The nurses are very good to us. Everybody seems friendly and we get to meet new people that are enjoyable to talk with. Everything is very neat and clean. CNA’s are happy to wait on all of us. There is church three times a week and it’s nice to have that opportunity. I like that visitors are always welcome.

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.
