I was still quite needy for assistance to bathe and dress. I was taken in a wheelchair to meals and other events. Staff were always happy to help me whether it be bathing, dressing, or taking me to recreation activities. I felt very lucky to be in my ‘home away from home’.
My third visit to the Guildford Seniors Village was in April 2019. After seven months of physiotherapy, I had improved considerably. I was now in a walker, feeding myself, and dressing myself. However, I am 88 and still need assistance with some daily activities. The Village has been the perfect place for me at all stages of my recovery.”

“To all the nurses, management, and staff at Guildford Senior’s Village,
On behalf of Joe, Antonio, Tracey and our entire family, we thank you for taking such great care of our mother Graciela (Grace) Hernandez McPhee for the 2 years and 3 ½ months that she was a resident at Guildford Senior’s Village. Every time we visited our mother, she seemed happy and content with her surroundings. All of you genuinely care about all the residents. We also appreciate the compassion you showed Grace. You made our mother and us feel that we were part of the Guildford Senior’s Village family. Special people like you make the world a brighter place.”
– Sincerely, Antonio & Tracey
Peace Portal Seniors Village
“After being fully independent my mother needed full time care and I was unable to be there. Peace Portal Seniors Village was the first to respond to my request for help, even on a weekend. Jamie MacDonald and the staff were instrumental in my mother’s recovery. They’re both professional and caring attitude could not have been better. I would highly recommend this residence to anyone.”
