Mom entered Sibley Specialty Care under the care of Care Initiatives Hospice. She was only there a week but we cannot express enough how wonderful the care was from both Sibley's staff and the Hospice staff. Our family so appreciated the gentleness and caring shown to our Mom.

Manly Specialty Care

I spent three weeks in the rehab wing of NorthCrest after major surgery. I could not be more complimentary of the wonderful staff and care I received. Every staff person made me feel that my recovery was their primary goal. I never comment on public postings but feel I must in this case. Waterloo is fortunate to have this facility.

LaPorte City Specialty Care

I love how all you Hospice caregivers are so involved with your patients and families. Caring for our loved ones, keeping us updated and explaining what is going on. I feel so much better for Dad that you are there for him. Supporting him, answering his questions, giving him someone to talk to that is knowledgeable about what is going on with Mom.

These people are wonderful. They moved quick when we needed them and made the last few days of my fathers life as peaceful as they could. Thank you.
