Kudos! I wish to thank the staff and management of Beechtree Center for the fabulous Thanksgiving dinner on 11/18/17. I truly enjoyed it and from what I have heard the other residents and their families did as well. It was obvious that a lot of very hard work went into it and the staff looked like were enjoying also. It was quite an accomplishment in view of the fewer numbers of staff and it is wonderful to be able to comment on such a positive thing. To all involved, a big thank you from the heart!

The people at Beechtree are so friendly and the Activities Department do such a great job with the residents. They provide games, musical performances and church services. What I really like is that in the spring/summer the residents are taken outdoors to have BBQ’s and get to enjoy the nice weather.

“The safety protocols necessary to visit my Auntie today — my very first time to see her in nearly a yesr — were efficiently conducted with patience & understanding by the staff member in charge of this visit. I’m sorry that I don’t know the names of either staff member who assisted: It was Sunday, April 11 2021 @ 2:50PM if the helps to identify them for accolades.
We wete able to visit for over an hour — we were the only ones in the pleasant receprion area. It was so wonderful to see my Auntie.

Here are some observations — not complaints — but OBSERVATIONS:
There is a staff member present at all times, sitting about 6 ft away from the conversation station. I imagine this is for safety reasons — exclusively for the resident– to adjust the hearing devices, etc. The lack of privacy unhibits free conversation between resident & visitors — today, my Auntie’s daughter, my cousin, who is responsible for her care & well-being, & me. Any complaints, concerns, etc., expressed by my Auntie & responses have to be filtered to avoid any overt criticism of BT, treatments, care, etc. There should be some way that these concerns can be voiced freely. Also, while understandable from safety standards, the plexiglass barrier is, in fact a barrier to hearing clearly & talking lowly. We had to speak very loudly in order to be heard & understood. Again at the expense of privacy.
I’m happy for the visit, and found it so hard to ‘touch’ thru the glass, etc. Many tears.”
