  • "I wish every one in residential care could have an “Altenheim experience.” "I cannot express enough thanks to the staff: always smiling, caring and going out of their way to be helpful. During Dad’s final days, I was overwhelmed by the many, many staff who stopped by to express their concern and love for him and to me. Your staff is fiercely devoted to the residents. I was truly astonished and moved. You’re doing a wonderful job".
