Thank You, the Bird of Paradise home!

To whom it may concern: It is with great confidence and happiness that we write this letter. We are so thankful to have found a spot for our Mom in your home. Our story is: Our Mom, Lura Bennett, could no longer live alone after falling several times, breakingher ribs, her hip and reaching a point where she could no longer cook for herself, shop for herself or take care ofher own basic needs. She lived in the South bay, we lived in Temecula. She did not wish to leave the beach area and we did not want her to live in a county or state run facility. We researched several properties and tried 3 places (which meant moving her 3 times!). None of them were satisfactory and she was going downhill fast. We finally realized we’d have to move her closer so we could be more involved in her care which takes us to the amazingly lucky day we found the Bird of Paradise, board and care home and Sarak and Kanika Suon. We are a family— all of us, together (including tanksgiving together and many celebrations together). Each person that lives there is made to feel very special with every special need being met above and beyond all expectations. Our Mom has been on their program for over a year. In the first month we noticed a hug difference in her health and emotional well being. She is on a consistently balanced meal with fluid intake monitored, given her medications perfectly as prescribed and given wise counsel by Sarak and Kanika —She has flourished and been given comfortable and secure days and nights including a night time buzzer alert at her bedside if she has special needs. With Sarak having the professional designation of being a physician assistant and Kanika having experience working with special needs children, they are the perfect combination of caregivers. They also share their children and their very special little dog, Victoria, with the residents. That is a big part of our Mom’s joy. She has looked and felt better thatn in the previous 5 years combined. If you are considering the Bird of Paradise home for your loved one, you are more than welcome to call us for a reference. We would be very happy to share our experience one-on-one with you. Call anytime. Sincerely, Tom & Crystal Bennett.
