My aunt Rose Marie Bell (Posie) spent several very happy years at Grace Manor. I live in another state, and when she was… no longer able to live alone, we were desperate to find a place that would meet the needs of such an active, vibrant gal as Posie. She attended all the activities, made many dear friends, and enjoyed a beautiful life in her home at Grace. With the magnificent care and attention she received, I was able to sleep peacefully at night, knowing she was safe, happy….and loved. Thank you…more than you could possibly know.
We placed my husband’s father at Grace Manor and he adapted well. His mother also went there and of course we then knew it was definitely the place for my mother. Everyone is so kind and eager to help. They understand each resident’s needs and difficulties in getting around.
The activities they offer to the residents and also having the family members join in was a plus. My mother loved the musical programs and the holiday picnics. The car cruises were fun. I personally made it a point to talk to other residents to find out ’who’ they were and what their life was about. We have so much to learn from other generations and how they made life easier for our generation. I found them to be interesting and I truly believe they enjoyed the attention from other people in addition to their own family.
I would absolutely recommend Grace Manor. The love, kindness and dignity they bestow on their residents far surpasses anything I’ve seen at other assisted living homes. It is a great environment and each resident gets special care. Far better care than a facility with hundreds of people.
I want [to] let everyone know how appreciative our family is for all you have done for my parents, Joseph and Helen Kribel, during their years at Grace Manor. Mom was there for two years and Dad was there for four and a half years.
While they were both reluctant to move to an assisted living facility, my Dad was the extremely stubborn one who hated every aspect of it. But over time and because of the kindness, patience, and gentle care they both received from everyone there, Grace Manor became their home. When my Dad would have to spend time in the hospital, he would constantly ask when he could go back “home” (to Grace Manor).
You made every effort to keep them as residents when some facilities would have insisted the move on to a full care nursing home. You brought in the wonderful people from Celtic Hospice and Health care to help care for them when they got very sick. Best of all, you made it possible for them to be together. That was so important to them!
Our family is extremely grateful for all you have done[.] Thank you to Steve and Laura Possino and everyone that contributed during their stay at Grace Manor (from staff, nursing care, medical care, hospice, room service, hair care, meals, activities or to just checking in or saying hello in the middle of the day).
We were in a hurry to find a place for my mom Ruth who has progressive dementia. We looked at a lot of places but turned around and went right back to the first place a friend recommended to us which was Grace Manor. Steve is there every day which makes me feel good that she is getting that personal attention. The best word to describe Grace Manor is compassion.
Mom has done very well there and the staff is very understanding when having conversations with her. They keep her safe and try to make every day a good day for her. They keep her busy. She has a phone in her room and sometimes I can’t get in touch with her until evening because she is so busy with activities. If she were still at home , she would be sitting in her pajamas in the afternoon until I arrived.
We have always celebrated our holidays at Mom’s house. Since she has been at Grace Manor, I bring our food and we continue to celebrate as a family at ‘Mom’s House.
Grace Manor is an amazing place and it trickles down from the top with Steve. When we needed more skilled rehab for my mother, we own a hair salon and I asked clients for advice and 6 or 7 relayed their positive experiences at Grace Manor to me.
I was so impressed with their staff and how consistent the compassion and skill was among all of them. One time my husband went to pick up my 88-year-old mother for a dentist appointment and he called me to say that ‘You’ll never believe this. She’s doing morning exercises with everyone and laughing and having a great time. I don’t think she’s going to want to leave!’
I watched them treat every resident with the same respect and dignity. We’re Italian, and it was wonderful to bring in food for her and be able to sit in a private room and enjoy that time together. As she progressed to Hospice, we had the choice to move her and we did not. Grace Manor helped us all the way through, and even worried about me and the rest of her family. I can’t say enough good things about Steve and Grace Manor.
My mother moved into Grace Manor assisted living facility on November 1, 2006. She resided there until she passed on May 7, 2012. During her stay there, she received a level of care that was as close to being cared for by a family member as it could have been.
She was treated with respect, love and sensitivity throughout her stay. Steve and Laura were even kind enough to allow her to return to Grace Manor after a hospital stay for hospice care.
My mother passed in her room/her home with her things and on her terms. Steve and Laura could not have given my family a greater gift than that.
I have referred many friends to Grace Manor who have loved ones in need. I know it is a hard decision to move a loved one out of their home. But let me reassure you, Grace Manor is the closest to ‘home away from home’ that is available in the North Hills.
It was also important to us that the owners were onsite, and that they made it a point to hire people who truly cared about seniors.
My mother Helen has been at Grace Manor for two years. Our friends recommended Grace Manor to us because they liked it for their father. We shopped around and this is by far the nicest place we found. Every staff member is equally kind and caring, the nurses are fabulous. Everyone has the resident’s best interest at heart.
They offer a lot of family activities and it always makes us feel welcome and comfortable. It is just a nice family atmosphere.
