This note is to let you know how much we appreciate
the care and attention your staff is giving our 99 year
old mother, Rose Gabryl. During the past two years your
facility has taken care of her daily needs and helped
her to keep mobile.
Your kitchen is similar to her native Polish cuisine.
Your nurses and medical staff have taken great pains
to give her the proper medication for body and spirit.
In addition the management has supplied her with a hospital
bed and carpeting as was required.
We recommend your facility without hesitation, to all
our friends and relatives as they may require similar
Yours very truly,

My mother’s last seven years were spent at
Wawel Villa senior’s residence, being cared
for by some Polish ANGELS who treat their seniors
To All the Staff at Wawel Villa
Thank you for taking such good care of my Ciocia
Ala for six years now.
I am so happy that she has found a home in such a
friendly, kind and gentle caring environment.
God Bless you all,
Wawel Villa has been a godsend for my father.
All his needs are met socially, medicinally and nutritionally.
Daily activities and excursions keep him active and
Polish is spoken as well as English and this has made
adjustment much easier.
Polish cuisine and tradition are maintained which
makes him feel at home. Meals are taken in a bright,
cheerful dining room and guests are invited to join
The interior of the facility is scrupulously clean
and is always decorated for special occasions.
The grounds also receive the some meticulous care.
The Villa sits in a park-like setting with tall trees
and carefully landscaped floral beds.
My father is most appreciative of the friendly, caring
and professional staff which makes it possible for
him to enjoy his life.
I would like to extend my personal thanks to an incredible

On behalf of my family, I would like to thank the
Staff and Caregivers at Wawel Villa for their wonderful
work to make my Mother and All the residents feel
My Mother is and has been a resident at Wawel Villa
for just a little over ten years. She considers this
her home where she feels safe, comfortable and most
of all “happy”. In my opinion, Wawel Villa
is not just a Seniors Residence or institution; it
is a Community run by a group of people who are dedicated
to these old folks to make them feel important and
The grounds and interior of the home is kept
very clean, the meals smell heavenly and the days
are filled with many activities to keep the men and
ladies on their toes. Between bingo, exercise, parties,
afternoon teas, picnics at the nearby lakefront park,
and strawberries and ice-cream in the garden, the
residents have no time to dwell on their aches and
The staff also makes sure that they celebrate special
days like Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s
Day, Halloween, Mother’s Day, and Father’s
Day. They even had their own Olympics with games and
medals for the participants. My Mother is so busy
that I can only catch her in her room at bedtime.
The Staff, from the office to the Nursing staff ,
to the kitchen and cleaning people, to the maintenance
men, I have never met such a large number of people
who are always smiling, always cheerful, always taking
time to chat with the residents and guests, it almost
looks like they really enjoy their work.
These people have created such a wonderful environment
at Wawel Villa that it’s like one big family.
I am so very happy and appreciative of the care that
my Mother is getting at Wawel Villa. It is very important
to me that she is content, she was always very active
and involved with people so I didn’t want her
to feel forgotten or alone and I know that with our
busy lives and our complicated schedules, it would
be absolutely impossible for me to be able to provide
her with the same level of care if she were to live
with me and my family in our home.
May you all be blessed!
Andy and Ursula Makula
Please know that your thoughtful expressions of
comfort and encouragement have stayed with me. No
doubt they will guide me, with patience and time to
deal with Mother’s passing.
My grateful thanks to all your nursing staff. Your
combined Trojan efforts are commendable and I shall
remember you always and for the many kindnesses you
have extended to our family over the years.
I should also like to thank all your staff including,
Wanda, Lyla, and Sister Clara, for sharing your compassion
and I appreciate the kind thoughts that prompted you
to send such lovely flowers.
Wawel Villa was home for my Mother for more than seven
years. Standing as a great companion and warm friend,
it means more than mere words can say.
Thank you all for everything,
Beverley A. Williams
