“I was made very aware of how special the staff is. Everyone – the nurses, the aides, the cleaners and laundry workers, the maintenance men! All day long I heard cheery voices engaging the residents in the hallways, greeting them by name. I saw smiles and respect and particularly patience. I kept thinking “they are all angels”. I know that your employees are well trained, but I also think that it is in their nature to treat the residents as they do – and that GLL is very fortunate to have them.  The nurses and aides that tended to my mom during her last days were very kind and respectful of her and comforting to me and my family. I have nothing but praise for them. I thanked everyone as we went along, but I just wanted you to know my thoughts about your wonderful employees and hope that somehow you can pass on the praise to them.”
