My Mom has been my best friend, confidant and partner in crime since I was a kid. She has lived with me for the last 20 years, we traveled together and had a wonderful time. However, accepting that it was time for her to move into another home environment was really difficult. I was hysterical and cried to Tamara from Twin Cedars. She showed me such care and compassion that day, I knew this was the best place possible for my Mom. To this day, she remains sincere, caring and compassionate, to me and all the residents every day. Mom moved into Twin Cedars December 2017. I notice a lot when I visit my Mom. I see how the residents look, how they smell, I see how the staff members treat the residents and very important – I see how the residents react to the staff. I have said it before and I still say it today, I am so thankful they have a great staff. I know the heart of Twin Cedars begins with the owner, she really makes TC the wonderful place, a home. The staff is a direct reflection of that. They work very hard, I see it myself. They are so very good to the residents and joke and play with them. The whole feeling of TC is a very warm, caring and family environment. The staff has unending patience with me, my questions and some slightly over the top requests. On a great note, because of the care that my Mom has received over the last 10 months, I feel less protective and less worried as I know she is safe. I visit once a week and always feel welcome and happy there.
