I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the care my sister is receiving. She has Alzheimer’s and other than her difficulty remembering, she is in good physical shape. No family should have to deal with such a disease, but since we have no choice in this matter, it is nice to have a facility that takes care of the residents the way your staff does.

A beautiful, clean facility. Newer management that is attentive, genuinely cares about their residents, and kind. One of the few 5 star rated facilities in the area.

We want to thank you all for the great care you gave Mike. As he always told us, "everyone is so nice," the food is very good" and they take good care of me." It always made us feel he was in good hands. Thanks for all you do!

 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.

I wish to express my personal satisfaction for the excellent care I received at Southridge. Your staff was great. Over and over I heard lots of ‘please’, ‘thank you’ and ‘you’re welcome’ both in my room and from conversations I overheard. The rehab team was also great. Best wishes to you all the great people who serve at Southridge!

Words are not enough to let you know how much we appreciate you. Your compassion in carring for Mom meant the world to us.
