My parents came to live at Whitecliffe 11 years ago following Dad’s hospitalization. Dad’s mobility issues did not allow him to return home to live and as Whitecliffe is physically accessible, they were able to live together independently in their own apartment until my Dad’s death. With the support and caring from the staff, Mom continued to live in their one bedroom apartment independently for several years enjoying the activities and programs offered and company of other residents.
With deteriorating physical and mental health, Mom moved to the “Terrace” (assisted care) in 2006 and has had great care and attention from the wonderful 4th floor staff for many years. As her independence decreases, she receives more support where required and is always encouraged to do as much as she can for herself maintaining her sense of dignity. With encouragement from the staff she continues to maintain her level of activity by attending the programs provided at Whitecliffe.
The staff are loving and caring and very aware of my Mom’s needs. They provide support for me at difficult times and are available readily. My Mom is safe and well cared for at Whitecliffe giving me peace of mind knowing she is there.
