Symphony of Lights
Each year, Caretel Inns St. Joseph lights up the holiday season with our Symphony of Lights drive through experience. Combining a dazzling electrical display with the philanthropic spirit of the holiday season, Symphony of Lights provides both smiles to our community and an annual donation to the local homeless shelter. In 2020, visitors donated adult mittens to our mitten tree and helped keep the community warm. Don’t miss the annual tradition each holiday season!
Spotlights on St. Joseph
“Julian and Martha are starting to settle in nicely at Symphony Care Network. Both of them love their 1-bedroom suite with a spacious living room and mini kitchen. Julian enjoys getting to know the wonderful staff. Martha, on the other hand, is embracing the relaxed atmosphere. They are very pleased with the staff and their attentiveness towards the guests.”
“All the staff are very attentive and kind. Bingo and special celebrations are my favorite activities. My favorite celebration is the Veteran’s Day party. It is always well thought out and the snacks are so good! The facility is always clean!”
“My dad thrived at Symphony and is thankfully able to return home! Symphony was able to asses my dad’s individual needs, and properly care for him. The communication throughout his stay was great. I would definitely recommend Symphony to family and friends.”
“I tell all my friends, if you need to go somewhere for care, this is the place to be. They treat you like family and everyone is so nice. The food is not bad, but the popcorn is the best.”
“I remember when I first came into Symphony how it felt like home. From the staff, to the decor, it did not feel like your typical ‘Nursing Home.’ I originally had come to Symphony as my husband needed rehabilitation. Once I realized that they also offered Memory Care, and it would be an easy transfer, I was completely on board. The transition from skilled- care to memory-care was not very different, as the Director of Assisted Living worked right in the home and was there to continually monitor any changes in condition immediately. I feel so at ease knowing that I can go about my day knowing that my husband is in good hands and enjoying Penny Lane snacks.”
“While at home, I was so sick that I went to the emergency department for help. I ended up staying in the hospital for over 5 days. During my hospital stay, I continued to feel lethargic, weak, I couldn’t eat or drink, and could no longer walk. The hospital and I decided a short stay at a skilled nursing facility would be best, so I choose Symphony. During my time at Symphony, the staff were empathetic and caring. Everyone was so persistent with getting me better. They spent quality time making me comfortable, they were aggressive in moving me towards a better health outcome, they were quick with call light response times, and overall, they went above and beyond to promote a healthy recovery. Symphony has a home-like environment and has wonderful clinicians, rarely do you find both in one package.”
“I have been a resident of Fullerton House at Caretel since late 2018. I originally moved in with my husband, but he unfortunately passed in 2019. I feel that the “lockdown” for all Caretel residents during this horrific pandemic has been a good one. Overall, it has kept everyone very safe. All residents who chose to, have already received the first vaccine, and we are expecting the second vaccine in about a month! For the most part, everyone has received their flu shot as well, along with being tested for Covid-19 multiple times. Yes, it has been a “headache,” but as I said above, we are safe, and that is the most important consideration. Activities and life have gone on as normal as possible. I am grateful for all that Caretel has done to keep us safe this year. Thank you!”
