We can never thank (Sioux City Hospice volunteer Brian) enough for all the TLC you gave Betsy at the nursing home. If anyone has wings on this Earth, it’s definitely you. And now you have a special angel in Heaven watching over you, and that angel is Betsy!

After my husband passed, I caught Covid and I was having falls. It was hard for me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. After working with the therapy team, I am finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and now I am able to go back home. All of the staff have been excellent. If it hadn’t been for the therapy staff, I don’t think I would have made it through.

Mom (Grandma) lived at your facility for over 7 years and loved you all. We want to thank you for all the loving care you gave Mom over the years. During her final days she could not have had better care. The staff was so kind and took such wonderful care of Mom. Thank You.
