"Thank you so much for allowing me to present at the beautiful Colonial Poplin. I was truly honored to participate in such a lovely evening. The food was fabulous, the harp set a heavenly tone, and the folks that put it all together are the best...although I think the speaker may have been a little questionable! ;-)
I have been spreading the word how wonderful Colonial Poplin is and wish you had a sister facility closer to me as it would be my top choice if I were ever in need. Your establishment would just be a building if it were not for the exceptional people that is the true structure. Thank you for what you do, for who you are, and for bringing me to witness your lovely and warm home.
I look forward to remaining in touch. I do hope that you refer me to colleagues for other possible speaking engagements. May you all always have bountiful blessings on your doorstep.
Be well. Be kind. Be happy."

"On behalf of the family of Rita Nelson I send our heartfelt thanks to all of you for the beyond excellent care that you gave our Mom every time she was there. Not only was your medical care superlative, but your thoughtfulness, gentleness, compassion and kindness to our Mom and to us was more appreciated than we can ever express in words. Kim, we are particularly grateful to you for everything you did to help us and our Mom through such a difficult time. Your knowledge, wisdom, compassion and energy are remarkable. Corey, we were so impressed by your passion for the total well being of the residents in your care.
Your philosophy and support of natural environments for people as they age is heartwarming. Thank you for the amount of time you gave to our family. We have and will continue to highly recommend your wonderful facility to anyone who is looking for rehab or long term care. Thank you so very much."

"As we enter the season for "giving thanks" Steve and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the kindness, care, concern and respect you provided to Florence Brown during her stay at Colonial Poplin on two occasions this year, and prior to her passing in July.

We experienced great peace of mind during a difficult time, knowing she was being well cared for during her stays there. We appreciate that you all have a difficult job to do and that it takes very special individuals to provide the level of care she was given each and every day.

We truly appreciated you all taking the time to deal with our questions, take our phone calls, address our concerns, and in helping us to make difficult decisions by providing the information we needed to make them. And for always going above and beyond by holding our hands along the journey. We want you all to know, you DO make a difference and we are sincerely appreciative, of your service and for making the Brown family part of the Colonial family during Florence's stays.

With much appreciation,"

 - Deb, Steve and the entire Brown family

"Thank you is never enough. It is appropriate, however, for me to extend my gratitude to the wonderful staff of Colonial Poplin Nursing Home and Poplin Way Assisted Living. I have often said that it feels as though I have 50 siblings right around the corner. It is because of your caring, protection and affection for my father that he felt at home here. Know that he loved you all and felt secure in your care. It would take volumes to honor you individually; suffice it to say that each of you possesses a unique gift that she/ he brings to this place every day. Because of you, sons and daughters such as Alan and I can placed our loved ones inside these walls with confidence. May God richly bless each of you."

- Nancy L. ( Daughter of the late Warriner "Pete" Wade)

"I want to take this opportunity to express my thanks and appreciation for the excellent care and attention that my mother has been and is now receiving. All of the staff does a wonderful job of providing mother with the attention and care that she demands. She is not always easy to get along with and the nurses and other staff do a great job keeping her content. Please convey my sincere thanks to all personnel at Colonial Poplin for such excellent treatment and a job well done. Since I live a good distance away, it is comforting to know that Mom is in good hands with people that care."

- David H.
"On behalf of my sons and daughters-in-law, I wish to thank you for the wonderful care you gave my husband. From the great therapy, to the nursing and aide help I knew he was in great hands! Even maintenance helped by getting him a footstool and TV.

Thanks again. You have a very cheerful home. It's a comfort to have your loved one there."

- Phyllis G.

"My father and I appreciate all you have done to place him in such a lovely environment he can now call home. You treat the residents at Poplin Way with such warmth and friendliness, and I want you to know that it means so much to know that my father will be treated as family."

- Nancy

"I want to thank you for the time you spent with my brother and me last month. You and the good people at Colonial Poplin should be very proud of yourselves. Just in the one day I visited, I could tell that it was a very special place. God bless you for the work you do and the home you provide."

- Family of Fred B.

"Please thank everyone who took part in Dad's care during his final days. The care and kindness he received means more than you can imagine. From the moment he entered Colonial Poplin he was treated with dignity and compassion. You can truly be proud of your facility."

- Linda L.
"If I ever have to go to a nursing facility, it will certainly be Colonial Poplin. When you enter you just know you'd be happy and comfortable here. It is clean, neat and has a special country charm. The entire facility is awesome."

- Elsie Talanian , Salem Observer

"Words cannot express how deeply grateful we are for the care you provided our mother. She felt as though you were all a part of her family, something that brought her great comfort."

"You made us always feel like were coming into our Mother's home rather than an
institution and that we could come to you with any problem, which was handled promptly and professionally. Your facility, and especially the Staff, deserves the highest commendation."

"This world would be a much better place if all aging people could reside in a facility such as yours."

- The family of Marjorie Thompson

"When I think of the love all of your staff provided to our Mother, I cry. I cry for the knowledge that your staff gave to her what we as a family could have only wished for, and our wish came true."

- Lynn C.

"We would like to express our sincere thanks to you for participating in our Ellis School 9th grade, fifth annual Job Shadow Day. Your willingness to either try something that you may not have done before or your having our 8th graders back again, is commendable. Job shadowing is an academically motivating educational activity dedicated to giving students an opportunity to look at the world of work and how skills they are learning in school relate to the workplace.

Thank you for helping us to accomplish the goal of providing students with the link between school and the world of work. We look forward to a continued relationship with you in coming years."
