Testimonials

January 2017,
Evenings Porch Assisted Living

“Congratulations on the recent award of “Small Business of the Year” by the Durango Chamber of Commerce for an outstanding business in Bayfield. You and your staff have done a fabulous job creating an environment for seniors that goes above and beyond what other similar facilities have done. As Lee’s mother said: “he wanted to create a place for his own mom where she would be happy living”. Speaking for Upper Pine Fire it is always a pleasure to work with Evenings Porch Assisted Care Facility.”

We completed Resident Surveys recently….Some of what our residents said about Evenings Porch. “The scenic drives are inspired!”
“Such a nice gesture to bring coffee early. This is just a continuation of what we did at home”.
“The size of the resident population is a real plus”.
Since moving “I am having fewer problems. I drink more water, my weight is stable”.
“I have already but will add that I think your client/staff ratio is a major strength.”
“You understand the needs of the population you serve-and they love you for it. You see all your people as individuals and you handle the occasional “circumstance” with tact and maturity”.

December, 2016:   Wanted to share a comment from a resident family member about Evenings Porch……..Just wanted to let you know your staff did a fabulous job thanksgiving Day. Amanda is a great leader and manager. Everyone was “up” even though it was a holiday. I believe they all even took special pains with makeup and hair. Courtney’s meal was wonderful. My wife was ill and couldn’t attend so she even fixed some food for me to take home. You have done a miraculous job of staffing and motivating….
Just got this email from a family member of a resident…November 2016
You continue to do a great job of making EP a “home” as opposed to just a care facility…

“Having worked in the Home Health Field for 20 years and personally experienced my mother’s time spent in a “facility” for 3 years, I’ve seen numerous assisted living situations. Evenings Porch stands out for several reasons: 1. It is beautifully designed and furnished with the residents’ comfort and dignity in mind. Private bathrooms vs. shared bathrooms was one of the first things I noticed. 2. I was immediately aware of a homelike feel vs. “institutional” on my first visit to see a patient there. 3. Most important was the amazing staff that totally reflect the Evenings Porch philosophy: “Where Independence and Quality of Life are Nurtured and Respected”. Evenings Porch is the closest atmosphere to being “in your own home” I have ever encountered.
Home Health Provider, Louise

To whom it may concern:
First off I would to thank each and every one of the staff members for their care and concern for my mother, Elva Black.  Mom has been a resident there for more than five months.  She is a very healthy and active 91 years young.
When Mom first made the decision to move into her beautiful apartment at Evenings Porch Assisted Living facility it was a difficult time for her and for us.  However with the staff and their professionalism and experience with seniors this process was made so much easier.  The staff had anticipated and experienced this type of transition and handled the issues in a seamless, comfortable manner.
In short Mom is extremely happy and glad for the decision.  They have personalized all care and activities to meet her needs and desires.   She loves to walk each and every day and the staff has taken that activity to heart and ensures she is able to walk, depending on weather, as much as meets her needs.  She is escorted to all of her activities and appointments such as Senior Citizen’s programs, exercise classes, hair appointments and doctor’s visits.  More importantly, they ensure that she is part of the Evening Porch family and is included in many activities and decisions.
We are extremely happy with Evening Porch and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for an Assisted Living facility that is operated with experienced, professional staff and provides a family atmosphere.
Sincerely,
Larry Black
