Sandy’s compassionate and caring ways made our mother’s stay much more enjoyable, and mom and Sandy had an outstanding patient/caregiver relationship that made such a difference with our mother. We are very appreciative of this wonderful nurse!

I know from my time spent in your facility that there were so many of you who touched my uncle's life. I can't tell you how proud I was to see such a wonderful caring and outgoing team of employees working together day after day. Thank you for a job well done and I know from the bottom of my heart that my uncle wouldn't have been as successful without your assistance.

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.

Good food. I liked it - good selection. Bingo and music OK. Therapy pushes you a little bit, because I haven't done any exercise for years. I chose to come back for outpatient because they are helping me get back to who I was. Staff is friendly.

Dan was a resident from January, 2013, until June 11, 2016. He received wonderful care throughout that time, as did his wife who passed in December, 2013. Dan transitioned to the care under Care Initiatives Hospice in April, 2016. As his family, we were thoroughly impressed by the extraordinary, compassionate care provided by your entire team for Dan as well as for us. We thank all of you for what you do with such grace.
