A Big Thank You to everyone at Kingsley Specialty Care. It's great to be home. One day at a time. Knee and balance (are) doing well, of course my puppies won't let me out of their sight. Keep up the good work. Very appreciated all that was done for me. God bless you all.

Panora Specialty Care

The therapists were very professional, compassionate, and instrumental in strengthening and preparing our father to go home again. The nursing staff kept on top of all the medical needs our father needed during his recovery period here. They were very polite and kept us up to date with Dad’s medical progress. The nursing aids were kind, patient, and prompt with Dad’s personal needs and safety.

We would like to express our gratitude to the staff of Crestview for the wonderful care that our mother received during her time with you. Even more striking that the peerless level of professionalism found at all areas of Crestivew, is the obvious culture of caring and commitment to making each resident feel special.

Thank you goes out to Care Initiatives Hospice (Sioux City) who recently helped guide my father through the final stages of his life. Your services were timely, effective, compassionate and well delivered. A special thank you goes out to Heidi and those that attended to our father's needs!

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.

Everything was wonderful. I didn't think I was going to be able to return home but with the great care, I got to. The therapist and nursing staff help to make this possible. They are all now my friends.
