“The heart that gives thanks is a happy one, for we cannot feel thankful and unhappy at the same time.” -Douglas Wood
We are so thankful for the incredible residents, family members, and associates who make our community such a warm and supportive place to call home. Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at The Villas of Oak Park!
Staff at The Villas of Oak Park recently received some heartwarming thank you notes from our residents, which we always love!
This note was sent by one of our resident couples:
“We are so grateful for the work you do and for your diligence during this past year. We appreciate the risk you all take for yourselves and your families when you come to work each day and care for us. Your smiles and your helpfulness mean a lot. May you have a joyful holiday and God bless each of you!” -Jon and Rita S.
We focus on making a difference in the lives of our community members every day, and we’re so happy to hear when it shows. Thank you so much for the kind, thoughtful words, Jon and Rita!
Our Residence Director, Terri Pratt, received another letter of gratitude from one of the newer community members here at The Villas of Oak Park:
“I wanted to thank you for all you do to keep our residents and staff safe during this crazy time. Not many people realize how stressful it must be for you as a manager to remain calm, handling day-to-day COVID challenges along with your regular duties and responsibilities without ever stumbling as you face each hurdle.
I couldn’t have moved into The Villas at a more complicated time. Due to COVID safety regulations, it’s very difficult to socialize, get to know my new neighbors, and re-establish relationships with so many old friends in the community. However, I’ve been handling the transition quite well, and I attribute much of that to you and the entire staff. I especially include Jamie in that group.
Thanks to everyone’s efforts I always feel informed and very safe here. I am so grateful that you all have made me feel so comfortable and welcome. Thank you, again, for caring!” -Jeanne C.
Thank you so much for the kind, thoughtful words, Jeanne! We understand how difficult it is to transition to a new home, especially during these unprecedented times. We do everything we can to make joining our community as safe, smooth, and comforting as possible. We are SO glad to hear you are feeling comfy and welcome here at The Villas!
