To the Editor,
Caring for elderly parents. "It's the circle of life."
I want to extend an enormous thank you to the staff of Grace Cottage at Serra Village. The leadership of Rhonda Quattrochi and Vicky Peckens is to be commended as well as the outstanding care and support of the staff at Grace Cottage.
Making the decision to place a loving elderly parent, taking them out of their home and familiar surrounds for their safety to a nursing facility is at best tormenting and a challenge but the folks at Serra Village Grace Cottage made the transition for Mom very comforting.
They provided a safe and nurturing community.
Their staff and residents are friendly and helpful. You can search the Internet on elder-care, communicate with supportive friends and family all you want however it will never prepare you for the heartache of witnessing a loving parent suffer a massive stroke seven years ago, face its harsh consequences and just plain grow older.
It is a tremendous asset to the area to have such a facility that can assist your loved ones; they are there for you and yours.
Again, thank you Serra Village Grace Cottage.
