Family thankful for care of mother

The family of Lila Frodel would like to thank the staff at Messenger House on Bainbridge Island for their care of our loved one for the past two and a half years.

We were kept up to date with a phone call or personal contact every time something changed in her situation or care protocol. We were in and out of Messenger House often enough to really sense the warmth and caring that went into their handling of Mom’s needs and appreciated their patience on those days Mom wasn’t feeling like being particularly polite to folks.

One doesn’t always know how things will go when one suddenly must choose from a limited list of care facilities where to have a family member stay. We have no regrets about Messenger House being the place Mom ended up staying. We feel their priorities were the patients in their care and they did a good job with our feisty centenarian.

Thanks again, Messenger House!
