  • Wanted to send a quick note to say how wonderful today’s Christmas Eve-Eve lunch was. We really appreciate everything you all do – especially the monthly family celebrations, but you all outdid yourselves today. The food, people and calmness of the luncheon were all beyond expectations – especially the people who were serving the food, giving gifts to the residents, and doing everything to make for a very special, pleasant celebration. [We] are so happy that we found the Annapolitan. You all are the best. My kudos to you and the staff for again putting on another outstanding event.

    Family of Resident, December 2017
  • If everyone in the world were as kind and caring as the staff of the Annapolitan, the world would be a better place. Thank you for all you do to make the lives of others so happy.

    Family of Resident, December 2017
  • As [mom’s health] got worse and your job grew harder, you only grew more attentive to my mom’s needs. That same commitment to all your residents can be seen in their smiles and good attitude, which was an important part of making my parents feel at home. Knowing they were taken care of so well was a huge comfort to us and the rest of our family…

    Keep up the good work… you should know that you are much appreciated by many.

    Family of Resident, December 2017
  • It’s difficult to express just how grateful I am for the care [my husband] received in Cattail… All the aides are so loving and good to the residents. I saw many instances of spontaneous hugs or gentle touches from many staff members.

    Please feel free to use this letter as a testimonial. I am sure I have left people out who deserve mention – front desk staff comes to mind, but everyone I encountered was truly exceptional. You all were so caring of him. I know he appreciated it – you were family for his last four years.

    Spouse of Cattail Cove Resident, November 2017
  • Dear Annapolitan Family, You were and are a gift from God… all of your staff and residents! You were His angels on earth and the very best place for [our mother’s] last days – for her health, her marriage, and expression of the kind heart and humor she had. Thank you!

    Family of Resident, November 2017

  • I want to express my sincere gratitude to you and the staff of The Annapolitan for the care my sister received. Living out of state made it very important to me to have faith in the caregiving staff I selected. Out of twelve facilities that we visited, I was most impressed by The Annapolitan. I feel that your staff was caring and responsive to [my sister’s] needs. Several staff were especially loving to her, with hugs and kisses… I was most comforted knowing she was receiving the best care at The Annapolitan.

    Family of Resident, May 2016

    Resident and Family, June 2015
  • In general, and even in clearly difficult situations, I’ve seen staff and management respond to others again and again with genuineness, respectfulness and kindness. I am so grateful for all of you and so glad that my mom could make her home with you.

    Daughter of Resident, April 2015
  • We are thankful every day that we found The Annapolitan. Mom is so happy there – she has her friends and activities. Fun events every month, the staff are so friendly and professional. Mom feels like she’s in the “lap of luxury” but she’s able to afford it on her fixed income. And we really appreciate your warm hospitality – allowing us to come over and have meals with Mom at no charge and use the activities room for her 80th birthday party – providing ice and beverage containers and utensils. We looked at many places before choosing The Annapolitan. We whole-heartedly recommend The Annapolitan to anyone with an aging parent who needs a bit of extra help but still wants to stay active and live with dignity.

    Daughter of Resident, March 2015
  • Thanks for taking such good care of our Dad… during his stay with you. We appreciate every one of you for making his day a little brighter. Bless you all.

  • Thanks for a terrific Christmas celebration. Beautiful decorations, delicious food, festive entertainment, and great gifts – you did it all! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you so much.

    Family of Resident, December 2014
  • They were terrific with my ex-husband. I never had any problems with him there. My son is POA… so we moved his father… to be closer to him, but Annapolitan was terrific. They would clean his place and took care of his cat. They went out and bought kitty litter and whatever he needed and then sent my son the bill. The care was excellent. It’s a wonderful wonderful place. They had a going away party for him with cards and presents and a cake.

    - Family of Resident, from Senioradvisor.com, January 2015
  • You and your staff took such care of [my husband’s] mom… It was a relief to us to know she was surrounded by individuals such as you! God Bless You!

    Daughter-in-law and Son of Resident, November 2014
  • Just wanted to thank you all so much for helping to make my father’s 94th birthday get-together a great success… The food was very good, and the activities room was perfect for cake and entertainment, and everyone got greeted and directed to the right location with ease. It is difficult to plan something like this when you are out of state, but all of you helped to make it possible.

    Daughter of Resident, October 2014
  • My mother is in the area for dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. They can decide what color of the room they want — they’d paint it up and everything… It is very clean, and the staff is very affectionate, very nice, and very kind. I don’t know what else to say; it is a very, very good place. My mother is a very feisty 92 year old woman… This is the first place that she has really liked.

    - Daughter of Cattail Cove Resident, from Caring.com, October 2014
  • I wish to thank you and The Annapolitan staff for your kind and attentive care of our mother… especially the care of the Cattail Cove caregivers.

    …Your staff always finds a way to do what has to be done cheerfully. They always treat mom like the special woman she is… The fact that she is five weeks into her recovery and has developed none of the complications of prolonged bed rest is a testament to that care.

    Daughter of Cattail Cove Resident, October 2014
  • All of you have been so nice in such a thoughtful way, it’s hard to find a way to thank each of you for all of your kindness. Thank you for my parting gifts and the party you had for me. I will miss all of you.

    A Former Annapolitan Resident, September 2014

  • As always, thank you and please pass on my sincere thanks to all the caregivers involved with mom’s care. As I’m sure you’re aware, I’m there visiting mom every week and I see the kindness and attentiveness shown to her and the other residents. You have some of the best.

    Son of Cattail Cove Resident, September 2014
  • Just wanted to let you know that [my father] was very touched by the Easter baskets that you had for everyone at breakfast yesterday. He said that “we’re old people who are just kids at heart;” he obviously really appreciated the thoughtfulness.

You were absolutely correct about the delicious food. Lunch was not just a meal, but a feast! …Please convey my thanks… for a job well done!

    Seminar Attendee, Hospice of the Chesapeake, April 2014
