"Now that my mother is settling into her new home I am writing to thank each and every one of you who have cared for my mother since she arrived at Raphael House nearly five years ago. You have done so many acts of caring and kindness that only God knows about. May you be bless as you have been a blessing to me and to my mother who I know presented many challenges to each of you. Please know how much I appreciate you and how I will forever be grateful to you.

May God bless you. Enclosed is a token of my appreciation to be added to the Christmas Fund for the staff."

"Words can't fully describe my gratitude and admiration for the staff of Raphael House. My family member was in the hospital where we were advised us to go to an assisted living facility. I didn't know how to navigate the system or to obtain all the documentation needed. It was only through the unwavering tenacity and care of the Director that we were able to move my relative into Raphael House.

At Raphael House, the possibility of having daily communion and pray the Rosary was a huge gift. Then I was really edified by the Christian love I saw in action in all the staff members. It was not just a "job", but a vocation, a passion to care in the best possible way for each resident. They tried to accommodate to the different requests of each one while providing a safe environment.

The care she received was not only professional but also nurturing. So much so that she was able to go back and live independently.
