“Having visited Helga, I am impressed with her selection. She is in a community of people who care, staff and residents alike. There are plenty of opportunities for diversion, she can have visitors, and her cat. The food is delicious! Everything is clean. Jasmine and the dining room crew are patient and kind. Theresa, Sue, and Elbert are great. Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality and taking care of Helga!” Susan – Germany 

“Thanks for making my respite a time of renewal. I appreciate all your kind efforts to assist me and make me welcome. Take care and keep up the good energy.” Erika –  Florida

“I am a new resident here at Alderman Oaks and I have so many thoughts about this unusually lovely community. I feel compelled to write this note. The Executive Director (Rusty) is always caring and so compassionate with each and every resident. This alone is fine, but then to find the entire staff is exactly the same way, is unbelievable. The entire place is beautiful and immaculately clean. I love my home here! Thank you for making my life complete.” Betty – Florida
