The care you have given my mother has been so appreciated! I know she was in the best hands she could be. Your thoughtfulness and care of Mom, as with any patient, takes dedication and I believe the hands of God work through you. Please know I and my family are so very thankful!

I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the care my sister is receiving. She has Alzheimer’s and other than her difficulty remembering, she is in good physical shape. No family should have to deal with such a disease, but since we have no choice in this matter, it is nice to have a facility that takes care of the residents the way your staff does.

La Porte City Specialty Care has always had a special place in my heart since my dad was there. I wanted all the residents and staff to know how much you matter to this world.
