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.

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.

Thank you for the care you provided for our mom and for the support that you have shown our family. Our mom dearly loved Raelyn and Lori, and we found comfort in the words of Deb, Darci, Brenda, and Beth. You are all very special people.

I chose Dubuque Specialty Care because it was close to my house and I knew another person who lived there. They were happy with the care they were given. The staff here treat me excellent. I was so sick when I came, my medications had me so confused that I couldn’t walk. I was falling down all the time. Today, I enjoy going to bingo, music, manicures and meeting with the residents. I enjoy the food here, especially the roast beef with onions and cheese, the desserts, fresh fruit and the coffee. The atmosphere energizes me.

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.

I wanted to express my gratitude to your staff for the excellent care Mom received during her stay at Westwood. Mom spoke very highly of the entire staff and we took great comfort in knowing she was receiving excellent care.
