Dear Erica,

On behalf of all of our family, I want to thank you and all the staff for the excellent care XXXX received during his time with you. Everyone was always so kind, loving, helpful, compassionate. 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 your very best. 

Sincerely,

Linda S.

Our family would like to express our gratitude for the care you gave Mother as a resident for almost two years. We found all staff to be most professional and very caring. Her room was spotless and staff was always willing to address concerns. We feel Southern Hills is a shining example of caring for those who are unable to care for themselves.

Thank you so very much for everything you did to care for XXXXX. Thank you also for the compassion you showed to me and my family during our final days with him. I don't know how I would have gotten through it without you all. XXXXX gave you some interesting days and you handled it with professionalism and compassion. I always felt respected. So many staff are now friends. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!

 My 92 year old father was in Correctionville Nursing and Rehab Center (aka Correctionville Specialty Care). The staff was amazing.  My father was well cared for by the nurses and all other staff. They were patient and kind with him as well as with my siblings and myself.

Your loving kindess to my mom is so appreciated. Your kind and fun stories about her are cherished! I have been watching the compassionate care of all patients for 5 ½ years. It is truly a gift of God. You are a very personal staff and for that we are grateful.

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!
