We are grateful when family and residents feel compelled to share their great care experiences. Click on “Family Stories” to read more.

I had four major surgeries at 2 different hospitals before going to Northcrest. Right away I met very helpful and nice people that made me feel comfortable and cared for.  They explained what they were doing and why, while making me feel at home. The people at Northcrest and Care Initiatives do really care. Hats off to all of you!

La Porte City Specialty Care has always had a special place in my heart since my dad was there. I wanted all the residents and staff to know how much you matter to this world.

...thanks again for all your team did for (my mom) while she was there.  I'm so grateful that she was well cared for and has a very good taste in her mouth about her experience.  She even liked the food!  Her care team of nurses, aides, therapy, and such all treated her very well.

Thank you for taking care of my mom. With her not able to speak English, i was impressed with therapy, CNAs and nurses going above and beyond to please her. Not only did they find ways of communicating with her, they took care of her as if she was their own family. All of the staff was amazing, including management.

I would like to thank your staff on every shift at Care Initiatives - State Center for looking after my friend and neighbor. I would appreciate very much if you could let the evening and night shifts know how she is a kind and loving person and has been throughout her life. I'm thankful that she has a place to turn to in the time of her life where she needs more assistance.

The best group of people I have ever met. They are a God-send. I love them all for the great job they did taking care of my mom. She was loved by all of them, and she loved them all, too.
