Kemper House is locally owned and operated by the Kemper Family, lifelong residents of the Cleveland area. We are committed to a different way of caring, because for us, this is personal! Our family has been personally affected by Alzheimer’s for generations.
Our experience has proven that a singular focus on memory care is immensely beneficial to people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. We value the uniqueness of each resident, celebrate their individual abilities, and foster personal dignity through every stage. At Kemper House, we don’t just say it, we do it and we live it!
Talk to Me: By Carol Sereix
Talk to Me is a compilation of some of the best stories and poems, written by Kemper House residents over the last 15 years. Talk to Me was produced by Carol Sereix, Kemper House’s ecumenical minister. The book brings hope and inspiration to all those that have or know someone who has Alzheimer’s Disease or related dementias.
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.
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!
Every time my family visits each week for their porch visit mom looks FABULOUS! You and your whole organization really understand what to do with the residents and I have seen an amazing change. You are a blessing to our family.
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 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.”
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.
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.
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.
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!
