“I am writing this letter to tell you how impressed I am, after numerous meetings, with your staff member (Crisis Supervisor).  (Your staff) was kind, considerate and very understanding about my recent tribulations relating to the breakdown of my marriage of 20 years.  At the age of 68, my dreams of retiring with my 63 year old wife and enjoying the good life were taken from me.  (Your staff) made me feel that I still had a life worth living.  She helped me build back my self-esteem and get rid of my depression and self-worthlessness and generally made me feel better after each and every visit.  I can only say `thank God` for a place called Wendat and the good people like (your staff) who help people in distress.  In closing, I thank you as well and in the future if funds exist I shall certainly think of Wendat and donate to such a worthy organization.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

“My name is Steve Knowles.  . . . The overall care and attention to detail that our father has received from (Wendat Nurse) has been truly exceptional.  In our challenging health care environment and through a difficult time, Sandy has always taken the time to show she really cares and assist in any way she can.  Thank you to you and your organization for the help and support received from Sandy and Wendat.  It has made a world of difference.”

“On behalf of my colleagues here at Baycrest I wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to meet together with our team and hear about your innovative and unique program.  The model you presented is one that we would very much like to emulate and develop with our key partners in the community.  We look forward to ongoing dialogue and learning about transitions to help assist our clients to move in to the most successful living arrangement possible. All of us here are very impressed with your program, and would like to continue discussions around feasibility of implementing something similar here in Toronto.”

“The home visits took the pressure off me as the care giver.  My husband really enjoyed them! Just knowing I could call anytime for support was so helpful.  I also appreciated the concern for my welfare and how I was coping. The support was amazing.  Thank you.”

“My name is Colleen Turner and I met your staff this afternoon.  My mom has been in hospital for just over a month. . .  I cannot tell you how wonderful your staff and the Wendat program is!  For the first time in a month I feel like someone cares about who my mom is and what her needs are.  Thank you.”

“Our organization looks forward to working with your staff each and every time they come into our facility.  Their knowledge, expertise and relationship with the clients are evident and contribute positively to the resident’s transition within our home.  Our Director of Care requests Wendat’s involvement when reviewing all potential applicants as it is an important part of making the client’s transition into long term care a smooth one.”

“The reason I have given a high rating of satisfaction with your services is the personalized and committed service your staff provided to my Aunt.  If this reflects the general service that Wendat provides, I have to congratulate you.”
