Senior Care in Los Angeles since 1989

I Am Not Sure If We Met Before, But I Am Sherrie Na***in, Lucille Ga***in’s Daughter And I Live In New York Although My Brother Robert Dealt With You On Financial Matters, And On Most Issues Of My Mother’s Care, I Wanted To Tell You How Grateful I Am That My Mother Was At Carmel And That Bobby Arcangel Was Her (And Our) Angel.

I Know That She Received The Best Care Possible At Carmel. Somehow You Have Managed To Put Together All The Right Ingredients For Outstanding Care Of The Elderly. The Use Of A Small Home, The High Standards Of Cleanliness, The Availability Of Transportation, The Loving And Devoted Staff, And The Excellent Physical Plant All Have Made Carmel A Model For Elderly Care.

Whenever I Spoke To My Mother, Whether By Telephone Or In Person, She Always Said That She Was Fine. And Despite Her Dementia, I Think She Felt Fine And Well Cared For. And Despite Her Incontinence, She Always Looked And Smelled Fresh And Clean. Actually, The Entire House Had The Air Of A Private Home, Not That Of A Nursing Home That Blasts You With A Combination Of Unpleasant Odors And The Strong Smell Of Bleach.

My Mother’s Visits Out For Family Occasions Were Always Treated By Staff As Big Occasions, With My Mother Dressed, Coiffed And Manicured Appropriately.

My Telephone Calls And My Visits Were Never Treated As Intrusive, Even When I Gave My Usual 40 Minutes Notice Before Arriving At The Front Door. I Was Told To “Just Walk In” Whenever I Visited, And I Did.

In Mid-August Our Son, Daughter In Law And Their Two Boys, In Los Angeles On Vacation From Their Home In Virginia, Came To See “Nana.” Bobby Wheeled My Mother Onto The Back Patio. My Mother Visited With Avishai, One Of Her Eleven Great Grandchildren, For The First Time. And Avishai And His 5 Year Old Brother Julius Had Much Fun Running Around In The Backyard. I Was Grateful That All This Could Happen In Such A Comfortable Setting.

I Want To Mention Also, That Susan Was Always So Helpful And Always So Pleasant.

I Will Miss My Mother Terribly. I Will Also Miss The Warm And Welcoming Visits On Tyrone Avenue. My Husband, Larry, Joins Me In Sending You This Letter.

With Much Appreciation,

Sherrie N**in
