Just wanted to drop you a note, and, again thank you for everything you & your staff do for my mom. Nothing you guys do ever goes un-noticed. When a person lives to be old, like my mom, many challenges occur, almost daily, and that’s just the way things seem to go. It’s not easy on you guys, and, also on us. But, we’re grateful that God has granted her many years, and along with my family, we just try & smother her with love and attention each & everyday, just like you guys. Anyway, in a world where many times people only hear complaints, I just want to be the opposite, and tell you how grateful we are to everyone at The Sholom Home. Wishing you & your family a wonderful, safe Holiday Weekend.

I’m writing to thank you again for all of your assistance with getting my dad settled at Sholom. His new surroundings and the care he is receiving exceeded my hopes. I appreciate, too, your sensitivity to this most sensitive family situation. I hope to see you often over the next weeks and months, but in the meantime, know of my gratitude for all you have done.

Our mother was discharged today from Shirley Chapman Sholom Home East. We would like to commend the nursing and support staff for their very high expertise. On behalf of our mother, we thank them sincerely for their competence and kindness. Best! Great care!

By now I'm sure you know that my Mom (or as some of the staff called her, "Root Beer Fritzie") died on Sunday night. The staff was wonderful and helped her pass comfortably and without pain. We were all there to hold her hand until her last breath and then some. I woke up this morning with a pit in my stomach because I had an awful feeling that something was not right with her obituary which appeared in this morning's Minneapolis paper. Sure enough, my fears were confirmed when I saw that one of the most important sentences was not there. I had done a few rough drafts and somehow while I was editing the final draft, this was omitted: "The family profoundly thanks and appreciates the tender care provided by Sholom Home Minneapolis/St. Louis Park Staff for the past 8 years." Please let everyone know how sorry I am about my mistake. I was able to get it corrected for the Star Tribune on-line version, Hodroff on-line, the Duluth paper, and the Jewish World, and tomorrow there will be a small notice in the paper with the addition. There are not enough words to say thank you for the loving and attentive care our mother received. She made it to age 98+ because of everyone at Sholom. We will stay in touch.

My dad, Henry, has been a resident at Phillips since mid-August. I wanted to write you a quick note to comment on the beautiful care he is receiving. I’m so pleased with his accommodations, the way he looks every time I see him, and the way the staff involve him in activities. They are johnny-on-the-spot if things are amiss, which I greatly appreciate. Both the social worker and the nurse commented when I ran into them yesterday that he seems to have settled in well now, and to be content. We couldn’t ask for more. We were blessed the Phillips had an opening when he needed to be moved from his assisted living facility, and we continue to be blessed by the way he is looked after. Please thank the staff on my behalf.

From a Sholom Social Worker

From a Sholom Social Worker: I just spoke with Richard F (his wife was here on hospice); he expressed that during their stay here at Sholom how excellent the care was and how good of an experience they had during his wife’s final days. He stated that he is sharing how wonderful we were and recommending us to others.

To everyone at Sholom Home East who made our dad’s final weeks as peaceful and comfortable as could be. His care was excellent. Thank you all so much.

Hello Joyce, We met last May, I think it was during your first week at work and my dad, John, was having a tour of the Vitality Center. Later we talked because my dad needed reminding to schedule his gym time, and you helped me arrange that with the staff. I have visited my dad twice in 2012, and I wanted to mention that he seems to be doing very well, and I think in large part it is due to the diligence of his “gym team”. They remind him to come, schedule his next appointment when he is with them and write it down on paper, they have him on 5 or 6 of the 8 machines. He is more stable and steady on his feet, he is maintaining agility. He feels good. I have noticed that my dad’s memory even seems to be improving. That is not likely, but the staff says it is probably due to the routine of the exercise. Just wanted you to know that your Vitality guys are doing a good job.

My mom was in your facility a year ago and I found it to be an extraordinary experience. Absolutely everything was perfect. The staff was exceptional and the facility absolutely superb.

We will never forget the warmth, love and attention given to our mother…from Knollwood to Roitenberg to Sholom Home Minneapolis/St. Louis Park. Our mother passed – she was taken from us in peace and dignity, aided by the wonderful Sholom Hospice (hyperlink to Hospice page) people!! Thank you – G-d Bless!

To the dear, caring people at Sholom that treated me with such TLC during my rehabilitation stay. I want to thank you all so much, I surely appreciated it. If I ever need care again, I'll know where to go.

Our family would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Sholom staff for the care and compassion that was provided to our father/grandfather while he was at Sholom. We are truly appreciative to all the individuals who offered care, compassion, company, an extra smile or a tender touch to our father. We are truly appreciative to all who routinely addressed him with understanding and patience. Although our father has been gone for some time now, our memories and our gratitude remain strong. Thank you.
