I want to thank Home Instead Senior Care and the York Community for including our residents at Rest Haven - York in the "Santa To A Senior" program.

Christmas trees at Boscov's and Orthopedic and Spine Specialists were decorated with ornaments including each of our residents' first names and a gift suggestion. Shoppers were generous and caring by selecting an ornament from the tree and then purchasing a gift. Doug Hevner and his staff at Home Instead Senior Care wrapped all of the gifts and made a special delivery to Rest Haven - York.

Our residents are like family and mean a lot to us every day of the year. Clothing, body washes, lotions, stuffed animals, word search books, blankets and other items were delivered by Santa throughout our home. To see their expressions over receiving an unexpected, personal gift touched all of us.

This effort of time and generosity demonstrates the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you from the hearts of the residents and staff of Rest Haven - York. May 2013 be a healthy and happy year for everyone.
