What People say…
The family of WF wish to say thank you to everyone at Our Lady of the Meadows for their love and care of our mother for the last seven months. We are grateful for Claire and Hib for coming to visit her in Bakersfield and helping us in placing her here. Also to all the Doe’s for the many times we needed help with something about her room or finances. And special thanks to all the staff – nursing, caregivers, housekeeping and kitchen – we know you all had a part in her happiness here. Special thanks to Activities for encouraging her to take part. She was always particularly fond of music. We could not be more pleased with the love that was shown to her. And finally the ladies who were with Mom at her last – the words that come to mind are kindness and professional in how her death was dealt with. You have all been wonderful. Sincerely,
CP, DF, MB and our families – August 2017
Hello, You know I want to thank each and every one that took such good care of SB. She told me about a lot of things. She was so excited when she won the picture that the man painted. I hope you kept it. I know that’s the way she would of wanted it. She also mentioned the gentleman who came to the hospital for her when she had no other way of getting back. She liked to talk and told me nice things – all good. So… Thank you. June 2016 Just a little note to all the staff of Our Lady of the Meadows for the wonderful care of RP before and after his death. He is missed beyond words. We all loved him. You have such a beautiful place. I will always remember the great care he got from all.
SP & Family
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
The Doe family and the Staff of St. Joseph’s Memory Care, My sincere gratitude to each of you for the loving and professional care you provided to my Mother.
Dear Claire and Family We are so grateful to you and your wonderful caregivers at Our Lady of the Meadows for giving our Mom; Christine, such a loving home over the past two years. She was treated with enormous kindness and compassion by everyone there, and we know she loved you all. It was a great comfort to us every time we came to visit her to see her smiles and to witness all the wonderful comments and hugs she received from her caregivers. They are all truly exceptional people. We will always appreciate everything you and your staff have done for our Mom, you will always be on your hearts.

Dear Steve, Loren, Claire, all the staff, nurses, hospice, etc…, Thank you so much for the care you gave my mother the past 8 years. When I was looking for a facility for my parents, I found out about “Our Lady”, visited it and looked no further. I have never been disappointed. The support I was given this last week was wonderful, and I was so impressed with the way my mother’s person and body was respected and honored as she approached death and after as well. Thank you for the beautiful nightgown and blanket she was wearing. It meant so much!!! Love you all,
Dear Staff of Our Lady of the Meadows (OLM), I am continually appreciative of the loving care you give to my Mom and to all the residents at OLM. Your sensitivity, caring, joy, love, sense of humor, listening and gentleness (to list a few of the attributes I see every time I come to see Mom) warm my heart. In honor of each and every one of you, Mom and I are contributing to your Employee Emergency Fund. Love,
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.
To the owners and staff at Our Lady of the Meadows, My Mother, MW, was a resident for almost 2 years. Sadly she died in February of pneumonia and complications. Through her time at Our Lady of the Meadows, we were pleased with the wonderful warm care she received. We were so thankful she was there when she could no longer live at home – it gave her family peace of mind. She was a special lady. Sincerely, HM January 2016
