Wapello Specialty Care

Our family would like to express our gratitude for the care you gave Mother as a resident for almost two years. We found all staff to be most professional and very caring. Her room was spotless and staff was always willing to address concerns. We feel Southern Hills is a shining example of caring for those who are unable to care for themselves.

Sandy’s compassionate and caring ways made our mother’s stay much more enjoyable, and mom and Sandy had an outstanding patient/caregiver relationship that made such a difference with our mother. We are very appreciative of this wonderful nurse!

I wish to express my personal satisfaction for the excellent care I received at Southridge. Your staff was great. The rehab team was also great. They were all very professional and we obviously interested in my recovery.

Best wishes!
