...our thanks and appreciation for all that you, each in your own way, did to help H***** be more comfortable, physically & emotionally, these last 13 months. Especially thank you for your perfect timing on his 'last wish' outing.

Hospice Care

Our family would like to express our gratitude for the care you gave Mother as a resident for almost two years. We found all staff to be most professional and very caring. Her room was spotless and staff was always willing to address concerns. We feel Southern Hills is a shining example of caring for those who are unable to care for themselves.

I spent three weeks in the rehab wing of NorthCrest after major surgery. I could not be more complimentary of the wonderful staff and care I received. Every staff person made me feel that my recovery was their primary goal. I never comment on public postings but feel I must in this case. Waterloo is fortunate to have this facility.
