What Our Patients are Saying
My mother is a resident at Presence Saint Andrew Life Center. The last year and a half of her life have been so very difficult - multiple health problems, moving to a new place and giving many of her possessions. My sister and I did a lot of research and visited other places and finally decided on Saint Andrew Life Center. The location was convenient for us to visit often and the staff was professional and kind.
While at first Mom was homesick and scared, now she calls it home. She loves the food, her room, and most importantly the staff of nurses, CNAs and others that help take care of her. She gets help getting to and from meals and activities, getting dressed, to showers and keeping her room neat and tidy.
It's such a blessing for me and my family to know that when we can't be there, caring and dedicated people are taking care of Mom. We visit many times a week and the facility is always clean, my Mom is always clean and cared for. Most staff members even know us by name and always share a smile. Thank you Saint Andrew Life Center for making it your priority to take such good care of our loved ones.
