Dear Andy,

Please accept this contribution from Bob and I for your annual drive. The Leland Home is truly a unique and caring facility with the well being of its residents at the very top of its priorities. You and your excellent staff go above and beyond what can normally be expected. Thank you for taking such good care of our mother. 

I always mention your home to friends and acquaintances as a possible resource for their own aging relatives. The Boston area is fortunate to have such a fine home in its midst and as an option for our elders. Warm regards to everyone.

- Paul & Bob

To all our Friends at The Leland Home,

We would like to express our gratitude to everyone at The Leland Home who made our grandmother feel comfortable, well taken care of, and loved. The transition from her home to the nursing home was difficult and yet all the people who worked there made it much easier for her. It was always reassuring to know that when we couldn’t be there she was in capable and loving hands. 

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for the wonderful years you gave to our grandmother Rose. We will remember you all fondly.

Dear Mr. Johnson,
The Leland Home was the residence of my mother for over 7 years. During 
that time she was well cared for by the excellent staff and respected as an
individual. There is an equality that operates at Leland. My mother's and my wishes were always considered in light of the policies of the Leland Home and the rights and desires of other residents. I felt free to visit often, at whatever time I had available, and was always greeted courteously by the staff and residents….

Dear Mr. Johnson,
Many thanks to you and your staff for the tender loving care given to my dear sister while she was at Leland. She was very happy in her new home, never a complaint or criticism, only praises for all of you. While visiting her, a few weeks before she passed away, she said: "Irene, if the time comes that you have to leave your home, I hope you are fortunate enough to be in a place like this…"

Dear Alden,
Peace of mind is a priceless commodity. Bob and I want to thank you for the peace of mind your stewardship of Leland Home has provided us over the years. As an only child, the responsibility for Mom's well-being in her advancing years had sometimes weighed heavily on Bob's shoulders. You and Leland's attention lightened that burden substantially. Thank you so much!

- Bob & Merry S.
