I sure want to thank you (and all of your crew) for all that you've done to work with my father and to try to help and encourage him to make Elderhaus a part of his daily routine. Mostly, though, I must pat you on the back for what you continue to do. In these times of budget shortcomings and medical system meltdown -- within our fine society where many elders are parked and forgotten in “full-care rest homes” -- your very big/little place of work is a breath of fresh air, and a flash of comforting light for many families. You have got to be very proud of what you all accomplish there.
