"We would like to thank you all for taking such excellent care of our parents. When Mom developed Alzheimer's, we started on a scary, sad and devastating journey, uncertain of what the future would hold. With much faith in God and in his guidance we made it through day by day. Our journey was brightened by Kemper House. We are very glad that mom and dad were able to live together at Kemper. All of you - caregivers, nurses, support staff and administrators - took such good care of them and always made us feel welcome. You became our Kemper Family - our home away from home. "
"Thank you also for the very touching and beautiful memorial service and luncheon honoring Mom and Dad. It meant a lot to us to have all of you share your remembrances of them. We miss our parents so much. We also miss Kemper House and seeing all of you. May God continue to bless and guide you in your important work. " -Marianne & family
"We greatly appreciate all that you have done for my Dad and for us. Your compassion, dedication, and gentle ways were a tremendous help. No one ever said to us, "It will be okay," instead you said "We'll help you." You truly are angels, and I don't know how we would have gotten through to this point without you. "
"I want to thank you and everyone at Kemper House for all of your efforts to make my father's stay with you as comfortable as possible. I have nothing but positive things to say about the care given to my father and the quality of your facility. Your staff works so hard at making the residents comfortable and, for that, you have to be applauded. Please let everyone know how much my father and I appreciated everything they did to help him over the years. Alzheimer's and dementia are formidable foes and they strip the individuals stricken of all of their dignity, yet you and your staff work diligently to reinstate the dignityand you do it quite successfully. " -Joseph
"Thanks to the staff for your ongoing care of my Dad. Your patience, kindness and caring for Dad help my Mom and I rest easy knowing he is in good hands at all times. Thanks for everything you do for him! " -Sue
"On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to express our deep gratitude and thanks to you for caring for Jane for 3 1/2 years and for the love you've extended her. Slowly losing mental and physical capabilities with no hope of stopping the process is a devastating reality to the patient and the family. Yet you, the staff of Kemper House Mentor, did everything in your power to make it easier on her and us, both physically and emotionally. You offered gentleness, understanding, sensitivity and love. I remember many occasions how a hug or some comforting words made me able to overcome my sorrow after a particularly difficult visit. I also witnessed many occasions when your love and comforting made Jane feel better and diffused her anger and frustrations with her diminishing functionality. I hope that all of you are very proud of being members of an elite group, the Kemper House family, and we appreciate and thank you for all you have done for her. " -Al
"I want to take the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful care you gave my dad the last 5 1/2 months of his life. If he couldn't be at home with my mother, you were the next closest thing. " -Barbara
"This is to thank you and all the Kemper staff who organized the memorial service last Friday. The content was perfectly appropriate and many of the participants expressed compliments to the kitchen staff for the great luncheon. You probably heard the feedback that several people said they would choose Kemper House for themselves if the need ever arose. " -Eric
"Thank you so much for the loving care and compassion you showed to our mother and to us during her stay and death. We know, she was not the most compliant person, buy you showed her the same loving care no matter what. We were blessed to have her in your care. You are truly all angels. Thank you again! " -Ann
