I can’t say enough kind things about Shermaine, when my mother was 100 years old when she came to live at Sunnycrest, Shermaine was a shining light. My mother always adored her and She was so kind and thoughtful she would always make sure that my mom came down to play bocce ball or any other activities that were going on such as the senior Olympics. My mother lived for 3 1/2 years at Sunnycrest and always had a sparkle in her eye when she spoke of Shermaine. I would go and have lunch with mom about three times a week and any time you saw Shermaine she was never too busy to say hi and how are you doing, do you need anything she’s very valuable asset and I will gladly give a personal interview with anyone interested in learning about the wonderful kind and caring person Shermaine is. I know you will be very happy with her services.

It was in February 2011 when I first met Shermaine. I had suffered a stroke and was angry at the world. The day my daughter brought me to Sunnycrest Senior Living I didn’t want anyone to break into my ugly mood. Shermaine was waiting at the front desk and held my hand for no longer than a few seconds but it was an opening. I was not the easiest resident to get along with for my first couple months but Shermaine didn’t give up. She’s kind, gentle and a genuinely nice person. I loved the picnics to the park and the lunches in the nice restaurants she arranged for us. I still have pictures of some outings. Everyday she set up WI bowling so another (beautiful lady and I can’t remember her name) who also had had a stroke so we could gain strength and coordination in our affected arms. Every week Shermaine took us shopping. One week it might be to the Dollar Tree, Walmart, Ralph’s, or the Brea Mall. Sometimes someone might forget about the time and Shermaine would have to go find the late comers. She was never harsh or angry that she was late getting her bus load back to lunch. The bus held 11 residents. Halloween was fun because there was always a big party that Shermaine coordinated and at the end she read a story to the children. I remember this particularly because my youngest granddaughter was two and a half the first year I was there. Franny knew Shermaine and tried to climb on her lap. Shermaine made room and continued reading. I remember the Christmas lights and singing holiday songs each of my three years there. I’m back at Sunnycrest now and there’s no Shermaine to welcome scared, sad, or angry seniors to their new home.

We recently had to place my father Douglas Mahr into a care facility and this was our first experience in this part of life. My father was 89 at the time and soon to be 90 and his memory had started to fade. A friend introduced me to Shermaine and suggested that she might be able to assist us in the process of finding the proper care for my dad. In our search we learned that there are many facilities and as many levels of care. Shermaine has a vast knowledge of the types of care and also different facilities that provide the level of my father needed. She provided us with all of the information about the care level he needed and the best facilities for the care that was needed. We also had the pleasure of her accompanying us for tours of the places that she had recommended. Her knowledge and assistance gave us the information to make what we feel is the best decision and without her we would still be struggling to find the specific care that was needed. We moved my dad into his place in a memory care unit and he has been there for about one year and he is doing extremely well. Shermaine has truly been a blessing and was such a pleasure to work with.

Shermaine has been a responsible person in providing help, service, and guidance to the elderly citizens of North Orange County, I have known Shermaine to be dedicated and compassionate in providing the knowledgeable positive care for my father while he was a resident at Sunnycrest Senior Living Community. She is a positive enthusiastic warm person who is committed to the elderly sector of our community. She would be an asset in helping to choose the right environment for a loved one who benefits from an assisted living environment.

I first met Shermaine when I was in college and looking for a place to volunteer as part of my prerequisites for my major. She was very prompt in responding to my emails and I went in very quickly to meet her and tour the facility. She is by far THE most welcoming, caring, warm and vibrant person I have ever met. I only needed 60 hours of volunteer work and I loved it so much, I stayed for three more years. I only left because she left; it was just not the same without her. Helping assist her with all the senior activities, games and parties is one of my fondest memories. Her love and passion for helping others, especially seniors, is astonishing and contagious. She has a loving way of making everyone feel like family, myself included. Years and years later, we still keep in touch and I am beyond happy that she is following her passion of helping seniors. I find myself incredibly lucky to have met such a pure and authentic soul.

I have known Shermaine for 18 years. She is one of the kindest, most caring and supportive person I have ever met. Her dedication to you and your family, through struggle times is very comforting. Shermaine is definitely someone you would want by your side, to help support and guide you and your family during difficult times she treats you like you are part of her own family, and truly has your best interest at heart.

Shermaine is so incredibly caring. She genuinely wants the best for the people she is provideing services for, her will always go above and beyond to ensure they receive it. She listens, she comforts, and is present. Her support and advocacy for all her clients is incredible. Shermaine is a gift, special to senior living as a loved one may need special guidance.

Shermaine has a heart of gold and will do practically anything for anyone. People like Shermaine are hard to come by when it comes to caregiving. As she was not only my daycare provider, we also became dear friends and she helped me through a lot of trouble times and was always there for me. The trait she holds is very unique as I have encountered many people like her over the years.
