Episcopal Place has exceeded all of my expectations as being one of the best senior facilities to live and work. I would absolutely apply for my parents to live here in the future. The staff are caring and treat everyone with dignity and respect. The staff, volunteers and board of directors work diligently to make every effort to ensure everyone has their individual needs met as well as managing the building properly.

I have worked here at Episcopal Place for 9 years and feel that this establishment has only grown as a ministry that is working towards helping those that receive the services they need to maintain their independence. We are able to offer such a wide variety of services through the grants and fundraisers and are able to serve such a diverse population that I am overwhelmed daily by what we do. Having the ability to meet with people daily, touch their lives, meet with their family members and help them in crisis or tramatic times has really made my life long dream a reality. I am in awe of how many residents are able to remain in their apartments because of what we offer and how many have lived here over 10 years.

Episcopal Place has offered me a home esp while my family is overseas. I have enjoyed the teamwork and the love that the residents share with the staff and each other. Over the past 7 years, I have most enjoyed getting to know each and every resident and listening to their wonderful stories and being able to fulfill their needs with the services we offer. Episcopal Place is so warm and welcoming and the activities provide a great arena for socializing and also during the holidays we have been able to fill in for those who have no family. Sometimes we can offer a smile or a hug that changes someone's day for the better. I believe that is who we are- the people who make a change for the better.

Episcopal Place has provided me with a home esp while my family is overseas. I look forward to coming to work every day and look forward to the smiling faces that greet me every day. I enjoy getting to know each and every resident and enjoy the teamwork we have here. Episcopal Place provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere. I am pleased with the variety of services we offer the residents and hope we can continue to do so and can offer more and more as the days pass. The residents offer the staff just as much entertainment as we off them. We have a great respect for each other.

There are so many experiences I would like to share and choosing just one is terribly difficult. This organization, the staff, and the residents have greatly impacted my life. Currently I am in the process of assisting a female resident with a desire to be one of the first fashion models with a disability. She needed a portfolio and we were able to locate a local photographer willing to create it for her. She is now well on her way to reaching her dream. Through a new relationship with an exercise facility specializing in assisting persons with disabilities as well as senior citizens, I have successfully applied for and received 15 full or partial scholarships for our residents to utlize the facility. We also have arranged transportation to the complex twice a week. Through these activities, the residents are able to age in place.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The relationships with family members and residents that are maintained even after a resident has passed or moved on. Also in the smiles and hugs received daily. Seeing a resident get the job they have always wanted or having the ability to volunteer with children or exercise facilities that are created for persons with disabilities. Without the knowledge of the staff or the networking capabilities, some of these dreams would never be accomplished.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would provide more access for the residents to advocate for what they want and need in the community. I would also provide more training for family members and caregivers as well as staff.
