very happy here. Everyone is good. The food is good and we have
a very nice chapel. This is the best place; I would not want to

I like living
at Alvernia Manor because of the location – it is beautiful
and breathtaking. The Sisters and all the staff are gentle, kind
and caring and they make us feel that we are really special people.
The food is good and we get to do lots of things in activities.
We have improved our minds and bodies. We also have the opportunity
to attend Daily Mass and to share prayers with our fellow residents.
The staff at
Alvernia Manor is very courteous. It is the cleanest place I have
ever been at. The Sisters and staff try to make everyone happy.
We are provided with plenty of activities, refreshments, trips and
nice and clean which is important to me. People are friendly. That’s
I enjoy Alvernia Manor.
There are so
many things to say. The people, the Sisters, the staff and all those
we come in contact with are friendly and help me to enjoy Alvernia
it!” There is no place like Alvernia. The Sisters, staff and
residents are courteous. There is more to do then just shake a leg,
not a dull moment. Outings and places to go – exercises are
healthy for us. I love going to church. The parking lot is big enough
to walk around. Betty and Sister Cindy take us for ice cream if
we want to go and believe me “We like ice cream and rides!”
is terrific! We have really good meals and more than enough at every
meal three times a day! The activities are entertaining and stimulating.
Everyone is helpful and friendly. We have a great dog who loves
all of us and vice versa. When I go to visit my family, I honestly
can’t wait to return “home!” The best part of
Alvernia Manor is our Chapel! We have Mass daily and the Divine
Mercy Chaplet at 3:15 every afternoon. It’s open all day for
private visits, which I appreciate very much.
I like Alvernia
Manor because it’s clean and comfortable and the meals are
tasty. The residents are friendly and gracious. I also appreciate
being able to go to daily Mass. Then there’s Duke –
he’s so special!
For my Mother Alvernia Manor is a place of miracles. This in not
a residence but a home filled with all the love and compassion of
what became her new and wonderful family.
