Our Happy Families


I had been anxiously awaiting the opening of this wonderful home for some time to aid in the care of my husband but also for me, too. My husband has been coming from the very first week and he goes several times a week. He enjoys the many activities, other people attending, the very caring and professional Staff, and of course, the delicious meals.

I can now plan to have some “Connie Time” which is such a blessing to my health and attitude. I highly recommend you bring your loved one to Joyful Journey, and I know you won’t be sorry!

- Connie


It’s so comforting to know my mom will enjoy her day, every day, surrounded by caring Staff in a safe, warm place. She looks forward to her time with her friends and tells everyone she knows how wonderful Joyful Journey is.

For me, I get peace and encouragement as I connect with Staff and others I meet there. It’s a perfect fit, and it came at just the right time. What a blessing Joyful Journey is!

- Amy


The Joyful Journey staff does not view caring for their Friend as simply a job, rather they warmly welcome each Friend and treat him/her respectfully as a person.

Having Mom at Joyful Journey a couple afternoons per week has allowed me to get groceries, run errands, go to my own doctor and dentist appointments, spend time with my children, have a luncheon date with my husband, etc. all without Mom along– knowing that she is in good hands.

Joyful Journey gives Mom appropriate activities and individual attention; Joyful Journey gives me opportunities to tend to other relationships and other necessary tasks – what a respite in the midst of full-time care-giving!

- Leslie


As an administrative volunteer I have many opportunities to see JJ Staff at work. Their preparations are always thoughtful, caring, and thorough. Activities are often individualized to the unique needs of a particular Friend, and always appropriate and purposeful for the group they expect to see the next day.

If the day's plan is not working well, the trained and experienced staff and volunteers are flexible and ready to change course. Everyone is included unless they would like some time for themselves, which can be provided while never leaving anyone alone. The level of loving care provided in this home away from home is a rare find!
