My stay at NorthCrest has been very satisfying. The staff has been very accommodating and friendly. They didn’t make you feel like you were a burden and were most helpful. Every part of the facility was always clean and there was staff around no matter where you were. Everyone made me feel right at home. God bless you all!

I spent 3 weeks at NorthCrest in Jan 2018 recovering from major surgery. The following are my impressions of the facility. Physical building-the building was kept very clean, safe, and welcoming. The housekeeping staff seemed to be very thorough. The rooms are not large but were adequate for my needs. Food-the food was better than I expected in a nursing home environment. Staff-I cannot say enough nice things about the staff. Both nurses and CNA’s were excellent caretakers. Since returning home I have sung your praises everywhere!

Thank you for my pretty lily. I think of "Pat" when I look at it. A very special thanks to everyone who cared for Pat. It really does take "special people" to do your jobs! I appreciate each and every one of you and your many kind acts!

You have some really great workers, staff and administration in this facility. During my seven month stay, I enjoyed excellent care, good food and some pretty decent therapy as well.
