“I am writing to thank you for the six years of caring and love experienced by my late mother at Hawthorne Inn. Mom had an outstanding quality of life and support of a caring staff. … We are so happy Mom was able to celebrate her 100th birthday at the Inn. She made many friends and had happy memories. My family enthusiastically recommends the Hawthorne Inn, and would be happy to talk to anyone who is considering your facilities. “

“I am pleased to take this opportunity to thank each and every caretaker at MorseLife for providing 3½ years of quality care for my mom. She loved life and she loved her aides, nurses, nurse practitioner, social worker, recreational therapist and everyone on the 4th floor … I thank MorseLife for all the wonderful days and years they helped my mother enjoy her life to the fullest capacity. Mom’s comfort level was extraordinary and she tried to help other residents acclimate to their surroundings away from their former homes.”

“A very sincere heartfelt thanks to everyone at Macclenny Nursing and Rehab Center. I was there twice in the last eight months and both times I received the best of care. I also got a ‘behind the scenes’ look at just how dedicated and devoted the staff is to the everyday care and comfort of the residents. Their hearts are in their work. Also, I was blessed with many new friendships. God bless you all.”
