I just want to say a hearty “Thank you” and express my appreciation for the very good, attentive, and generous care for my friend who just finished his stay at Delmar Gardens of Creve Coeur. All of you, especially you, Karah (Social Worker), Ebony (Nurse), Katrina (Nurse), and all of the other people who have been so kind and so helpful are very much appreciated. In the last three years I have had personal experience with at least four assisted living nursing facilities in the greater St. Louis area and I have to say that Delmar Gardens of Creve Coeur is #1 with me in terms of kindness, thoroughness, helpfulness and warmth. Your patience and understanding are truly admirable, both with your patients and for the family. Please pass on my thanks to everyone who helped my friend at a time that he was vulnerable. I am deeply grateful.
Dear Jeanna and all of the Delmar Gardens family,
For all the loving care heaped upon our darlin’ Lois Ann and all the great services provided – and for all the hugs and sincere expressions of sympathy.
Harold W. and our entire family
Just a note of thanks to the staff of Delmar Gardens. You know, every patient in your charge enjoys and prospers from the friendly and caring atmosphere you provide for them.
I know my husband couldn’t have been in better hands. Being able to leave, after visiting, without worry or anxiety is the priceless gift you give to all your patients’ families.
I think my wanting Bobby to stay a bit longer while he further strengthened is a compliment to all of you.
I am actually going to miss not coming here and seeing you, along with a number of patients I have come to know,
Well, that’s about it. Keep on doing what you do so well.
I am grateful for all the daily kindness shown by some of your staff, but I especially wanted you to know that Marlene at the front desk is always remarkably helpful. I have thanked her and said I’d send a note to let you know, as I am doing just that! She’s a peach!
Delmar Gardens Family,
On behalf of St. Monica, I want to thank you for all the canned goods that you donated to the poor. Our food pantry, run by the St. Vincent dePaul Society, is always in need. They appreciate it so much.

Thank you so much for the donation to the Food Pantry. So many people depend on these resources and especially at this time of year.
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Jeanna and Jane–
I wanted to thank you both for everything you did to allow my mother’s death to be as calm and really lovely as it was.
When Kendra called and asked me if I wanted hospice, I told her how important to me it was that the men and women I have trusted with her care all these years be the same people who are with her when she dies: the last thing we wanted were strangers with her.
Kendra told me many people came to see Bettie before she died–what an amazing thing to have happen. I get it that hospice absorbs a lot of costs, but there isn’t a crew around as kind and caring as the crew who cares for Bettie.
I hope the weekday staff know all of this, too.
Ebony and I cleared out her room today, shared a lot of laughter as we went through memories, and I left feeling so strange not to be coming there anymore.
And I also want to offer myself as a reference for any family who would like to talk to someone about the care their family member would receive in your home–just send me an email heads-up and let me know someone will be calling.
Thanks, for it all, dear friends.
I wish to commend the doctor, nurses, certified nurse assistants, physical therapists, nutrition staff, social workers, and administrators of the Delmar Gardens Creve Coeur skilled nursing facility for wonderful and outstanding care of my beloved wife, Frances, in rehabilitation care and, later, hospice care. I do not remember all of their names, but their loving care of Fran was stupendous! Jeanie, Kara, Cheryl, Michelle and all the rest made such a difference in the quality of Fran’s remaking time here.
Dear Delmar Gardens Family,
Thank you so much for the lovely floral arrangement in memory of Denise. Your thoughts and prayers were felt by my family. It is in times of need that the true friends emerge and wear so appreciative of your actions.
The care you provided Denise, and now our mother, Jeannie, is so much appreciated. I know we will continue to work together to comfort Mom.
Dear Nurse of Betty A.,
I am very grateful that my grandma switched to your care over three years ago. The change was night and day. Thanks to you and your team’s generous care my grandma’s life was extended. No only did you keep her alive, but alive with dignity. I was amazed to even see her walking for the first time in many years.
Grandma Betty appreciated everything you did for her, though at times this may have been difficult for her to communicate. I am very grateful for the flexibility of the staff that have been so generous in allowing me to visit my grandma and spend as much time as possible with her over the years. Being able to spend time with Grandma has been one of the most meaningful activities for me since moving back to St. Louis.
Thanks for all you did.
Dear Staff of Delmar Gardens:
I want to thank and commend the staff of Delmar Gardens of Creve Coeur for all of the wonderful care you provide to my mother. There aren’t enough words or gifts I can give you to show the appreciation my family has for knowing that our mother’s needs are addressed. Each department has STARS that go beyond their roles to ensure that she is as comfortable as possible in her new home. She has finally stopped asking me daily if she can go home and realizes that DG is her home. It is funny when I pull her out for over-nights at my house, she may even ask when she is going ‘home’-DG!
Administration is always responsive to any concern I have and I feel comfortable talking with each person (Kevin, Kara and Jane just to name a few.) I feel comfortable sharing concerns with her nurses and know that they will follow up. The aides you have assigned to Mom (Jessica and Shay) take care of her, and when Shay isn’t assigned to Mom on her shift, she comforts me in telling me that she will provide tips to whoever is assigned to Mom. The day cleaning staff is considerate and keeps the room clean. I would also like to compliment food service as I appreciate the variety of meals and that the staff works with me in judging if the meat is something mom can chew or if mechanical or a grilled cheese sandwich is needed. Laundry facilities is such a blessing as I don’t have to worry about doing it myself and they get the clothing back to Mom’s room and hung by color coordinated outfits, WOW! The activities department works with me to keep mom active and not in that room or bed. She even went to a Cardinal’s game! I am SO-O-O thankful for each person. I pray that God continues to touch you as you touch my mom.
