Beatitudes for
Friends of the Aged

Blessed are they who understand my faltering step and palsied hand.

Blessed are they who know that my ears today must strain to catch the things they say.

Blessed are they who seem to know that my eyes are dim and my wits are slow.

Blessed are they who looked away when my coffee spilled today.

Blessed are they who with cheery smile stop to chat a little while.

Blessed are they who never say: “You told that story twice today”.

Blessed are they who know the ways to bring back memories of yesterdays.

Blessed are they who make it known that I’m loved, respected and not alone.

Blessed are they who know I’m at a loss to find strength to carry the cross.

Blessed are they who ease the days on my journey Home in loving ways.

“My mother-in-law spent ten
beautiful years at Alvernia Manor. It truly is a ‘haven of happiness’. The devoted Sisters and dedicated staff make everyone feel like family. Their kindness of heart and gentleness of manner enveloped the days.”

“I’m 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 go anywhere else.”

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.

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 Manor.

“I love 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!”

Alvernia Manor 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.
