  • Grand Haven nursing home residents receive great care

    To the editor:

    During the year of 2009, I painted inside Grand Haven nursing home. I had to work all shifts because of the residents. All the workers - from the top staff of Roy, Judy and Sissie to the rest of the workers - gave the residents great care. Never once did I hear a harsh word. They were always answered with “Honey, may I help you.” So if you have a loved one or friend there, they are getting good care. Now all they need is a visit from you.
