Notes from resident members and their families
“After getting through this Covid-19 virus, I reflect on how thankful I am to be a resident of Edgewood Retirement Community. As a team, ALL departments at Edgewood went above and beyond to keep us safe and well taken care of. At the same time, we were always well-informed. It was obvious that the number-one goal was to keep the residents safe — doing whatever it takes. It took hard work and dedication from all of the staff. They all did an amazing job. It was a great feeling for my family to know that I was in good hands during this time. Thank you to all the staff of Edgewood for a job well done!” — Leonie R.

“I have thought so many times over the last weeks of how much better off I am living at Edgewood than if I were on my own during these trying times.

The sacrifices that the employees of Edgewood have made on our behalf are so, so appreciated. … Many, many thanks.” — H. Hart

“As a physician and surgeon [involved with treating and consulting on Covid-19 cases], I think that I have a very good perspective of the reality of the situation. When I Zoom with my old friends who live all over the country, they always ask about Mom and are very concerned …. I reassure them, praising all the steps that The Meadows staff has taken in a pro-active way and ahead of the powers that be. I tell them that she is in the safest place she can be — certainly safer than if living with me. When this crisis is nearing its end, I feel that the entire Meadows staff can hold their heads high in what they have accomplished.” —R. Altman, MD
“I would just like to thank everyone at The Meadows again for five weeks of wonderful care for my Mom. I don’t know what I would have done without everyone’s support!

With all the medical care and a lot of love she has come through! We are so lucky!” — J. Fraiser
