My name is James A. and I am 65 years young. I am now retired after being in the working world for 46 years. I go by Jimmy, as most of the residents go by their first names here because we’re like a big family. Many years ago, my brother and I were looking for a place for my Dad to live. We came across “The Palms of Largo.” Myself, my wife Rita and my brother all decided to tour the campus. It looked like a beautiful resort. We picked out a beautiful 2-bedroom apartment with a wonderful fireplace, full kitchen and a walk-in Jacuzzi in the master bathroom. My Dad lived here at Cypress for about 3 years before he passed.

My beautiful wife developed cancer and we both needed a place to live out our last years together. The first place we came to was Cypress Palms. Unfortunately, Rita passed away right before our move in date. I chose a 1-bedroom at Cypress Palms for myself.

The staff is excellent, friendly and very compassionate with all of the residents. I would highly recommend this community to everyone. They will assist with the move in process and help to make your new home very comfortable and cozy, just how one would want it. The meals, housekeeping and maintenance teams are outstanding and very approachable.

Please consider this my true testimonial as to my wonderful experience I have had living at Cypress Palms on The Palms of Largo. In closing, I would like to say Cypress Palms is a cut above anything you’ve ever seen.

Mr. Goodman,

I am writing in regard to the transfer of Mr. Pradeep Muley to another facility at The Palms of Largo. The Cypress residents would like to thank you for the short time he was here. We will all miss him because he is an exceptional administrator, who was able to quickly resolve issues before they became problems. He would visit our fourth floor every week, and I assume he would visit all of the floors at Cypress. He knew the residents’ names and talked to everyone, and if they had an issue, he would remedy it quickly. Every facility has problems, some more difficult than others, but they can be solved with people that are willing to listen and work together. Mr. Muley is that person who gets things done quickly. As a Professional Civil Engineer, I have worked at many jobs as a Construction Manager or Project Engineer involving just about any structure you can think of, worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Mr. Muley would have been at the top of the list on any of the Corporation Projects I have worked on. He has been outstanding in his dedication to The Goodman Group, his staff and to the care of the residents at Cypress. Every resident at an Assisted Living facility is somewhat different and requires understanding, compassion and sometimes special treatment that a good Director instills in his co-workers and staff. Mr. Muley is that director. He is the best, and all residents will miss him and we wish him well.

As a result of two strokes, my wife Laverne is a resident at Cypress, because this was the best of the many places in the Tampa Bay area that we visited, and I moved with her so that she would not be alone in a strange place. The staff has been exceptional, and most are candidates for the Angel Award given to exceptional staff members because of their dedication to residents. Again, thank you for having good people like “Pradeep”

Dear Mr. Elias,

I would like to compliment you on the choice of staff at Cypress Palms. Marnie has bent over backwards to accommodate my mother, Jean Mary, as well as myself and my family members. She has a great mind for follow through. Her attention to detail is outstanding. She is willing to make herself available even when it is not convenient, to answer questions or work out issues. I was impressed by her concern for others including taking chicken wings to a resident who didn’t want to leave her, room that particular day. Her knowledge of the individual needs of each resident is impressive.

Also to be complimented are Gina for her cheery personality, willing smile, and gift for remembering names. Jim also has that type of personality that works so well for your facility.

I am glad for the kindness and care shown to my mother. It was great that you took the opportunity to meet both my brother and I and we greatly appreciate that you are a “hands on” Executive Director.

Sincerely,

Sandra

Dear Marnie:

Please accept my thanks for the attention you and your organization gave to my father in the last years of his life. The efforts of you and your co-workers enabled a quality of life and, for my brother and me, peace of mind, that likely would not have otherwise been possible.

If you would, please see to it that this letter is circulated to all the Cypress Palms staff who so ably attended to my father’s needs over those years.

Sincerely,

Harry

To the staff of Cypress Palms that so graciously helped:

Each one of you has been so nice it makes it very hard to put so much real gratitude into a single card. But if each one of you will read between the lines, you’ll know this brings a “thank you” more sincere than words could ever show.

I would like to extend our “sincere” appreciation to all of you who were so thoughtful and cooperative in getting Lucille ready for her 91st birthday party on Sunday, January 31, 2010. She has been like a mother to me, a grandmother to our son and a sincere friend to many for years, and we love her so. As a Charge and Surgical Nurse herself for many years, she, too, gave TLC to many of her patients.

I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Ms. Marnie for all she did for us to have this party. And Ms. Liz, Assistant Activities Director, for making several trips to the library and assisting by phone with decoration set-up and other needs. Most of all to Mr. Matthew, the Chef, who went beyond the call of duty and personally helped me decorate while my family was running party errands. He so thoughtfully provided linens, tableware, ice, and cold storage for our ice cream, and gave thorough instructions on the coffee machine use and was ‘on call’ if we needed him. Many, many heartfelt thanks!!!

Again, our sincere gratitude to all for help making our Lucille’s birthday party a memorable event!

Dear Ms. Cronson,

My father was a resident of Cypress Palms, Enhanced Living Facility, in Largo, Florida, for the last 5 years. Eight years ago, after a debilitating stroke, which left my father unable to speak or move the right side of his body, my mother became the primary care giver. Three short years later, she passed away and he became my responsibility. While looking for an assisted living facility, I had the good fortune of finding Cypress Palms. My father’s time there was extraordinary and would like to take a moment to acknowledge the people who created a loving, caring, and supportive environment for him.

Marnie, who was the Resident Service Director, always hugged, kissed, and greeted my father daily. Dianna Slutzker, Director of Nursing, understood that Cypress Palms had become his home and worked diligently to return him to the facility when he was sick and was released by the local hospital to a rehab facility. The support staff, Gina and Johnny, were fabulously engaging. I know my father will miss Gina’s smiles and Johnny’s triple chocolate shakes on Sunday afternoons. The nurses and CNA’s on the 3rd floor were amazing. Connie and Robin before her and rest of the kitchen staff shined as well. I would like to especially acknowledge one person in particular, Liz. Almost from the beginning of his stay there, Liz was able to communicate with my father and seemed to understand him like my mother had. She was truly an angel sent from heaven. No words can convey the level of care she gave to my father when he was at Cypress Palms nor can mere words alone adequately express my thanks.

I can’t name all of the wonderful people there, but everyone from the receptionists at the main desk that engaged him in conversation when he sat in the lobby, to the staff that cleaned the rooms with smiles on their faces, were all part and parcel to the overall feeling that was fostered at this place that my father considered home.

My father passed away on June 16th, 2014. The caring people at Cypress Palms will always be in my heart.

Sincerely,

Evan
