I want to tell each and everyone of you how appreciative I am that my mother was a part of the Bedford Specialty Care family. The love, compassion, patience, kindness and gentleness that was shown reflected in how she responded everyday with laughter, wit and gratefulness. Thank you for making your home a home for Mother.

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.

Southridge Specialty Care

(Greenfield) The care that was given to my father was the very best. From all of the staff - from housekeeping, nursing and the kitchen - he lacked for nothing. His special diet needs were met, his inability to walk and his health issues were dealt with professionally and great deal of care. I cannot thank Care Initiatives enough.
