Hospice Care

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.

A huge thank you to each and every one of you for mom’s care, for nearly two years. The mums were beautiful. A special thank you to Mary Ann and Kristin for coming to the service. You are all special people!

Mother’s Day will be here in less that a month and I’d like to “thank you” all again for your kind, compassionate, and loving care given to my mom while she was with you. It was a relief to know she was safe and well cared for plus treated so kindly. Also, thank you for your sweet care and kindness to me and the family. All much, much appreciated. Again, many, many thanks!

Chariton Specialty Care

Forget all the stereotypes of nursing homes - this place rocks! The food is good, everything is spic and span, concern for safety and infection control - no shortcuts. Every single encounter with ever staff was caring, competent, compassionate. The therapist treated us (family members) like we were part of the team and was interested in our success. God bless them!

We would like to acknowledge the wonderful staff at Ridgewood Specialty Care in Ottumwa, IA. My dad was recently there for 20+ days for physical therapy. Everyone was attentive, patient, and well-informed. We were truly impressed and appreciative of the care and PT my dad received. He improved so much and we are very grateful. Thank you, Ridgewood.

I just wanted to comment on how exceptional you and your entire staff were for my dad and my family. I cannot tell you enough how happy we were to know that he was able to be cared for so well.
