I had four major surgeries at 2 different hospitals before going to Northcrest. Right away I met very helpful and nice people that made me feel comfortable and cared for.  They explained what they were doing and why, while making me feel at home. The people at Northcrest and Care Initiatives do really care. Hats off to all of you!

Thanks to each of you for your love, respect and excellent care you give to all of us residents. During the difficult time of being so dependent, I felt your kindness. There was also the pleasure of wonderful food and varied activities. Thank you so much.
