Born and raised in Lebanon, Sylvia was a resident at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center for just over two years. Her son, Nick, recently ordered a plaque for her and had it installed at Cedar Haven in memory of his mother. The plaque reads “Great Mom” and is placed outside the facility where Sylvia “loved everybody— staff and residents.” Here she is pictured on the right, while enjoying time with a friend in the Cedar Haven dining room:
“Of course my mom loved to talk to people, she was 100% Italian,” Nick recently explained as he recalled her time at Cedar Haven. “She loved talking to the Cedar Haven staff and they grew to love her, too. She loved Bingo, going on trips, and all the activities.”
Nick was fortunate enough to work close to the facility, making it possible for him to eat lunch with his mother almost every day.
Nick had some very positive things to say about the care and service that his family experienced at Cedar Haven over the past two years. “Nursing staff members like Deb and Melissa were awesome,” he explained. “The finance office was awesome. You guys have been great—really caring and understanding.”
Our staff’s condolences and best wishes are with Nick and the rest of Sylvia’s family. It was a privilege to have her smiling face at the facility and we will remember her every time we see her plaque on the way into the building. We’re so thankful that she enjoyed our activities and daily interaction with our staff. From all of us at Cedar Haven, we hope your cherished memories bring you peace as you remember your “Great Mom.” Nick, please continue to stop by to say hi!
