We would like to thank everyone (Chariton) for the very nice Christmas party. Tim and I really enjoyed it. The entertainment was good too. We wish all of you a great 2020.

Thank you just doesn’t seem sufficient for all that you guys did for Mom. It’s hard to put into words just how we all feel. Just want to let you know we are eternally grateful for everything.

Thank you (Greenfield) so much for the beautiful candle. Everything happened so fast. Had you spent time with Mom you would have enjoyed her sparkling personality. We applaud you for all that you do. We are so fortunate to have such compassion at our fingertips. Thanks again!

My words seem too small to express my gratitude for all your loving care for my mother this past year. Knowing mom was being cared for so well in our absence was a true blessing. Our whole family enjoyed the many kindnesses you afforded us especially at the holiday meals and events.

We want to extend our thanks to everyone for your care and concern for Mom. It meant so much to our family. This pizza lunch seem like a very small token of our appreciation however Mom loved pizza and she would have enjoyed the bars. She loved her sweets! God bless you as you continue working with those entrusted to your care, serving from your heart with patience and love.

Mom entered Sibley Specialty Care under the care of Care Initiatives Hospice. She was only there a week but we cannot express enough how wonderful the care was from both Sibley's staff and the Hospice staff. Our family so appreciated the gentleness and caring shown to our Mom.

 I enjoy being here! The staff is hard-working, the food is good, and there are lots of activities to participate in. I knew quite a few of the staff before coming to Belle Plaine Specialty Care and have made many friends since! I enjoy enjoys in Sara’s office and visiting as I have known her since she was a little girl. The facility is “cheery” and I would recommend it to anyone!
