Our Dad/Husband, Don T., came to Valley Oaks in April, 2013. He had been diagnosed with terminal bone cancer. We were pretty much in shock and really did not know what to expect for the next 3-6 months.
From the day he entered Valley Oaks, the care and attention he received was excellent. Between my mother and five siblings, we visited often and dealt with many Valley Oaks staff including the nurses, aides, janitorial staff, maintenance department, activities, administration, and office and receptions staff.
What a wonderful group of caring, dedicated, and patient people! Our dad was made to feel comfortable, safe, clean, and well cared for. That was so very important to us. We all got to know the staff, learn about their lives, and to develop a relationships [sic] with them over the five months dad was there. We were blessed to have come in contact with so many special people. We are Thankful that we made the choice to bring our dad to Valley Oaks.
We are moving dad home to see if he and mom can be at home together. If not, we will have to move them to a facility that has both independent and full nursing care.
We will miss the special people at Valley Oaks that provided such wonderful care for dad. You will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Thank you more than we can say.
