Family Testimonial: JoAnn Niemerg

My mother, Marguerite, passed away on July 20, 2015 at the Willow Brook facility in Effingham, Il. We struggled as all families do with the idea of placing mom in a home. This place is more than a home.

Willowbrook's educated and very knowledgable staff provides a strong environment of love, compassion, patience and trust to all their residents. They treated her like their own mother, grandmother, neighbor and friend. She enjoyed her days there as she participated in the many daily activities.

Her death was very beautiful as we, her family, surrounded her on those last 4 days and 3 nights with love, song, prayers, and many memories. We thank God many times that we chose Willowbrook Memory Care facility for our mother. In our busy lives, we believe that they provided our mother with the same care we could, only better, because now we could be her "family " again, NOT her caregivers. And that's the best part.

God bless you all, and THANK YOU so very much. I have recommended this place to many people and will continue to do so.
