     Wow! My parents have resided at Applewood for the past year and they speak very highly of the staff and residence and express how much they enjoy being a part of the Applewood family. This week I experienced first hand the outstanding professionalism demonstrated by the staff. I observed residents and co-workers treated with respect, dignity, and much care, warmth, humour, and compassion. Applewood is a great model for the Kawartha area and beyond.        - C.B. Toronto
     On behalf of our family I want to express our sincere thanks to you and all your staff for the loving care you have given to our mother at Applewood. There was never a moment when any of us that she was getting anything but the very best care which could be given.Very many heartfelt thanks again to all of you. Applewood is the best!         - G and family. Peterborough
     We have been SO impressed with care Mom is receiving at Applewood. Everyone is so kind and considerate, and very understanding. From day one Mom liked her room and the food and has absolutely no desire to go home. She doesn't miss her home at all and really likes it there; she says she feels safe. So a million thanks to everyone!         - J.M. Peterborough
