Top-notch nursing care
My mom’s move to Kendrick House in March 2018 has given her a whole new lease on life. She was living by herself previously and suddenly needed assisted living after a fall. Kendrick House has given her top-notch nursing care, a strong sense of community, constant company, new friendships and fun times. All of the staff care for her with love and understanding, which brings me immense peace and happiness. Thanks to you all from the bottom of my heart!

Thank you and the staff of Kendrick House
I wanted to send you a note to thank you and the staff of Kendrick House in particular the nursing staff. Mom has been with you for 6 months now and as things go, one always wonders if you have done the correct thing. Well, all my doubts were put to bed on Friday evening when she told me that when she dies and people ask me what she died of, I should answer “she laughed too much”. Thank you to especially the nursing staff who make sure that her every need is seen too and that she is happy and comfortable. I know that she is not always the easiest person, but I have not had any complaints from her about the care she receives at Kendrick House.
God bless each one of you and keep you safe
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Kendrick House is made up of so many moving parts, and each part working to keep the whole working in just perfect order. We want to say a deep appreciation to each member of staff who works at Kendrick House for your tireless dedication to residents and to the manager for keeping the wheels turning even in times such as Covid 19 which make things extremely difficult.
Thank you everyone, it has all been very much appreciated.
