Memorable People at Assisted Living

Some people leave an impression. When my mother-in-law entered assisted living, the staff at Canyon View really impressed me. When they would answer the her call for aid, they were friendly, compassionate, and caring. They came in with a cheerful smile and a positive attitude.

One of them told us that when she was hired, she was told that it was part of her job description to treat the residents as though they were a member of their own family. This same aid said that she tried to treat the people under her care the way she would like to be treated when she is old.

When you have loved ones who can no longer care for themselves, it is such a comfort to know they are being cared for by patient, loving, and tender people.
