What People say…
Dear Doe Family and Staff, I want to say a most grateful thanks to you all for the compassionate care my brother received for the year he was with you at “Our Lady”. Bruce has been a man of gentle courtesy, humor, and sense of fun in his earlier life. He has been a man of community, family, always willing to help and support – as a volunteer fireman, boy scout leader for decades, senior leader in Masonic circles for the State of Vermont. I believe he knew he received loving care from kind and patient staff. Those behind the scenes, although not visible to me as Bruce’s visitor, obviously take pride in meeting “Our Lady’s” philosophy. Specifically, I think of the cleaning crew-excellent work all the time. And the cooks I met when I delivered 2 baskets of squash from Phineas Swan’s gardens – genuinely thankful as they prepared evening dinner in an organized and clean kitchen. You all are on your toes all the time – and how appreciative I am. I could only manage the driv…
Dear Christina and Steve, You provided a place where Mom was welcomed, felt secure and happy and was well cared for. Thank you for what you do. Sincerely, B&L March 2016
You all became such an important part of my life, everyone at Our Lady of the Meadows, residents and staff. I am so grateful for the care that my mother and I received. In the most sensitive and difficult times, I always felt the grace of your love and care. Thank you, sincerely thank you for all that you do for the families and residents at Our Lady of the Meadows.
I am so happy to be here. You are all the greatest group of people I ever met. You are the kindest and found me the greatest room. I love it. I just love being near my Honey, R. (her husband) Thank you all so very much. You are wonderful and I love you.

To everyone at Our Lady of the Meadows! My deepest gratitude from myself and all the family for all your loving care and support for my Mother while she resided there. I hold in the highest regard your establishment and thank you for all you’ve done to make my Mother welcome, cared for, loved and so much, much more.
Our sincere appreciation and gratitude goes out to all of you for the wonderful care you have given our mother, J, in the years of her residency as well as at her passing. She would often mention how loved she felt as you all gave her hugs & kisses & attention and she added “I guess they like me here!” She was so happy to have her bird feeders by her window and how you took the time to fill them when she could no longer do it herself. And of course the jigsaw puzzle table that you enabled her to have in the Great Room was such a special place for her. All of those personal touches and many more to numerous to mention meant a lot to her and us. We understand that this is also a loss to you, “her family” at Our Lady, as much as it is a loss for us. Surely, you will miss her stories, her quick wit, and her smile too. Thank You. – October 2017
