What the families are saying…

I am writing to tell you how pleased we were with our choice and feel we could not have chosen a more caring, loving home for our aunt to spend her remaining years.

RM, Westminster, MD

Our family would like to thank Golden Crest for all the care for our Mom while she was a resident. I think her quality of life the last 10 months of her life was more meaningful being at Golden Crest than if she were still living with us. It was a pleasure working with all of you

GK, Westminster, MD

One thing in particular that really stands out in my mind is one nurse that seemed to go above and beyond being a nurse. I can't begin to express my appreciation to everyone there especially when I know my grandmother wasn't the easiest person to deal with at times.

HS, Westminster, MD

I hardly know where to start. You not only were family to my Mom, but you were like family to us, too. The love and caring she received so selflessly from all of you was always above and beyond any employee/resident status.

These aren't just nice people. They draw from a wellspring of understanding that they are the residents' world.

RD, Westminster, MD

What all of you do is exceptional in every way. Words cannot capture what it means to each and every resident that is luck to have all of you there.

RB, Westminster, MD

Thank you for the excellent care and compassion that was shown to my mom.

PH, Maryland

I want to express my gratitude for the excellent care my mom received at Golden Crest. Every staff member was so kind and caring. Anything I requested was taken care of promptly and completely.


Your staff is truly making a difference in my Mom's life, and just saying thanks isn't enough. Please know that all of you mean so much to us. Thanks you for everything you do. We are truly blessed because of you.

LE, Maryland

Thank you for all of the acts of kindness and compassion you offered to both my Dad, me and our family while he was living at Golden Crest. Dad's presence will still live on in all of us through the wonderful memories we will always treasure. God bless.

Making the decision to go into Assisted Living was hard for my mom but the home you provided was the best. I can't say enough wonderful things about Crystal and the staff at Nelson 2, especially during these times of COVID!

I want to express how much of a pleasure it was coordinating Mom's entry process with you today. Judging how the rest of our experience has been I'm not at all surprised. I certainly wish it was for a different purpose but your professional approach, knowledge of all associated information and, above all, your personality and delicate manner of walking through the process was exceedingly calming. I must admit I was very nervous upon arrival but felt like I left having made a new friend. Thank you for working with us to make this transition.

Warm Regards, RB Assisted Living

Dear Bob and Kim,
Thank you for the beautiful flowers for my grandmother, MH. She loved living at Golden Crest. She loved the special care that she received while a resident at Saint Paul. I really appreciated knowing that she was in good hands!

Thank you, KB Assisted Living

To our Golden Crest Family,

We can't possibly thank you enough for the love, support, and care you provided AF, our mom, during her time at Golden Crest. We are so grateful especially during the past COVID year. We know how much everyone poured into her to keep her feeling loved and not isolated. The flowers you sent were a beautiful tribute to a beautiful lady. We would have loved to have celebrated her 102 birthday with her, but she will spend it with Jesus and that will beat anything we could possibly have done. Gold bless you all and keep healthy and safe.

Our love and gratitude, DJ

Kim - I want to thank you and your staff for taking such good care of my Mom these last 8+years. She was family to the Golden Crest staff...she was getting the best care. I and my siblings will be forever grateful to you... God Bless D, J, K, J, and B!

Good Morning,

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank each and every member of the Golden Crest family that had ANY contact with my mom. Starting with you, to the nurses, care providers, cooks, and outside agency staff. I know mom’s stay with you was incredibly short, but the nurturing and care she received in her time with Golden Crest was amazing. My heart is breaking with her loss, but we are taking incredible comfort in the people she was surrounded by in her last month of life.

We completed moving mom’s things out yesterday and I was truly touched at how the staff continued to care for my sister and I.

Thank you all!


Dear Golden Crest Staff,

We cannot thank you enough for the care and love you showed our beloved mother and grandmother, BP. And the care you showed us, her family, especially in these last few weeks. She felt at home here and this is the greatest gift you could give us, and her. We initially bought these chocolates as a Valentine's gift for all of you, not knowing what this day would bring. We share them now knowing that she loved to feed people and make cookies and baked goods, and would be very happy knowing we were sharing this note and sweets with all of you on her behalf. What you do- taking care of our elders, supporting them to maintain their dignity in the face of so many scary changes at the end of life- is such important work. We have witnessed how well you do it firsthand and we cannot thank you enough.

With deepest respect, The family of BP - Dennis, Alina, Stephanie, Alysha, and Michael.

Dear Kim,

Thank you very much for the beautiful flower arrangement you sent in memory of Aunt C. Her 4 year stay with you was a good experience for she and I both. The staff was so kind to her and took excellent care of her as well right to the end. Thank you again for everything! SN


Dear Bob, Kim, & Staff,
I want to thank you for the beautiful flowers in honor of my dad. We appreciate all the love and kindness received from the staff of Golden Crest. My dad thrived with all the attention and care provided. Thank you, JW


Dear Ms. Meekins,
My wife after "much" research became a resident on Nelson Road. She was only there four months but received nothing but the best of care while there. God Bless, JM


Dear Kim,
On behalf of my mom, JZ, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts the care that our mom received up until the last day at your assisted living home. All of the staff were caring, and made us feel like family!! All of the staff were so amazing. I can speak for my brother too, as he felt the love. Its not often you find a place like this but we did and again thank you. GC will always have a piece of my heart/ our heart of our moms too. Thank you again and all of your amazing caregivers at GC Evergreen! - JD


My wife and I would like to take this time to personally thank the entire staff at the Evergreen Drive location for the care that was given to our mother DM over the past 10 years. During the entire time that she was a resident at your facility, not once did we encounter any problems related to the care that she was given. This is an outstanding record and is a direct reflection of the caliber of your personnel that work at that location. Also when we would visit the home it was always clean and very well organized. Over the past 10 years, there have been several Activity Directors at the home and all of them simply did a great job keeping the resident busy and interested in social activities. Also hair and fingernail day was a great morale booster and seemed to give everyone's spirits a lift. Meals were always served hot and individually prepared for each resident, which means a lot to an older person. So in conclusion you should be very proud of the physical condition of your facility and the entire staff at Evergreen. Please convey our special thanks to all for a job well done. Respectfully submitted, L&DM
