Thornton Oaks Residents Speak

Jo Ann Withington

Don Kniseley, Executive Director of Thornton Oaks, received this unsolicited letter from resident Jo Ann Withington.

Dear Don,

As I celebrate the first anniversary of my move to Thornton Oaks, I thought I would let you know of my appreciation for this retirement home of mine.

Your outstanding staff is so kind and caring!! Every request is met with a smile! They make us feel important, which at this stage of our lives is a mighty good feeling indeed. The many things you do are more than I expected. From bringing a package to our door to mailing out packages for us…to providing exercise classes, having movies available, providing flu shots here. To providing transportation to local activities which enrich our lives. To bringing in speakers of interest, such as members of the town council, art shows, music programs, foreign affairs speakers. The list is endless and it makes our older years enjoyable.

At first I thought I didn’t want to be in a place with all those “old people.” But I have come to realize that all those “old people” are adults who have led interesting lives and have much to enrich our own! And I have found this is exactly the place I want to be!!

Jo Ann S. Withington
