I cannot possibly thank all those who took good care of (my wife). You not only looked after her but you were aware of my needs and helped me through a very trying time.

Southern Hills 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.

Everyone was welcoming and very sincere. The department was very nice in every way.

NorthCrest Specialty Care

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.

Thank you to everyone for your efforts in making our parents welcome. This was a first and quite traumatic, and your TLC made this experience so much more comfortable. It’s peace of mind to know you have their best interests at heart.
