I am most grateful to Belvedere Care Centre, especially to Operations Manager Ms. Annamae Clarke for her willingness to accept new challenges…
My 83 year old father-in-law was diagnosed with renal failure in late 2001 and had to undergo peritoneal dialysis at home every day…In early 2003 my mother-in-law became seriously ill also…I contacted a few care homes for my father-in-law but all of them declined to perform dialysis at the facility until I met Annamae at Belvedere Care Centre. She was very positive and arranged for her staff to attend training at the Renal Unit of Royal Columbia Hospital right away.
After my father-in-law moved into Belvedere his health improved greatly…
Eventually, my mother-in-law joined Belvedere in late 2003. Both my in-laws and my family find that Belvedere is nice and clean. Every staff member… show love and care to the residents.
My father-in-law passed away at Belvedere Care Centre March 2007. I am thankful to everyone at Belvedere and would have no hesitation in recommending this facility to anyone.”
