I wanted to comment on the great service provided by the Volen Center to feed and help those that may need a helping hand. The lunch services are wonderful. They provide a great service for the residents to eat a healthy lunch and also be able to touch base with friends. The food is healthy and assorted. Thank YOU..... - Richard C.
The highlight of every day for my mother was attending the Volen Center. She's been going there for over 5 years and attended every single day. She loved the socializing and above all, the sing-a-longs. She knew the words to just about every old song and would love to either lead the sing-a-long or help others with the words. The Volen Center made her feel like she had a "purpose" to get out of bed everyday and in her mind, the purpose was to have fun! Even as she weakened, had trouble walking and functioning, she was determined to keep going to the Volen Center. In fact, the last day that she attended was Friday, August 12 and by Monday, August 15 she was in bed with 24 hour hospice care ordered. She passed away a week later at age 98. As for our family, the Volen Center allowed us to keep her in our home and go about our family life with some semblance of normalcy. I work and it allowed me to continue with my job and have peace of mind that my mother was not only well taken care of but having a good time every day.Thanks for what you do for our community and families. You provide such a tremendous service to the area and we are forever grateful. - Kathy and Charlie August 2016

The Caregiver Support group has been an important source of strength during this most challenging time... I came to the support group in January, 2014. At that time, I was having great stress over my wife’s condition. After five months of attending meetings, my stress level has diminished. This is due to: understanding that I am not alone, that other people have greater problems than I do, and to the counseling group facilitator.” - David L.
"We would especially like to commend you and your caregivers on the beautiful way you are dealing with your clients' special needs. Anyone could tell the people in your care are loved and cherished no matter what their special needs might be. It was a pleasure to meet each of them individually and find out a little bit about them."

"The Volen Adult Day Care Center has become a wonderful addition to my mother’s life. It gives her the ability to leave her present day-to-day living conditions and explore other options… The moment you enter the facility, you are greeted by knowledgeable, caring personnel. [Clients] families know they are safe from the moment they arrive until they are back at their residences."
"I want to express our thanks for the wonderful service provided by the Volen Center to my father. He has been going every day for almost two years and I can say that the care and attention he receives are beyond compare… We can’t say enough good things about this great facility."

"About a year ago, I decided to send my wife to an adult care that had memory care. It was a very difficult time for me as I was very nervous about sending my wife somewhere. The staff has been extremely friendly, passionate and attentive. Now, after many months, my wife enjoys going there and I am confident that the staff is taking good care of my wife…"

"About two years ago, my husband… was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. I began looking for a day care center and decided to try the Volen Center. From the day he started, he enjoyed the Volen Center and looked forward to returning. I find the staff a devoted and caring group of employees. I feel lucky to have found the Volen Center. "

I would like to commend the staff at the Volen Center. In 2013, my father-in-law suffered a massive stroke which left him incapable of walking or caring for himself. Our family made the decision to care for him at home, but with that decision came a lot of new responsibilities and an extremely large learning curve. However, with the help of your staff, we have been able to take care of our dad at home and know that he is being taken care of during the day. We are confident that he is loved, respected and taken care of with dignity… We are truly grateful…

"[Our family] would like to express our extreme gratitude to the Volen Center. Because our dad attends the Volen Center, his daughters can work and fulfill family responsibilities. We couldn’t do so without the support of the Volen Center. The activities offer my father a multitude of benefits that help his dementia… It also offers emotional and counseling support for the family and caregivers. We would not know what to do without the support of the Volen Center, especially the transportation. I can’t say enough about how caring all of the staff is."
