My parents moved into Hawthorn Park 8 years ago. My father passed away 5.5 yrs ago and my mother lived alone since. Hawthorn has been great for my mom. She has been very well supported by staff and has made a new best friend. It has also been great for my sister and myself as it is very reassuring for us having her at Hawthorn Park. Hawthorn Has taken very good care of mom and they are very good at advising me if there are any concerns they have about mom.
The staff are exceptional and very accommodating to any special requests that we have had.
I would highly recommend Hawthorn Park as a friendly and safe place for their loved ones.
Before moving to Hawthorn Park, I was having health issues. I lived in a small community away from the specialists & their hospital facilities. Covid-19 engulfed the world & life as we knew it was in lock down with social isolation, vaccinations & masks required.
My world suddenly changed when my condo sold (not listed!) I had to move my retirement residence appointments forward to be moved in less than 1 month. Yes, moving to a retirement community entail downsizing all the “stuff” I had collected over the years. I had to look at all the positives of being where I needed to be. The opportunities for activities, socialization & volunteering opened again. You can be as active as you wish. I just had to learn to pace myself. My dog Mr. Shaker & I enjoy socializing, but we also love our quite time too.
My move to Hawthorn Park means I have invested in my mental & physical health. The fellow residents become your family here. I really enjoy having someone else cook my meals for me. The staff put that dreaded fitted sheet on my heavy mattress. I get to play & be entertained. I am now living in “heaven on earth” here at Hawthorn Park amongst the “angels” who are the staff & management of Hawthorn Park.
