In honor of the Lakewood employees, our family is proud to support the Residents’ Council Employee Christmas Fund with a gift from our late mother, Magdalene Wooten.
Mom loved living at Lakewood. She enjoyed the many opportunities offered for learning, entertainment, and resident participation in campus activities and decisions. As Mom’s health changed, she very much appreciated the expanded levels of care provided with expertise and genuine nurturing. She frequently would say that “the employees here are so nice – never a cross word to anyone for any reason.” Mom was always treated with respect and kindness, and the Lakewood staff was most attentive to her needs and wishes. We, her family, share her affection for all areas of employees and will ourselves miss seeing them. We often remarked on the quality of employees that serve Lakewood residents and how frequently they “went the extra mile” with a smile … both for Mom and for us.
We truly feel Mom could not have lived in a better community than Lakewood!
