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 very special thank you to the staff and residents at Valley View Specialty Care. I'm so grateful you were able to be a part of our lives the past seven years. Thank you for all the special love and care. You welcomed me each day when I walked through the door. You so often went above and beyond to care not only for XXXXX, but in so many ways, for me as well. You truly became my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I spent three weeks in the rehab wing of NorthCrest after major surgery. I could not be more complimentary of the wonderful staff and care I received. Every staff person made me feel that my recovery was their primary goal. I never comment on public postings but feel I must in this case. Waterloo is fortunate to have this facility.

From the moment I walked into Southern Hills I knew this was the place for Mom. Thank you for the love you gave her and sharing your memories with me. I am deeply grateful for all you have done.

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

I must commend the therapy staff. Over the years I have spent many hours in many different therapy departments. I would rate the caring staff at NorthCrest at the top of the list.

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.
