In October 2020, I moved from my family and home in Tennessee to care for my father in Granite City. My mother passed away in September 2020, and she had been his caregiver. Dad was diagnosed about 6 years ago with dementia, probably Alzheimer’s like his sister and mother. I found myself suddenly thrust into [...]

St. John’s is a wonderful place. My husband gets a full day of activity, both mental and physical, has fun, socializes, and enjoys helping others when he can. I, in turn, can get a few things done and relax a little.  It’s so good for both of us. Being his caregiver 24/7 is truly exhausting. I [...]

I am writing to let you know as I remember Gene I also remember what a wonderful, caring, loving Adult Day program you have at St. John's Community Care. I call it the Angel Sanctuary. Where I met many angels serving there.  With my children by my side we set out to look for the [...]

I grew up in a farm family.  My parents farmed their entire lives, so farming was not only a job—it was a way of life for them which they enjoyed and continued to do in their retirement.  When my Mom became ill, my Dad became her main caregiver with help from my 2 sisters and [...]

Dear Gail, Thank you so much for being such a dear friend to me and my parents. My dad always enjoyed your visits and was absolutely delighted when you gave him his very own copy of your dad's book. Through all of the many ups and downs over the past few years with my parents [...]

Words can never express my gratitude to you, your staff and your program. It came at just the right time in my care giving days. Jack so enjoyed going there each Tues. and Thurs. and it gave me a reprieve. I will be eternally grateful for your kindness, your care of the adults and the [...]

Thank you so kindly for the walker and the shower chair. The walker is very nice, almost like new. We both use the shower chair and it is so great to be able to have a relaxing shower in our own home. After shopping for medical equipment, we knew we would never be able to [...]

Thank you for your kind note – no, no one thought our journey with mom would last 13 years! She is incrementally worse every day it seems, but we know we are on God’s timeline. We are still so grateful for her time at St. John’s , as well as all the guidance and support [...]
