We are so grateful that we were able to Celebrate our Mom and Nana’s 90th Birthday party just 3 weeks ago with cake, music, great pictures and of course her favourite wine!

She loved cooking, baking, entertaining and travelling. We cannot thank Creekview staff at Grandview Lodge enough for the loving, compassionate care of our Mom and Nana over the last year and half. During the last 2 weeks being at her side, our family was blessed to have such a caring staff of RN’s, PSW’s and all staff care for Mom so lovingly with such compassion and we are so appreciative. You are a special, caring group of wonderful professionals. We thank you all!
