The staff worked so well together and seemed to really enjoy the patients and each other. Leslie and Paulette have created an effective and compassionate culture of caring. The staff always seemed to welcome Lori/family as part of the team, encouraging our input as they educated us.

Mom entered Sibley Specialty Care under the care of Care Initiatives Hospice. She was only there a week but we cannot express enough how wonderful the care was from both Sibley's staff and the Hospice staff. Our family so appreciated the gentleness and caring shown to our Mom.

I wish to express my personal satisfaction for the excellent care I received at Southridge. Your staff was great. Over and over I heard lots of ‘please’, ‘thank you’ and ‘you’re welcome’ both in my room and from conversations I overheard. The rehab team was also great. Best wishes to you all the great people who serve at Southridge!
