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 mother had to go to Westwood Specialty Care (in Sioux City) because of a stroke. I am very impressed with the kind and professional staff at Westwood. Their speech therapy department is the best of the best. After only a few weeks, she is speaking coherent sentences. I am very happy with Westwood Specialty Care and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a safe and well run facility.

I would like to thank your staff on every shift at Care Initiatives - State Center for looking after my friend and neighbor. I would appreciate very much if you could let the evening and night shifts know how she is a kind and loving person and has been throughout her life. I'm thankful that she has a place to turn to in the time of her life where she needs more assistance.
