We would like to share with you what our residents, their families and employees have to say about Cypress Place Senior Living:
A Poem for a New Year
By Laura Bond, Cypress Place Resident
We've had a Merry Christmas
In this place I now call home.
I'm grateful for each day I wake
And know I'm not alone.
The people here were strangers
To me when I first came;
And now I call them family
I think they feel the same.
We share our fears and sorrows
And turn them into cheer.
So many things we're thankful for
That we have found right here.
And together we'll find comfort
As we face each setting sun.
And the New Year brings a promise
Of better days to come.
And when a friendly greeting
Puts a smile on someone's face
I know I'm happy to be living
Here at Cypress Place.
"I want to tell you how much I appreciate Cypress Place and the loving care that my mom is receiving. All of the caregivers are so kind and give my mom personal care. I especially appreciate the two Pat's who work in Generations. They are wonderful." - Beverly C
"It is with great pleasure that Jim and I are writing this letter. We have been residents of your wonderful organization for almost two months. During that time we have come to love our new life at Cypress Place. Never have we been treated with more respect, and common courtesy. Your staff goes out of their way to see to our every need. Every contact we have with them is an experience beyond belief. It seems their entire daily goal is, 'how can I make your stay here more enjoyable?' They are always asking, 'In what way can I enhance your life?' This is so refreshing compared to the service and treatment we often get in today's world. You and your staff seem to have created the ambiance of a truly caring community. A community where people truly care about each other emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Not an easy task. Congratulations to you and all the wonderful people working at Cypress Place. You all have succeeded in accomplishing what many others can only wish for. Because of you Cypress Place is a warm, loving, comfortable place to live. GOOD JOB!!!!!" - Gwin and Jim M
"A very special thank you to you and your staff for a wonderful birthday. The food was wonderful. The service was perfect. The cake made by Victor was perfect. I had six outside guests and they were so impressed. My 80th birthday was just great. I have lived here two years and I love it here." - Larry T
"Many thanks to you and your staff for a wonderful buffet on Sunday night. The Navy Vets were thrilled with the last evening of their 3-day reunion - Cypress Place setting, food and service were just perfect." - Pat H.
"To say thank you is not enough. Don and I really appreciate what you did for us on such short notice. Your home is beautiful - you run Cypress Place like a Real TEAM. From the caregivers, office staff, your excellent chefs and dining room personnel, house cleaning, to the maintenance personnel. We enjoyed our stay!" - From, Pat and Donald S.
"Thank you for making my grandmother's 80th birthday a special celebration. Jose, Hank and Victor were exceptionally kind, generous and gracious. They are becoming like family and we appreciate them all." - J.D. Smith
"I want to give a commendation to Irma and her staff for making Claude's birthday, June 29, such a memorable event. The eight people in the guest dining room all remarked on the great food and excellent service. I'm always amazed at the staff's caring and loving attitude toward residents. They just terrific!" - Lurie S.
"One of Elzada's final requests was to make sure that her sincere gratitude to everyone is acknowledged. She was so thankful for all of the loving support and friendship extended to her. Mom came to Cypress Place after 50 years in her own home and she was very reluctant to start over in a strange setting with no friends. However, from her first day here she was welcomed with open arms and befriended by many. Especially the dining room, housekeeping and maintenance staff. Over the last 4 years you all became an extension to her family and she was grateful for each of your friendships. The family cannot express in words our gratitude to everyone for watching over our dear Mother and enlightening her every day with encouraging words and tender support. Our most sincere thanks." - Terry and Gerry S and Family
"My family and I would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the administration and staff of Cypress Place Senior Living in Ventura for the excellent care you gave to our father and his wife during the short time they lived in your independent facility. Their comments to me were always about how friendly and caring each and every member of your facility was from the beginning of their stay. The cooks and waiters made each meal special and cheerfully accommodated our father's special requirements. They never failed to greet my father and his wife by name and always had time to chat. From the women who cleaned, the maintenance workers who attended to every need, Cathy and Noell at the front desk and Sarah, who made their stay one of peace and happiness..., we say a big 'THANK YOU!'" - Anonymous
"I visited them often in their Cypress apartment and was always extended the same smiles and friendliness that seems to permeate your facility. I wish their stay with you could have been longer, but you made the last months of their lives richer for the experience. Thank you again to everyone in your organization. You provide a wonderful service to the elderly of our society and also help lift the emotional strain each family experiences when caring for loved ones. Because of Cypress Place Senior Living our family was able to enjoy the last few months of our parents' lives together in harmonious and peaceful surroundings. We will never forget you." - Judy S and family
