"I hope you know how
much Dad appreciates
the excellent care
he receives from you!"

—Peggy Jamerson, Resident Family Member

"Hey, this is a nice place! It's so
clean! My dad is starting to get
forgetful. It would be great if he
could live here."

—Visiting EMT

"Please express to the staff
how appreciative my mother is
of all the staff, and the help
they provide to her. She wouldn't
get along nearly as well
without the caring
and concern of the Daystar
employees!"

Jason Hart, Resident's Son

I'm so grateful to be at
Daystar, it gets me out
with other people that think
like I do, instead of
sitting in my room.

- Betty, Daystar Resident

"Wow! What a lovely place!
It's so homey and you can
tell people are loved and
cared for here."

—Brenda Oliver, Visiting RN

"She has received such kindness
and so much attention from
everyone that we know without a
doubt that she is safe and well
cared for. We have great trust in
everyone at Daystar and could not
wish for a better place for our
mother. Thank you and thank you
to all concerned."

"Mom is very happy with her
new apartment and the services
she is receiving. Thank you
all for helping us in
this transition."

The thing I like most about
living here is the many
pleasant and smiling faces
that I love!

What could be better?
Daystar is friendly and
homelike, we can do laundry
in our own apartment,
there is shopping across
the street, and there are
good neighbors!

- Helen, Daystar Resident

The staff is very caring
and responds quickly
and efficiently.

- Sharon, Daystar Resident

I want to let you know
about an exceptional employee

helpful, friendly, concerned,
compentent and a wonderful
caregiver! I always feel reassured
that whatever comes up, she'll
be able to handle everything.
