San Antonio Colonial Gardens Facility
December 7, 2012
One of the worst and most devastating situations a family can face is the realization that a loved one's Alzheimer's Disease has progressed to the point where the familiar home is not the best setting for the patient or for other willing, but exhausted and heart-broken family members. When that point is reached, it seems only grim choices exist. But that is not the case! Colonial Gardens is unlike any other care facility for dementia patients. It is like an oasis of hope, compassion, safety, and love in a vast desert of pain and frustration. We happened upon Colonial Gardens in 2010 when our dad could no longer remain in his home in Midland where he and our mom had lived together for over 50 years. We never dreamed there could be such a place! Each resident has a private room and restroom, and they can bring their own furniture. They are free to move around at all times - including into an enormous yard with big trees and walking paths. Delicious meals are cooked, in house. All daily care is provided, and there are no hidden or unexpected costs. However, after the initial positive introduction, the more critical blessings are soon revealed. The caregivers on the staff tend to each resident with the utmost kindness, respect, and humor. The residents are treated as individuals at all times, and the program meets their needs - as opposed to having them conform to a system. We never dreamed that our dad could or would make such a transition! Our fear and anxiety quickly evaporated. Not only did he adjust immediately, but he is content and happy when we visit. He says, "This is a good place." We are so grateful to have found Colonial Gardens, and to have these dedicated, professional, loving caregivers looking after our precious father and husband.

This is a GREAT facility. My mom is living here. The staff is very compassionate and easy to work with. The facility feels more like a home than an assisted living.

My mother has only been back a few days and already she is at ease and has a sense of contentment that she never had while in the hospital and rehab. Your employees just love on the residents and it shines through in the resident’s attitudes. Yesterday, we visited just after her lunch time and we sat and talked a while most of the residents moved to the living room. All at once my mother asked “Where is my group, I need to get with them.” We moved her to a chair in the living room and when we said goodbye, she just said “Thanks for coming by”. None of the “I need to go home” or “Don’t leave me here”.

We really appreciate your excellent care that my mother receives. I know that the way of thinking doesn’t come from the employee level but is an intentional standard set by the corporate office and mentored to your employees.
