Pleased with the Whole Experience (Guest Suite)
“Sorry I didn’t say proper goodbye and thanks on Saturday when we left.
We want to thank you for your kindness and hospitality during our brief stay at Discovery Place.
Betty and I were very pleased with the whole experience and enjoyed our stay with you. We found virtually everything to our liking. Your staff people were outstanding and always friendly and willing to assist no matter what the circumstances that arose, including a couple of medical emergencies. Their response was always swift and handled with professionalism. The atmosphere of the facility is always pleasant, happy and always upbeat. We had the pleasure of meeting a number of your permanent residents with whom we related many of our “life experiences”, which we enjoyed. The food and food services very efficiently met our needs in all respects.
Our stay at Discovery very much simplified our adjustments to my post-operative recovery and contributed significantly to that end.
Please pass along our gratitude and best wishes for the future to your entire staff who contributed to our stay at Discovery Place. Best of Luck in their future endeavours.”
- Norm Y. and Betty Y.

Good Job by Your Staff
“Just a quick word about Dad’s party on Saturday afternoon. Good job by all your staff involved.
It was a great day and was enjoyed by all. I don’t get by as often as I should but every time I visit Pops your building is in order and the staff friendly.
My profession before retirement was property/building management, so I know a well-run ship when I see one. Please accept and pass on my appreciation for your efforts.”
- Ken B.

Amazing Care
“My most sincere thanks to all the staff at Discovery Place for the amazing care we receive here. I am so glad I am here.”
- Glenda

The Staff Did an Amazing Job
“Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for helping to make Mom’s birthday a huge success. I believe there were over 50 people in attendance and it looked like everyone was enjoying themselves, in particular, Mom. She has a lot of stamina for someone of her age.
Again, we think Discovery Place was the perfect venue and the staff did an amazing job. In appreciation, we donated $100 to their “slush fund” for all to enjoy!
On behalf of Mom and all our family, please extend our thanks to everyone!”
- Marjorie I.

Thanks and Appreciation for the Love and Care
"On behalf of my mother, and our family, I wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the love and care she received from your facility in her declining days. It is hard to measure the value of the service you provide, the warmth, the caring and the feeling of home the residents enjoy. I wish to thank the staff who were very close to my mother, and to whom she turned for aid and support on many occasions. God bless you all, and keep up the good work.”
- M.Y.

A Wonderful Place for Seniors to Live
"My mother was the first resident to move into Discovery Place. Right from the very first day she was treated with dignity and respect. The staff was always kind, considerate, helpful, and pleasant. There were always activities that she could participate in, if she chose, and the staff encouraged her to join in. She played bingo, helped to look after the plants, always looked forward to the crafts that were done and enjoyed the entertainment that frequently filled the evenings.
During the time that Mom was a resident at Discovery Place, we were very pleased with the care she received. The meals were fabulous; all the staff went way beyond our expectations in seeing that every little detail was looked after for each and every resident.
When Alzheimer’s disease took control of Mom’s life, the staff was excellent with her, and in keeping me informed as to what was happening when I wasn’t around. It was very difficult for us when we had to move Mom from Discovery Place to a dementia unit. If Discovery Place had a dementia unit, we would never have moved her out of the building.
Devon is very fortunate to have this facility. It is a wonderful place for seniors to live.”
- R.S.

They Are One Big Happy Family
“We recently had the opportunity to perform the painting contract at your facility in Devon. I am writing this to inform you all that we had a very nice experience working with you all during our time there. We are very happy to say that your staff and management at the facility are very professional and caring to all the residents. We were very impressed to see the number of activities that were going on every day and to see the number of residents participating in them. We had a lot of residents letting us know how much they enjoy the facility. They are one big happy family. We have worked in facilities such as this one in the past but I will highly recommend anyone that needs such assistance in living to definitely go to Discovery Place and see for themselves what a great atmosphere you have. Thank you all.”
