My family and I are so proud to have found a home for mother at Hollander.
What a great team.
The day I met Sheila McArdle at Hollander Senior Living, our friend Kate Shilling’s life would take a turn for the better. Having just lost her beloved husband Lou, Kate was not only facing his untimely death, but also the lost of her home and of a precious pup named Tallee.
She offered Kate a lovely new home, where our friend would be welcomed and made comfortable as she discovers friendships among the other residents and also with the caring staff at Hollander. Every day, Kate participates in activities including morning coffees, bingo games, and afternoon lemonade visits.
Today, Kate said to us, “Did you ever think I would survive without my Lou?”
In all honesty, I did not.
“You’re doing remarkably well,” I responded. “I’m so proud of you,”
Kate was my high school English teacher. Once again, she teaches me. This time, she’s showing me how to accept change and move forward in an amazingly positive manner.
We ended our pleasant conversation, because the ever-thoughtful Sheila offered Kate a tiny kitten to pet.
“Luckily it wasn’t a puppy,” said Kate. “I would have kept it!”
Hollander is special, because it offers seniors a new lease on life. Like Kate Shilling, my husband and I are most thankful for this wonderful place.
My Mother has been at Hollander for the past four years. She has always been treated with respect and kindness throughout those years.
When she was recently put under hospice care I was afraid she would no longer get to stay at Hollander.
Thankfully, they have continued to care for her and have gone beyond the necessary requirements for assisted living. My Mother has a wonderful relationship with the staff and tells me everyday how much she loves them and I witness their love for her all the time.
Thank you to the great management and staff for taking such good care of my Mom.
