Dear Twin Oaks Staff,
There are not enough adjectives in the dictionary to express our gratitude for taking such great care of our Karen. From the very first time I saw Rho Ann talking to Karen and her daughter with such compassion; I knew that she would be coming to a very special place. I thank you and all of your amazing staff for caring for Karen. I especially want to thank you for allowing me to sop by so often to bring snacks, etc.
Your staff is such a blessing. I say first hand almost on a daily basis the kindhearted assistance Karen received from all of you.
Our family so appreciates the empathizing that all of you gave Karen. This growing old is not an easy process. All of you understand and make this time in one’s life not only bearable but actually fun. The smiles that I encountered by all of your staff, from the cleaning ladies, the cafeteria workers, the maintenance men, the incredible nursing staff made me cry at times when I would get back in my car after visiting Karen. You all deserve much more money than you make. I am happy that I was able to do some photography for you to capture those fun, incredible smiles on everyone at your marvelous parties!
But it isn’t about that. All of you are devoted to giving these fortunate people a joyful, faithful life. You have shown all of my family what true devotion means and all of you do that every day.

This past year my mom lived at Twin Oaks Assisted Living. We call it the “Miracle of Twin Oaks”. She loved everything thing about Twin Oaks, most importantly the staff and residents….and so did we! It was her heaven on earth. Every day she looked forward to one event after another, whether it was a group singing songs from the “50s”,….. firemen visiting and providing a hotdog lunch,…. children sharing Valentines,….July 4th celebration,….going to crafts and ceramics,…. folding napkins in the dining room (and getting paid for her hard work with a bag of Cheetos)…..my Mom was very happy, and she was living a fulfilled life. She was so proud of her apartment, especially when RhoAnn would bring potential new residents to view it. My Mom would proudly kid around with Jill and me and say she was waiting to receive her commission check. The location of her apartment was ideal. She would sit outside, across from the nurses’ station, and greet and gab with everyone walking by. After her passing, several residents said, “that corner will never be the same.” To Rho Ann, Tracey, Jennifer and all the other special individuals from Twin Oaks…… “Thank you for providing these blessings to my Mom”.
Dear Twin Oaks Family & Staff,
Thank you for all the love, care and support you’ve shown our mother and family over the last six years. It’s comforting to know true caregivers such as all of you and we couldn’t have managed the last several years without the help of each and every one of you.
You are all truly a blessing!
Love Fred, Sue and the Wood Family.
To our Twin Oaks Family,
We want to thank you all for making Mom and us feel so special. We were truly fortunate and blessed to have such a loving and caring staff looking after her.
A special thank you to Mary Ann Huber and family, Tim, Mary Beth and the rest of your incredible staff. Please know we appreciate and are very grateful for everything.
To all the staff,
I was so proud to tell everyone Mom was living at Twin Oaks. It is because of each one of you. Thank you for treating your “residents” like family. I got to know some of you better but never did I see anything but LOVE and CARING from all of you.
Thanks for all you personally did for Mom. You will always be in my heart.
To Our Twin Oaks Family,
We just wanted to say thank you for everything you did for mom. She loved being a part of the Twin Oaks Family. You all made it possible for her to have her own place again and she really loved being there and she loved all of you. We sure are going to miss you all but we will make it a point to stop by and visit every now and then.
Thanks to each of you individually for your unique contributions to my dad’s life over the past 7 years. He truly adored Twin Oaks and especially the staff. Thanks to those people I don’t know by name who visited him while he was in the hospital during his roughest time. He loved to have visitors. Each of you played a special role in his life and I will be eternally grateful for your care and compassion.
I wanted to take this opportunity to express my heart-felt thank you to you, your family, and the terrific staff at Twin Oaks. When looking for a place for mom to move to, it felt “like home” the moment we stepped into the lobby of Twin Oaks and that’s exactly what it became for mom. So many fun events and so many cherished memories that it is difficult for all of us to say goodbye.
I wanted to write you and everyone at Twin Oaks, to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for everything you and your staff has done for my father. The care he received while there is second only to the wonderful friendships he made during his stay. I only wish it could have been longer. Returning to his “second-home” doesn’t seem likely at this time, but if God grants him better health, I will make sure he returns to Twin Oaks.
My dad has been at Twin Oaks for over three years now. What a blessing this has been for him and for our family. Being there has allowed him to be in the only town that is familiar to him, and more importantly, close to my sisters who can check on him frequently.
Twin Oaks has become Dad’s home, where he feels safe and secure. Since it is not possible for any of us to care for him full time, we are ever thankful that he is so well cared for in your facility. And after looking at other facilities, we all know how blessed we are to have him there.
I know that caring for the elderly is a difficult, challenging job. I admire you and your staff for the excellent job you do in caring for the people entrusted to your care. It is truly a vocation, and a gift that you have been given.
We all felt at Christmas that Dad may not be able to stay at Twin Oaks any longer. Your willingness to give him a chance to stay means so much to us.
I pray that Dad will be able to continue to make Twin Oaks his home for a long time. And I pray for you and your staff that you continue to have perseverance and satisfaction in your chosen wor
