Dear Doug & Darla,

Thank-you so much for all your tender loving care for our Mom & Dave's wife!

We were so blessed to have her at your home and to have such excellent care! You both provided her many joyful moments and brought laughter in her life.

Thank-you for watching over her, praying for her and loving her as you did! We could not have had better care and it gave us peace of mind knowing she was being cared for with love, kindness and patience.

Thank you!

Mary & Tim



Dear Doug & Darla, two have made Wendy's and Gary's and my lives so much more relaxed and happy because of the care we know mom is getting. You can't possibly know how much it means to have parts of our lives back.

We also really appreciate what you are doing for the other residents' well-being and the quality of the people you have on staff makes this environment work in a way that has far-reaching benefits that allows healing on all levels for all of us.

...You two make a real difference in this world.

Thank you,

Gail & Gary

Dear Doug & Darla,

We highly recommend Lakeside Gardens Adult Family Home to anyone seeking a safe, loving environment for a senior family member needing special care.

Darla and Doug Laughlin provided a home for Mom when her dementia and physical limitations made it impossible for her to remain in her house. Like so many families we found ourselves not knowing where to turn after trying in-home caregivers with little success and experiencing the horror of a nursing home stay. Luckily we found Lakeside Gardens just when we needed them.

Mom was given loving, individualized care by Darla, Doug, and their carefully chosen staff in their beautiful home. She retained her dignity and experienced a much richer daily life with activities, wonderful meals and special events.

We were given peace of mind, the support and guidance we needed with social and medical issues, and were able to be Mom's family again. We will be eternally grateful for these gifts.
