Testimonial: "Caring with love, kindness and professionalism..."
I placed my cousin at Silverado last October after she was diagnosed two years ago with a form of dementia called Frontal-Temporal Dementia, a particularly cruel form of memory impairment that, unlike Alzheimer's, targets a much younger population with symptoms that are behavioral, physical, and neurological.
The task of caring for those with severe memory impairment is monumental. Silverado executes their program with unyielding love and attention to the safety and well-being of every one of the residents, one that consistently rises to the highest level of professional industry standards. The management has continuously impressed me with their ongoing effort to improve upon their services. This is not an easy task. Watching the decline of someone you love with dementia is absolutely heartbreaking. If it wasn't for these kind and courageous caregivers at Silverado the task of practically caring for people like my cousin would be not only heartbreaking but impossibly disruptive to my personal well-being and those of my family. In short, I am deeply indebted to the nurses, caregivers and management at Silverado for assuming the burden and responsibility of caring for my cousin with such love, kindness, and professionalism. I honestly don't know what I would've done had they not stepped up to the plate. They are smart, committed and compassionate and deserve the highest level of praise for doing the good work that so few would otherwise choose to dedicate their lives to. They are a breed apart.
