St. John’s Adult Day Program is a one of a kind, very unique, classy place. My 86-year-old Mom has been attending almost a year and it’s the best anti-depressant for her. I have seen a number of adult day cares and none compare. I’ve noticed such a sense of dignity and respect for every client.

I so appreciate all the various links of communication everyone at St. John's stays on top of.  You all are a great team. Thanks to the entire group at St. John's who take such pride in your jobs.  The entire staff is great.  In my work we often say "the speed f the leader is the speed of the group."  Stacey is excellent in all aspects of her leadership position.  She has compassion and truly loves her work.  That is the environment she creates for those that work with her. My mom loves coming to St. John's. Playing games, crafts, different food than I cook and the fellowship is so valuable to her. St. John's provides so much more than I can attend to for her.  I too am blessed to have her in the program. Thanks for helping enable her to stay living independent and not in a nursing home! Carolyn Koester

My prayers were answered when I was referred to St. John’s Community Care.  I had to find home care for my mentally challenged brother who could not walk well or speak.  I had a full time job and needed someone for 9 hours a day 5 days a week. I tried several other home care facilities before St. John’s and they did not work out.  The day I met the caregiver director from St. John’s, I knew it was the one.  I have been using St. John’s for home care for over 12 years.  They have made my life so much easier and my brother continues to be happy with their care. In 2011 my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.  It was determined that he could stay at home but needed to attend a day program to keep his mind active.  St. John’s was there to help me again.  He enjoys the activities and seeing all the friends he has made since joining the group.  In addition to the care services, they also provided me with additional resources that give me more balance and hope.  I cannot say enough great things about St. John’s Community Care and all their services.  It is like being part of a caring and loving family.

I could tell when Van attended the Adult Day Program he was different, he was more content and agreeable. I really think the activities kept his mind busy and helped him have a since of accomplishment. All of the caregivers were always willing to answer any questions I had. They really cared about me and our entire family. St. John's helped us so much during the transition and gave us lots of information to help guide us before we had to move Van to a nursing care facility. I am grateful for their expertise!
