“This place is beautiful and the staff are amazing. My papa just recently passed away here and they were amazing every step of the way. I honestly have never met people that are so compassionate and love their jobs they were so great with my papa, thank you so much! I can’t express enough what you people did for our family! Thank you!”
“The sweet, compassionate way they treated Mom and us was beyond our expectations. No detail was left out. We spent 10 days there and it became home.”
“Words cannot express our sincere gratitude for the wonderful care our dear, sweet Dad received. Each and every staff member treated him with tender – loving care and respect. It was so beautiful to see you speak gently into his ear, make him comfortable and also make sure we, the family, were ‘OK’ too. All of you made this difficult time a little more bearable. You will be forever in our hearts.”
“This is better for me and my wife… we don’t have to worry about the medical side of things.”
“We are so thankful we can take him out into the courtyard in his bed.”
“The nurses are so kind, compassionate and funny at the same time.”
“We are treated like family.”
