My stay at NorthCrest has been very satisfying. The staff has been very accommodating and friendly. They didn’t make you feel like you were a burden and were most helpful. Every part of the facility was always clean and there was staff around no matter where you were. Everyone made me feel right at home. God bless you all!

Thank you for supporting our mother’s 100th birthday party “at her home”. Everything went smoothly all afternoon – which was made possible by Jodi. I cannot say enough positives about her for this day – but also for her weekly program.

Atlantic Specialty Care

The staff worked so well together and seemed to really enjoy the patients and each other. Leslie and Paulette have created an effective and compassionate culture of caring. The staff always seemed to welcome Lori/family as part of the team, encouraging our input as they educated us.
