Family Testimonials

We are always grateful to receive compliments and delighted to share some of these special kudos that came to us unprompted.

"I have been dining every Thanksgiving & Christmas at Anna Maria Creekside (now called The Springs at Anna Maria) for over 12 years. My mother lives at (The Springs at) Anna Maria and the meals are always very good on Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year on both occasions the meals have been exceptionally good. The quality of the food and the selection was great. The preparation was extremely timely and all food was warm and tasty. The wait staff was extremely friendly and spared no effort to make all of us comfortable. Some of the younger staff members started as early as 6am. The effort they put forth was not unnoticed. They are all to be commended. Hope is working extremely hard to make all our holiday experience the best it can be. She is always present to make sure everything runs smoothly, also to be commended. Keep up the good work, I can't wait until the next holiday to have a great feast! Your employees are the best!"

"I wanted to say hi and thank you again to each and every one of your staff at The Springs at Wilsonville; what you have done for my Uncle Mike is nothing short of an orchestrated miracle. You are all so very good at what you do and it really made all the difference in quality of life, for our family, for me, and most importantly for Uncle Mike. I feel that Mike passed through his final chapter like a King.

It is amazing how each of you plays an such an important part of so many families. Maybe you don’t realize with every meal that passes, or every bedtime they are tucked in safely, a small miracle takes place. To my family it was the peace of mind that Mike is independent, yet safe, clean and groomed, well feed with conscientious nutrition, had the best nursing, and personal enrichment to round out his full person care and all done with the utmost attention to decency and respect.

I know from the hours I spent there with your crew of angels, you have left your mark on this family and certainly everyone that passes through your doors."

"The first thing we noticed about The Springs was the positive, happy attitude that everyone had. Then we discovered that there were activities, for both men and women. There is the great weight room and swimming pool. There is the putting green with tournaments, There us music in the pub every Friday. Every activity that you can imagine is right here. The bus takes you shopping and to medical appointments, (no need to climb in as there is a ramp). Having been to other facilities and lived in another facility, nothing could compare to The Springs, Even our great grandsons want to live here. And when they thrown a party every month, they really know how to throw party! Did I mention the positive, happy attitude that everyone has?"

Sisters' Story of Joy

"Thank you for the amazing care you are giving our mother. She feels so comfortable in her home at The Springs at Mill Creek! She feels the caring every day. Best of all, she isn't afraid to ask for the help she needs -- a big step for Mom!

We also feel like we are all more relaxed! Mom is so happy and enjoys everyone there and all of the activities. She welcomes visitors, but not for too long, which we find to be funny because she doesn't like to disrupt her "schedule." Now, she prefers for us to come to her home (The Springs at Mill Creek), where she used to prefer us picking her up and taking her out for overnighters or to stay with us, her family.

We are doing everything possible to do what MOM wants to do and are realizing that she probably wanted to do this (move) for a long time while we were dragging her all over three states to be part of our lives. We now know that Mom must have been more isolated and lonely than we knew.
Again, thank you to everyone at The Springs! She feels known, cared for, acknowledged. She feels great camaraderie. Sometimes she lives in the past, but now looks to the future.

The Springs at Mill Creek was love at first sight for Mom.

I would also like to add that Toni (the executive director) at The Springs at Mill Creek is such a personal gal. She knows EVERYONE, and she has been a joy in Mom's life. After Mom's first week living there, Toni called and let us know that Mom was the most well-adjusted "newbie" at The Springs! It meant so much! Mom has been nothing but excited about her new life there. She feels like she lives in a plush hotel and, with all of the daily activities, thinks she is on a cruise.

We are so happy for our mom, Joyce. We call her "Re-Joyce" now as she has stepped away from grieving over my dad's death, moved out of her old lonely house of 66 years and embraced her wonderful new life."
