The care I have been given at Northcrest has been exceptional. The staff is attentive and the facility is comfortable, clean and a fine place to recover.

Thank you just doesn’t seem sufficient for all that you guys did for Mom. It’s hard to put into words just how we all feel. Just want to let you know we are eternally grateful for everything.

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.

A Big Thank You to everyone at Kingsley Specialty Care. It's great to be home. One day at a time. Knee and balance (are) doing well, of course my puppies won't let me out of their sight. Keep up the good work. Very appreciated all that was done for me. God bless you all.

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.
