Here we share a small sampling of the many letters and expressions of love and gratitude from the families and friends of those we have served over the years.
"Dear Valencia Gardens Staff,
We were touched by all your loving care, supportive attention and kindness to Mama during this last six months of her time here on earth. Blessings to all of you!"

"My mother is Eleanor, who is under Valencia Gardens Health care. Everyone who comes from Valencia Gardens Health is so nice, friendly, and always has a smile on their face. One of these people stands out. Her name is Martha. She is my mother's bath aide. She is prepared each time she walks in the door, and is very kind and patient with my mother, who has dementia. She is always on top of any supplies my mother needs. When I let her know my mother needs something that day, she almost always has it in her car. If she doesn't, she makes a note of it and brings it on her next visit. When she is done bathing my mom, she is very thorough in cleaning up after herself. I feel her work ethic deserved some recognition, which is why I took the time to write this letter."
In sincere appreciation of all of your staff,
Just a small thank you to all the special people that were part of my day on Tuesday. I can't say Thank You enough for being a part of my special day. You are all such a big part in my life and I'm so grateful to have you all."
Thank you all so much,
To the wonderful ladies at Valencia Gardens Health!
"We want to thank you for what you did for Lilly. We think that what you did in bringing her family back together made all the difference in the world for her last year and a half. We know you didn't have to do this but the love and caring that you displayed is certainly appreciated. Keep up the good work!"
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
"I couldn't be more grateful to you all for what you have done for my mother and my family. Thank you so much! I will recommend your service a thousand times over!"
"Words can't express the wonderful compassionate caring that Valencia Garden comforted my mother and me. God bless you all; for I've truly been blessed."
