Family of resident

“Thank you for allowing Mom to have her friend in to join for lunch today! It was a sweet moment for them to have special time together. My sibling just phoned me to share how impressed they both were with Vitality right from the moment they walked in the door. My mom’s friend raved about the great lunch and attention all the way home. I have given your name to two other families as well. Thank you again for your kindness today. It was greatly appreciated!”

Daughter of resident
