The Most Kind and Loving People I’d Ever Met

“The first time I set foot inside the doors of Via Elegante was to take a tour to move my dad there. I was greeted with some of the most kind and loving people I’d ever met. The atmosphere was so warm and inviting and very clean. Each staff member was so welcoming and cheerful. I could tell, immediately, they weren’t just there because it was a job, but because they were passionate about the residents. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that this was the perfect place for my dad. When I moved him from California to Via Elegante we were greeted outside before even getting out of the car. Each staff member welcomed my dad with open arms. They went above and beyond to make sure all my dad’s needs were met and they did it with a happy heart. Although my dad didn’t participate in all the activities, and there were many, he really enjoyed singing during music time. My dad passed away eight short days later and I can’t express how much love and compassion that was shown toward me by each staff member. Although it’s been a year since my dad’s passing I enjoy stopping by to say hi because I feel a connection with each of them that I will always treasure and hold close to my heart. I enjoy visiting with some of the residents from time to time that befriended my dad during his time there. Each of them are so precious and special to me. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude to Anne and the staff at Via Elegante for all their love, kindness, and compassion they showed me and my precious dad. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. God Bless” — Christina E.
