I really have to congratulate you and your entire staff, on being very efficient, courteous, helpful, and very, very friendly. I can leave to go back to Texas with a peace of mind that my mother is in safe, and very good hands. Thank you all once again, a very heartfelt thank you. I will see you again very soon.
Ellen Hardy, daughter of Stonebrook Village resident
When my father decided he was ready to move into an assisted living community, he chose Stonebrook Village in Windsor Locks. Both he and I could not be happier with his choice. Everything about Stonebrook has exceeded our expectations.
I live 2,000 miles away, but visit frequently. During my visits, I make use of one of the Stonebrook guest rooms and take most of my meals with the residents. This has given me an opportunity to sample the daily happenings at Stonebrook first hand over the course of a year.
The apartments and common areas are bright, clean and well appointed. The food and dining service is more than satisfactory. The activities calendar is always full with a variety of activities each day for the residents’ enjoyment and socializing. Transportation is readily available for field trips, shopping and doctors appointments.
The Stonebrook nurses and nurses’ aides provide my father with excellent care. Since moving in; his daily care needs have increased. The nursing staff have been alert to his changes and responded accordingly.
Over the course of my visits, I came to realize early on that what makes Stonebrook Village exceptional is that it truly is a community. I observed that the entire staff, from the Director to the housekeepers treat each resident with compassion and respect and as the individuals they are. Furthermore, I discerned a very high degree of socialization, caring and friendship between the residents. I don’t exaggerate when I say it feels like one big family when I visit.
Without reservation, I can wholeheartedly recommend Stonebrook Village to anyone seeking an assisted living community.
When my mom’s ability to continue to live in her own home became problematic, a good friend urged me to read Being Mortal. As well as it being a powerful and engaging book in its own right, the concept of focusing on purpose and meaning–as defined by the elder her or his self–resonated powerfully with me. I learned that many places use the designation “assisted living” but were really primarily nursing homes. Gawande visited several places that had worked hard to create communities where seniors of varying levels of dependency could age in place. When I read about and visited Stonebrook, it was clear it was exactly the kind of “place that is right” for a grand lady like my mom. The whole Vozzola family is deeply grateful to have found such a caring community for mom.
All best and profound thanks to you all! – Elly
