Family donates bench in gratitude

The family of Bob Young, a resident of Schowalter Villa who passed away earlier this year, donated a bench in his memory and in gratitude for the care he received at Schowalter Villa. “Although our loved one was only at Schowalter Villa for a short time, the love and care he received in his final months were more important to us than anything,” said Bob’s wife and children. “We knew he could be taken care of physically, but the emotional support he, as well as we, received couldn’t have felt more warm or supportive. The greatest thing we noticed and loved was that every person knew him, not just his individual nurses, but also staff in housekeeping, dining services, office personnel and medical teams. We wanted to do something to give back to the community that cared for our husband and father, and also provide something for future residents that he would have loved and used himself. Bob loved the outdoors and loved conversation and we feel this bench represents those two important aspects of who he was.”
