To Kate Gray and her staff,

This letter is to thank you and the staff for making my mom her stay at the manor that much more pleasurable, she really felt like it was home to her, I cant say or thank you enough for making my mom comfortable. I applaud you for running a top notch facility.

I, for one, was basically there just about every day visiting my mom so I can speak from experience of the way the staff treated the elderly and I have nothing less but respect for you all

Again, thanks.

Allan Smith


I just want to take the time to say a very special THANK YOU to each one of the staff at Fairfield Manor who made my Aunt Rita's life very pleasant for the last three years. She enjoyed her new home with her new friends and just loved the special times when there was entertainment, family gatherings and special events. Each one of the staff have a very special gift in how they interact with the folks who live at Fairfield Manor. No matter what time of day I dropped in there was always a smile and a "Hi" from the staff and sometimes they were dealing with stressful situations. I knew that my Aunt was very well taken care of and was loved by all of you. That is a big relief when you hear so many horror stories of how some elderly people are treated. Whenever someone is talking about retirement homes I tell them about Fairfield Manor and how well everyone is treated and what a loved family environment you have there. The place is very well managed and the staff are the BEST.

My personal THANKS to ALL OF YOU. Keep up the good work.

FAIRFIELD MANOR   By Evelyn Wilson

We Are young , we are old
the years unfold,
and we wonder where did the time go,
and for all those years that passed us by,
what do we have to show.

Most are lonely, with families grown with a life of their own
and we do not wish to intrude,
so we stay alone, wait for the ring of the phone,
and pray for the end to come soon.

We then discover Fairfield Manor,
And decide to give it a try,
before too long we feel at home, other
residents are like sisters and brothers.

The girls who look after us
Are sweet and kind and always willing to give
They do for us, laugh with us
And make it easier to live.

We have bingo and shopping trips to keep us amused
outings to church and more. We go out to eat and
through it all we see Fairfield manor is really neat.

So if you are now alone with your family gone,
you begin to feel weak and wan,
take the step right away and arrange to stay
in Kanata at Fairfield Manor.
