Caring, Attentive Staff

My Mother in Law spent 2 years at Mills Estate Villa from 2016 to 2018. She lived with my husband and I for 5 years and the last year we had Senior Assist person staying with her for 3-4 hours while we were at Work.  After a small stroke and a couple of falls that she got lucky with no broken bones …we decided she needed to be checked in on 24/7.

Mills Estates took good care of her and she even enjoyed some of the activities until lung cancer in her last 8 months took away most of her energy.  Between the hospice care and the caregivers at Mills they made sure she was comfortable in her last months and were always great about feeding her some of the favorites I brought in for her.

We appreciate all the care they gave our Mom especially when she was bedridden.  It is a tough job and they did their best to entice her to eat and kept her clean in those final months.  They have a lot of great activities for those who are more active.  It is just the right size as well, not too big nor too small.

Thanks to all the staff at Mills Estates!

We Felt Like We Were Part of the Mills Estate Villa Family…

My wife and want to thank  all the caregivers for the excellent care provided my mother,  during her 5 years at Mills Estate Villa from 2008 through December of 2013. When we recognized that my mom needed more care than could be provided in her home we did our due diligence and visited several care facilities in the Burlingame area. We decided that Mills Estate Villa, a family run facility, was the place for Mom.

We were able to visit three to four times a week because Mills Estate Villa was only five minutes from our home. Many times we b brought our toddler granddaughters to visit mom and the other residents who enjoyed their youthful spirit. And my German shepherd, a therapy dog, became a regular fixture with many residents happily awaiting her arrival and interaction. Coming so often there wasn’t much we missed. Whenever we observed something my mom needed it was taken care of. We felt like we were part of the Mills Estate Villa family. Things were taken care of quickly and graciously.

Mom loved the activities especially the musical presentations. She made sure we were there for the family activities around the national holiday celebrations. We have her photo with Santa Claus in a special place. When there were medical issues to tend to you were quick to call us and help us get the appropriate care. No road is without potholes and when there was one you were always there to fill it and move on. We were never met with shallow explanations or a look that indicated that we didn’t know what we were talking about.

Right up to Mom’s passing you were always there for our family. Our mom’s stay really extended her years, all 100 of them, because you and the caregivers were so thoughtful and caring. We can only say,  “Thank you!”
