God bless this awesome, wonderful staff and administration. Lori’s care was excellent and safe. Day and night – all requests for assistance was given with kindness, patience, and competence. Every staff member seemed to engage with Lori/family – treating our needs with dignity, love and respect.

Sibley Specialty Care

I would like to thank your staff on every shift at Care Initiatives - State Center for looking after my friend and neighbor. I would appreciate very much if you could let the evening and night shifts know how she is a kind and loving person and has been throughout her life. I'm thankful that she has a place to turn to in the time of her life where she needs more assistance.
