I was visiting my brother at your facility...I was very impressed. The staff, nurses, volunteer are supportive caring and dedicated. ....this is a shining example of how this type of facility needs to be run ...It is done is such a way that you show respect and a caring attitude about each member of the community. I want to extend my appreciation and thanks for a job well done. You are God's special blessing to lots of people.

Awesome care center. All therapists are excellent. Nurses and most CNAs are excellent. Most meals are good. Bedrooms with individual bathrooms and showers are really nice. Will miss the staff now that I'm back home alone.

Thank you goes out to Care Initiatives Hospice (Sioux City) who recently helped guide my father through the final stages of his life. Your services were timely, effective, compassionate and well delivered. A special thank you goes out to Heidi and those that attended to our father's needs!

I cannot say 'thank you' enough to the nurses and staff for all that was dne for Mom during her final hours. The family is so grateful for all the love and support given to us during this difficult time. You all went out of your way to make us comfortable. You were able to give her peace that we couldn't have done at home.

I worked for this company for over 3 years as a CNA. They have a great team at Heritage and they even paid for me to go back to school to get my nursing degree!

 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!

Maintenance man Randy great! (LOL!) Also the food was great! I am a picky eater but I enjoyed every bit of it! Ate it all! Thank you for the friendliness and making my stay good.
