Hospice Care

My dad has been a resident at Pinnacle Specialty Care since the facility opened and has had many medical issues. He struggles with Dementia and neurological issues. He always enjoys his meals and the CNA and nurses have been very attentive to his medical needs and in helping find activities he enjoys. The music there he enjoys and tells me how much he loves living here.

Awesome care center. All therapists are excellent. Nurses and most CNAs are excellent. Most meals are good. Bedrooms with individual bathrooms and showers are really nice. Will miss the staff now that I'm back home alone.

We cannot thank you enough for the great care you gave Dad. Everyone was so nice and we are so grateful that he was able to receive his therapy at your facility. Thank you for your compassiona, understanding and so much more. When we left him the first day, we knew he was definitely going to like it there which gave us peace of mind.
