I love working with Val. She is someone who takes care of people with the compassion and skill level that is needed and beyond. She is kind, loving and skilled at the work she performs. Val is always reliable and accountable. She is excellent at multitasking.  She knows how to properly prioritize and delicate work that needs to be done. I was very sad to not be working with Val anymore. She brings joy to the work place. It is a blessing to have worked with someone who is as compassionate and skilled at taking care of people.

 Valarie Mckinnon is the type of person anyone would be lucky to have caring for their loved one. She treats them like they are her family, with love, and with patience beyond most people’s comprehension. I have guardianship of my older cousin with Cerebral palsy, since her Ma passed. She is non-verbal with the mental age of about a 4 year old. She has a made up sign language and of course some of her family knows her made up sign language, but nobody else seemed to care enough to learn it. This was until we meet Miss Val, and SHE not only cared enough to learn her special way of communication, she worked to get her to actually speak a few words! (she could make sounds, like meow, but basically is non-verbal.) Although she is nonverbal, Val had her saying words like horse, a few colors, dog.... I know this doesn't sound like a big deal to many, but to us.... it was amazing!! Val was the first person to convince my cousin that she could have her hair done "up pretty", have her nails painted, and just be a girl! I can't even say how lucky we were to get to have Valarie in our lives, there just are not words to say enough. If you get a chance to have this woman take care of your loved one, know one thing, your loved one will be loved, treated like family, and taken care of with the best person in the world to do it!



To whom it may concern,
Val is the best boss I have ever had she gave me a chance when nobody else would. Val puts her heart and soul into her job she's a very kind person honest and trustworthy. If I had my own business Val would be the first person I would call for a job. I have learned way more from Val in just a few months then I have from anyone else.

I highly recommend Lake Michigan Senior Living for your loved one. Not only is the setting, home and views beautiful... the staff are excellent. When we were facing a big challenge finding the right placement for my step-father; Val gave us just what needed, peace of mind. The staff at LMSL have been absolutely wonderful caring for my step-father. They take the time to listen and they truly want to get to know their residents. The beauty of this residence is the fact that it is only a 6 bed facility. This means that staff won't be overwhelmed and can spend a lot of time caring for your loved one. My step-father is the 1st to move-in. I still can't believe that this place doesn't have a waiting list... I have been in the health care field for 37 yrs.; I can spot a good egg from a bad egg when it comes to quality of care- Lake Michigan Senior Living is a "Good" egg; I have visited many care facilities in Mason County and my step-father has actually stayed in a few. This is hands down the best facility Mason County has to offer in my opinion!! Thanks for all you do Lake Michigan Senior Living staff- keep up the great care!

To whom it concern,
   I have known Valarie a year when it came too working with her it was amazing. She has a heart of gold and cares for clients like they are one of her own family members. It was always a pleasure to work with her. She seemed to always have a smile on her face. 
    I would recommend her to all clients she always showed how skilled she was the clients warmed up too her, they seemed too listen to her. Their needs always came first. As a co-worker it was always good to come into work knowing she was there. She knows team work, she is a hard worker, and an all-around beautiful person inside and out.

A short paragraph cannot do justice to the service you have provided for my father when he needed it most. The top-notch care you, your family, and your staff provided for him was an absolute blessing, there is no one I would trust more with my father. Providing transportation, after-hours care, and  putting up with the odd quirks my father has, you went well beyond any requirements that were expected of you and for that I am forever grateful. Any home you run I am absolutely positive will be first class.

Thank you so much for everything you have done for my father, keep up the great work.
