On behalf of all of our family, I want to thank you and all the staff for the excellent care for XXXXX during his time with you. Everyone was always so kind, loving, helpful and compassionate. We know he was well cared for. I appreciate that I was called with reports of even the littlest things concerning his care and health. We trusted all of you to give him your best.

Mom was there the day the Manly nursing home opened to start caring for people. The care and compassion that she received her last couple weeks was amazing - not only for her but our family. We are so grateful our mother was surrounded by such a dedicated staff.

I want to tell each and everyone of you how appreciative I am that my mother was a part of the Bedford Specialty Care family. The love, compassion, patience, kindness and gentleness that was shown reflected in how she responded everyday with laughter, wit and gratefulness. Thank you for making your home a home for Mother.
