Happy Random Kindness Day from our spirited group of seniors! 🌍💖 Our entire building crafted over 400 Shrinky-Dink keychains, each adorned with words of encouragement, and personally delivered them to the amazing teachers and support staff at Jacobs High School. The smiles on their faces were... priceless! Plus, we included a special kindness card with each keychain, spreading even more joy and encouraging them to pass on the kindness. Let’s make the world a kinder place, one keychain at a time! #RandomActOfKindnessDay #SpreadKindness #SeniorCrafts #TheOaksAtAlgonquin

I visited this place and many more for my mother. I actually came back another time with my husband just to see again. Donna Stinson could not have been more helpful in making this decision easier where to have my mother live. It takes on a whole other aspect for the best place to live and to feel comfortable that my mother is safe.I thank Donna so much. She knew everything that was part of my concerns on a place to live for my mother. My mom has been here for almost 2 months and is very happy.

I had only been able to stop in for information and we didn't even get a chance to tour before Covid and the stay-at-home orders hit. John was able to provide us video of the actual apartments that were available and answer all of our questions to work us through the process so that when move-ins were allowed again, we were ready to go. It's stressful enough moving a loved one, let alone in these circumstances but we were very confident of our choice after talking with John. Even though we had a couple of bumps with our movers, John and his team went above and beyond to help get my mother-in-law moved in on time and safely under the Covid guidelines. We wish we could have seen her face when she walked in the apartment but talking to her the next morning we knew we made the right choice and she was happy. If anyone else is facing a decision about moving their relative to Burr Senior Living or about doing it during this time of Covid, I would not hesitate to tell you to do it because John and the rest of the team are wonderful!
