Dubuque Specialty Care is like home. You can connect with many people.  The staff at Dubuque Specialty Care treat me very well. They aim to please and the staff have big hearts. I have progressed 100% in every aspect. They offer a variety of menu options and change up the menus as well. I enjoy having pizza day and going on outings to the casino. I have made new friends and learned new things.

Montezuma Specialty Care

Dan was a resident from January, 2013, until June 11, 2016. He received wonderful care throughout that time, as did his wife who passed in December, 2013. Dan transitioned to the care under Care Initiatives Hospice in April, 2016. As his family, we were thoroughly impressed by the extraordinary, compassionate care provided by your entire team for Dan as well as for us. We thank all of you for what you do with such grace.
