Family Satisfied with Ashton Place

To the Editor:

Our family believes that Ashton Place is a blessing for senior citizens who need to be in a safe, comfortable environment and would like to share our enthusiasm for what we believe to be a jewel of a retirement community.

We moved our 88-year-old mother and some of her favorite furniture to Ashton Place in Clifton Springs in January 2009 from her home in southeastern Pennsylvania. We knew people who had lived at Ashton Place including the late Joe Felice and the Rev. Jane Brown.

They were positive in relating their residential experience at Ashton Place.

We appreciated the fact that there was no entrance fee, and we found that the monthly charges provided great value compared to what was available in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Mother appreciates help with organization and personal care provided by the enriched services program at Ashton. This is a personalized service which allows residents to live in a community in a dignified manner.

The staff is great! Mother loves the attention and raves about the food, this coming from a woman who loves to cook and feed people herself. Entertainment, programs and exercise are all part of the daily program as well as limo service to appointments. Mother constantly comments about how nice everyone is to her and how quickly the days pass with all the planned activities.

Our family is thankful to have Ashton Place taking care of our mother!
