Dan was a resident from January, 2013, until June 11, 2016. He received wonderful care throughout that time, as did his wife who passed in December, 2013. Dan transitioned to the care under Care Initiatives Hospice in April, 2016. As his family, we were thoroughly impressed by the extraordinary, compassionate care provided by your entire team for Dan as well as for us. We thank all of you for what you do with such grace.

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.

LaPorte City Specialty Care

We only get to visit a couple times a year, because we live 14 hours away, but every single time we have visited, the staff has always been so helpful and friendly. They genuinely seem to care about the residents in their care and seem attentive to their needs. We are so thankful our grandparents have this place to call home.

Chariton Specialty Care

Your loving kindess to my mom is so appreciated. Your kind and fun stories about her are cherished! I have been watching the compassionate care of all patients for 5 ½ years. It is truly a gift of God. You are a very personal staff and for that we are grateful.

Northern Mahaska Specialty Care

I chose Dubuque Specialty Care because it was close to my house and I knew another person who lived there. They were happy with the care they were given. The staff here treat me excellent. I was so sick when I came, my medications had me so confused that I couldn’t walk. I was falling down all the time. Today, I enjoy going to bingo, music, manicures and meeting with the residents. I enjoy the food here, especially the roast beef with onions and cheese, the desserts, fresh fruit and the coffee. The atmosphere energizes me.
