A very special thank you to the staff and residents at Valley View Specialty Care. I'm so grateful you were able to be a part of our lives the past seven years. Thank you for all the special love and care. You welcomed me each day when I walked through the door. You so often went above and beyond to care not only for XXXXX, but in so many ways, for me as well. You truly became my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I am so happy to be back home but I am thankful...for your care. I won't forget your kindness. I feel like I was given the tools to be at home. God bless all of you.

I was asymptomatic. The staff worked hard to keep everyone safe by wearing appropriate PPE. The staff was very friendly and attentive while I was in isolation.
