I would like to say thank you to our Buhl Police Department. I think you’re right there when we need help, and I have a great deal of respect for you. Thank you for all that you do.

Not all heroes wear capes

Our family recently lost our “lighthouse,” and though it was difficult, we found a blessing in the process and want to acknowledge that publicly. Our greatest gratitude goes out to the Ashley Manor in Jerome for taking such excellent care of our beloved mother.

The decision of placing our mother in a home was extremely difficult and burdensome emotionally. We came across Ashley Manor, and they completely alleviated all our fears. The family atmosphere, not only in the layout of the manor but in the feeling of the home, was more than we could have ever expected. The individual care given to each resident radiated throughout the facility.

Mel Patterson, Ashley Manor’s administrator, was knowledgeable and empathetic of our situation. Her compassion trickled down to her staff, and they gave the same care to our mother that I believe they’d give to members of their own families. They’re unbelievably charismatic with their residents and truly love what they do each and every day.

Toward the end, we frequently had members of our family not only visiting the manor but staying the night there as well. Ashley Manor’s staff could not have been more generous, welcomed us as one of their own and really made us feel at home when we needed it the most.

Ashley Manor Jerome, the staff and the current residents will always hold a special place in our family’s hearts. Words can’t express the cherished memories and friendships we’ve made and the thankfulness for everything they were able to do for all of us.
