The elders really do feel like the other elders are their family. They worry when they are sick, they try and cheer them up when they are sad, and they rejoice with them when they are happy.
My mother has had excellent care at The Green House Cottages for 5 years now. The caregivers and staff are compassionate, patient, and loving to her. Her cottage is clean and well maintained, as well as her private room and bathroom. We are truly blessed to have them and this facility available for us.
I love working at The Green House Cottages of Southern Hills! I look forward to coming to work every morning and seeing the smiles on the elders’ faces. It’s like having extra grandparents around. We are all a family here. We all have a very special bond with our elders. I believe in everything we are doing to support culture change, so much so, that I brought my own grandmother here. I get to see her every day when I work, and I know when I’m not there, all of her needs are met. Our team is so caring, that I know she is never without anything but the best. She is doing better here than she has in the past couple of years before she came. This place brings happiness to our elders, and they thrive here. It is a beautiful thing to be a part of.
I live in Wilson Cottage. I moved here about three years ago I suppose. I really enjoy living here, it’s like home. If you don’t like it here, something is wrong with you, not the company. I enjoy living here, I don’t have to cook, I don’t have to clean dishes, I don’t have to clean my house, all I do is make my bed and take a shower, the rest is up to the group. I enjoy the company and the visitors who come to visit here, I enjoy being with the staff, they all seem to enjoy being with me and I have learned to love all of them. It’s nice to be here and I want to thank you all for helping me and getting me out of my depression. Thank you. I enjoy the activities and I have taken up coloring for adults and I enjoy doing it, it settles my nerves and everyone seems to enjoy seeing them. It is very calm and relaxing and I wish everyone would take up that project. The food is excellent here, they do a real job with the menus and presentation and we can eat all we want or not if we want it.
