Kind Words from our Community
Remembering Mr. Wrenn
Our commitment to our residents is evident in the person-centered care we provide every day at Forest Hills. That care, however, is not always seen by our community -- and though we do not need recognition in order to do good work, it is always nice when we receive it. The following note was sent to us after a memorial service for a Forest Hills resident, and it is shared with permission from the author:
Dear Forest Hills staff,
Thanks so much for the lovely event you all contributed to, organized and participated in. Everyone overcame various hurdles at various times to make the event really special. It was a fitting sendoff for someone who also emerged from years of solitude and some bitterness to become the wonderful man he could be. Forest Hills' environment of kindness, care and individual attentions really nourished Gayle Wrenn's spirit. I think many of us are grateful for the harmonious convergence of good will and warm efforts that made the last days of his life very special. It was also very special for me who had known him for several years, mostly in his dungeon times, to see his evolution to someone special and beloved by many.
