To the Editor:

We would like to express our extreme gratitude to the staff at the Village Crest Center for Health & Rehabilitation in New Milford, specifically the fourth-floor nurses and aids who took their time to treat our mother, Kathleen Hafker, with respect and dignity for the past three years.

We would highly recommend the Village Crest to anyone considering where their loved ones should live. Residents and their families are treated to a real small-town, familiar atmosphere from a kind and loving staff .

Thank you many times over for making our mother's end of life journey a happy and comfortable one.

Bob and Loretta Kretchko and family

New Milford
