Jorge Pestana is nothing less than impressed with the care his mother is receiving at Maple Health Centre.

The local resident said the staff at the Home have “been amazing since day one” when his mother moved into the residence nearly 10 years ago. The staff have treated her very well and make her feel very comfortable, many taking the time daily to speak with her in Portuguese, her native language, as often as they can.

“What has impressed me recently is how the home and all the staff have been very proactive towards COVID-19 and put a plan of action into place early on, which I believe has made a huge difference in keeping everyone safe, including staff,” Mr. Pestana said. “For that I am extremely grateful.”

He wanted to show his appreciation to the second-floor staff for their dedication and courage to continue to provide the highest quality of care to residents like his mother under these unique circumstances.

Mr. Pestana recently sent the staff a gift certificate to purchase a pizza lunch.

“Although it was a small gesture on my part, I wanted to treat the staff,” he said. “I hope they enjoyed and know how much our family appreciates them.”
