Dear Carol Ann,
Just a note to say thank you to you and your staff.
There is not a day that goes by that we don't give thanks for all you do for us.
We couldn't ask for better care for mom and we are so grateful.

I hope that if you ever are in need of care you will be graced with loving people like yourselves to take care of you! With our deepest appreciation and love,

I Am So Thankful for Carol Ann’s Home
My mother has lived at Carol Ann’s for one year, and I am so thankful to have found this caring place for her. Carol is very professional, knowledgeable, and positive. Her staff is also great to work with. But more importantly, the staff has been good with my mother. Within a few weeks of my mother’s arrival, I saw an example of Carol’s generosity, caring attitude, and problem-solving. As with most new residents, the transition can be difficult, and my mother was no exception. She and I returned from a brief outing when we were told there was a surprise for her. You should have seen her face when she saw two parakeets in a cage next to her easy chair. It really touched my heart that Carol did that for her. I am always in touch with the staff and Carol regarding my mother’s health. I appreciate their being proactive and adaptive in dealing with changing health issues. This is a special place with special people. These special people include both the residents and the staff. There is so much more to this residence than I have mentioned above. I encourage you to give Carol a call and plan a visit.

Carol Ann’s Excellent Care
Since placing my mother and stepfather in the care of Carol Ann’s Home I have a much needed peace of mind and trust in the services provided. Carol Ann and her staff are compassionate, patient, and quite frankly worth their weight in gold. Thanks Carol Ann !!

Best Place in the World!
I wanted to drop by and say that I feel that Carol Ann is the sweetest woman I have ever worked for and that I just love her to pieces. She also has the most pleasant tenants and staff who are ever so loveable and easy going. It is a very comfortable home and I am so happy to say that I am apart of this family! I love all of you at Carol Ann’s Home and want you all to know you are special to me!

Compassion and Kindness
My Dad had lived independently until the spring of last year when he got pneumonia and landed in the hospital. My siblings and I all live away from San Antonio so being with him presented us with unique problems. We stay in San Antonio during his hospital stay and felt sure we would lose him any day. He had complication after complication but somehow managed to beat the odds and survive the ordeal. He was however no longer able to live alone and had to go to the full service nursing home for a month and it was clear that the institutional and non-nurturing environment there was out of the question for long term care. I was on a mission during his stay to find a home that could offer him a better quality of life while still having someone watch him closely and help him transition to this new life setting. I found Carol Ann’s and my prayers were answered.
The day I checked him out of the nursing home, he was very confused and wanted to go home. Of course with Dementia and his overall weakened condition that was not about to happen. On the drive to Carol Ann’s he was upset and agitated about yet another change. Once we walked in the door at Carol Ann’s Hilton Head home, we were greeting with smiles and excitement about our arrival. Dad’s demeanor changed as he was offered coffee and a sweet roll. While I finished paperwork, Dad was attended to by the staff and made to feel not only welcome but important. He wanted to smoke so a trip to the back yard (which faces a golf course) was like a trip to paradise. He watched the birds and squirrels playing and relaxed.
My Mother (his ex-wife and best friend) arrived with my sister and when Dad returned from his smoke he was greeted with more family. His face lit up and he smiled and talked with Mother and the staff. An experience that I was sure was going to become of the most difficult quickly became pleasant and reassuring. By the time we left he was content with his surrounding and ready for a quick nap. I checked back later that evening and found him talking with the staff at the kitchen table.
My Dad is not an easy person to please and can be difficult and rude; but the staff at Carol Ann’s made it a point to find a way to keep him safe, comfortable and well care for during the 14 months he has lived there. My siblings and I made the decision to move him closer to my home since none of us lives in San Antonio. I can only hope that the staff at our future residence will approach their daily tasks with the compassion and kindness that I saw and experienced with everyone that works at Carol Ann’s.

A Caring Place to Reside
My Mom and Dad were Carol Ann’s first residents at the Hilton Head house. They were both treated like they were her parents. Carol and her wonderful staff went out of their way to provide all of the needed care for my folks while making them feel totally at home. Both of Carol’s large houses are formerly family homes one on a golf course and another in a wooded setting – so they have no institutional feel about them. They are decorated with taste and for comfort. Residents eat as a community in the expansive kitchens or in their rooms if necessary. There are numerous functions and family gatherings on a weekly and holiday basis. Assistance provided is augmented in a synergistic manner by Hospice staff if and when that level of care is required. Both of my parents have passed on. My mother passed in October 2011 surrounded by family and Carol’s loving staff. Thank you Carol and crew.

I Feel So Blessed
I feel so blessed to have been led to the wonderful, caring, and compassionate care given to my mother and stepfather at Carol Ann’s Home. It gives me such a sense of security and assurance knowing that they are well cared for, I am always kept informed of how they are doing. Thank You Carol Ann, and may god bless you and your staff.
