Dear Heritage House,
Thank you for making Larry’s birthday a special day!! …dining room staff …furniture mover-Sander and of course the great singers!
I love you all,
Dear Philippe, I write to express my sincere thanks to you for an outstanding tour. The way you explained the difference between the other neighborhoods and Special Services was most helpful. You showed my mom all the things I wanted her to see, so that she knew my dad would get the best care and to plant the seed in her head she could go with him as another option! Jane immediately felt the family owned atmosphere as I have so many times and hasn’t stopped talking about it.
Thank you again. Well done!

Dear Heritage House, I am so, so happy I brought my mother to Santa Barbara and Heritage House. She truly loved her home there. The caregivers and staff are so kind and respectful to the old people, even when they’re rambunctious. Every time I’d bring my mother back from an outing, she said, “Oh good! I’m home.” HH has been such a big part of my life for 3 and a half years— I can’t just drop it. Every time I left I always said to myself- Thank God for this wonderful place. Thank you so much for everything you did to help her and help me.

It is impossible for me to put into words the gift you have given to me, my father, and Marty too. There is no way I could have had my surgery without the amazing care I have received at Heritage House and to able to spend this time with my father. I will love you forever for that gift! This place, the love and care you provide to the residents and family, makes this truly a one-of-a-kind magical place. The number of lives that you touch and improve through your creation of HH and how you run it is quite a legacy. Thank you from the entirety of my heart and soul.

Monica’s final months were harrowing for us all but the loving & professional care she received at Heritage House helped ease the pain for her and her family. It was so comforting to see the tenderness surrounding her and I know that she was aware of all those loving hands.
Thank you and your fabulous staff for all that and for the support you all offered me and my family.
Dear Heritage House,
Many thanks to everyone at Heritage House for your hospitality. We came for a visit with Roger Bradfield and you were so welcoming and friendly. The cookies were delicious, as was the lunch; and of course the visit with Roger was beyond enjoyable. Loal and Roger did a great amount of "catching up."

What a truly great experience we all had at Heritage House. Mimi loved it there! She raved about the service and food, music, bingo, and new friendships! We are very happy to have been able to offer her this great ending to her life...for such a great lady, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She is loved. You made it especially nice to work out any issues. The entire staff, especially those helping Mimi were amazing: hard working and so very friendly.

Dear Bill and Julie, Our sincerest thanks for providing our mother with a loving home during the last year of her life, the warmth and care exhibited by your entire staff stems from owners who r care about their residents and treat them more like members of an extended family. This really makes a difference in the quality of life that your residents experience here. Thanks to both of you for opening your Heritage House home and hearts to our mother.

Dear Rosemarie, I think "The Honey Bee" is EXCEPTIONALLY done. It is so wonderful and I really enjoy receiving it. The stories and pictures are lovely. The section topics/areas are perfect. It is so professionally done. I just can't stop raving. "The Honey Bee" is just as superb as Heritage House, and that is not an easy achievement. Thanks for taking the time and effort to make such a wonderful addition to Heritage House for both the residents and their families!

To Bill, Heritage House Management & Staff, I had the privilege of being at Heritage House last Easter and had a great time. This year I got to help some in distributing the "eggs" outside for the kids Easter egg hunt. The "hunt", as usual seemed to be a great success. Everyone was talking and visiting with everyone including the residents and renewing friendships. To top it off, this lunch was the best of the year. My highest complements to Nicole and her staff.
Thank You All,

Thank you for providing such a fabulous place for my father to call home during his final years. He loved living at Heritage House & especially loved talking with you about his most favorite things… hunting, fishing and barbecuing. The Heritage House staff met his every need beginning with home cooked food always so delicious, hugs and greetings from Rosemarie and all the caregivers made him feel like a king! I’m honored to have been part of creating Heritage House. My love and appreciation to both you and your beautiful talented wife Julie.

Good will, friendship and chance combined for the benefit of my parents experience at Heritage House.
My parents, Tony, Fred and l were most fortunate. First, most helpful friends. At the beginning, it was your father. During the middle years (fun time) and the end it was you who set the tone for HH. Next, it was good will & help of HH staff who followed the tone you set. Finally, there was good fortune how it all fit together for my parents' last years together. Our BBQ request is the Banks Brothers way of saying that we remember & thank you, the McGeever family & Heritage Hou staff.

Dear Members of the Alzheimer's Women's Initiative,
I am pleased to nominate the ENTIRE staff at Heritage House for the Alzheimer's Women's Initiative 2016 Caregiver Awards. Heritage House truly feels like home in the best sense of the word. Rosemarie Harris, the Administrator and Bill McGeever, the owner, treat their employees like family who in turn do the same with each other and all of the residents. My family feels truly blessed and very fortunate that our mother (who suffers from dementia) is a resident at Heritage House. We know she is in the best possible place and has many wonderful 'caregivers' watching over her every day.

To all at Heritage House,
Thank you for being the place I knew my mom would be well taken care of. Because I work at so many care facilities there was no doubt in my mind that bringing Judith here was the best decision I could have made.
You did Good!
