“Dawn at Timberland
The world begins in silence
A usual pitch-dark forest
Lonely trail in the dawn
The break of the day
Begins with a promise
Peace and hope
The shadow in loneliness
Steadily moves to the east
Hope, happiness, harmony
With inevitable certainty
Endlessly climbing trails
Moving forward steady fast
The reason is apparent
Faith and trust
For a better day ahead” –Kenneth H., resident
“Thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do to keep my mom, June, and all of the residents & yourselves safe & healthy. It means more to me than words can express. You’re doing a fantastic job, I am deeply grateful.” –Juniper J., family member of resident
“Our entire family is thankful for your professional and compassionate staff. I would like to thank the dining staff for hunting down food that Mom could eat and sending up food to support the daughter/caregiver. Your staff was always willing to help, encourage, and provide wonderful scenic adventures with commentary that mom really appreciated. Additionally, from start to finish, the staff worked tirelessly with us on every concern and found solutions. They are true “can-do” ladies. My thanks from the heart.” –Suzanne W., family member of a resident
“Thank you for the wonderful dinner in the dining room tonight. There were only 8 of us which is a shame. The food, including the best baked potato I’ve had here, was delicious and hot! The service is lovely, very personalized. I believe you all have done a masterful job getting the restaurant open, the servers are so pleasant and the kitchen staff is doing amazing work, to get dinners delivered as well as served in the restaurant.” –Suzanne W., resident

“The Ackerly at Timberland has given my mom the warmth and love that I desired for her. Along with the need to handle the problems of her extreme Celiac Disease. The Ackerly at Timberland took that challenge and has kept her fed with wonderful gluten-free meals. She receives the attention and care that has contributed to her good health and enabled her to reach the age of 97. Our family is extremely grateful for the Ackerly staff for giving her a wonderful quality of life. Thank you to everyone who comes to work each day and keeps my mom cared for, and safe, especially now!” – Bonny F., family member of a resident
“We have been very pleased with the care my father has received at The Ackerly at Timberland. It has just been over 2 years now since he arrived. We really appreciate the caring staff who interact with him. If you were to ask my dad what he likes best, I know he would say that he ‘really enjoys the food’, which is wonderful! Whenever I’ve had to call or email the Ackerly staff with any questions, they still seem really positive and upbeat.” –Carly H., family member of a resident
“Thank you so much for all the margarita fixings. They are already in the fridge, chilled for the celebration on Tuesday. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. ” – Diana, resident

“My mother-in-law, Joan Pratt, loves her class and in a conversation, I heard in the elevator it sounds like they all adore her and love going to her class. As well, she mentioned how she works with her friend, Ivy, and is helping to get her out of a wheelchair.” – Melissa P., family member of a resident
“The food is always yummy and barista from day to day w specials. It is delivered with such flair. It feels like a restaurant where the waitress knows who you are. ” – Gene, resident

“We moved our mom to memory care this past Friday. It was an emotional move, but one that was made exceptionally smooth due to the care that the staff put into the process. They went so far as to relocate the sofa that had been outside her AL room to now sit near her new MC room so that she would feel at home immediately. An incredibly thoughtful gesture.” – Bill M., family member of a resident
