Letter to the Editor-Timmer

Editor This is written to give the town of Gladbrook a huge congrats! My dad has been a resident in the dementia unit as Westbrook Acres for the past two years and my mom has been there for six months. I have never been so impressed with the care, activities and meals that Westbrook has! All of the staff is polite and friendly and have the utmost respect for a patients privacy! My dad just passed away there February 28 and I think everyone that worked there called, texted or stopped in to wish pappa/grandpa goodbye and left crying. Unfortunately we had to move my mom so she’s closer to us-believe me, it was an extremely hard decision…we only hope she gets the care she had in Gladbrook. Hats off to the help-rarely do you see a nursing home that has longevity in the help. From the bottom of our hearts-THANK YOU for the last two years and for new friendships!! Family of Georgie C.
